"Jandečková pulls back the curtain to give us a glimpse of the inner workings of Communist Czechoslovakia’s secret police in connection both with the false border operation ‘Kamen’ and the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of Foreign Minister Jan Masaryk. A fascinating study that enhances our understanding of this tragic period." James R. Felak, University of Washington "The author has long experience with security police archives and brings together material never before presented in a joint analysis. The text will be very valuable to all who are interested in the operations of Soviet-style authorities and in secret police methods generally." Geoffrey Hosking, School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London "This study is a meticulously researched and convincingly argued masterpiece. It is also immensely readable and full of fascinating depictions of the personalities involved. It is a marvelous piece of work, a major contribution to our understanding of the early postwar years of the Cold War." Igor Lukes, Pardee School of Global Studies, Boston University
