KIRKUS REVIEW

This for the market of Escape from the Soviets, and others of the sort -- a dispassionate, almost impersonal account of the piled-up horrors of a prison camp of the Soviet Secret Police. Kitchin was a representative of Finnish interests -- and got caught on a technicality and sent for four horrible years to the far north. First hand data of Soviet methods and inefficiences --of the regime and a revealing picture of behind the scenes, of incredible brutalities. Well done and thrillingly absorbing reading.
