Was the matter you? Why the long face? I'll tell you exactly what is wrong with me; my name is Midge Ure and my seminal 80s hit song 'Vienna' has failed to get to number one because of an irritating novelty song about an aggressive Italian - so shaddap you face! The fury that must have risen in the members of Ultravox as they spent 4 weeks at number 2, but never managed to get to number 1 must have been immense. Surely there is enough here to write a book? Perhaps there is, but you will not find this story in Olen Steinhauer's 'The Vienna Assignment'. Instead you will get a book about the Cold War during the early 60s and the bleak mistreatment of their own people . Read the complete review
