‘Moon Over’ chapter alert and author’s notes!

Those two Russian guys hanging around outside Ian’s apartment? They’re getting bold. But what are they doing blocking Ian’s path on the sidewalk? And where the hell is Dima? Has the gang underestimated what they’ve gotten themselves into? Borin hasn’t underestimated anything, and he’s at Checkpoint Charlie now, headed into West Berlin. In civilian clothes. What’s he up to?

Author’s Notes:

Until reunification in 1990, Berlin was an occupied city administered by the Four Powers Agreement. The US, UK, France, and the USSR each controlled one occupied “zone” of the city. The Soviet Union walled off the American, French, and British zones to keep East Germans out, but all soldiers of the Allied armies of occupation had the technical right to enter and travel in any zone.
