After World War II, a magical barrier came up dividing Berlin into East and West.  The barrier was supposed to last forever, but after just ten years there is a breach.  Once again, the Europeans have called in the Americans to help with their problem. Karen has no idea what she’s in for – not the amount of sexism she will encounter, nor the hatred of magicians by non-magicians, nor the true levels of espionage involved.  It is almost like throwing a lamb to the wolves, but Karen has resources and smarts of her own – much more than men would credit her with.

Some knowledge of the Cold War will help with understanding or finding interest in this magical number. The beginning is a bit dull, but the ending has all of the fireworks you could hope for.
