    Trouble Is My Name is an action packed Cold War thriller that takes Drum to the divided Germany of the late fifties He tangles with Communists ex Nazis and fortune hunters both in West Germany and behind the iron curtain in East Berlin although interestingly this was written a few years before the construction of the Berlin Wall where a journey between the two sides involved getting through guard posts but not having to brace that barrier The story feels far like an espionage adventure story than a private eye caper It is uite a good read but has a darkness and a gloom about it
