Summary
"A neutral straddling Europe and Asia, Istanbul survived the Second World War as a magnet for refugees and spies, trafficking in secrets and lies rather than soldiers. Expatriate American businessman Leon Bauer was drawn into this shadow world, doing undercover odd jobs and courier runs in support of the Allied war effort. Now, as the espionage community begins to pack up and an apprehensive city prepares for the grim realities of postwar life, Leon is given one last routine assignment. But when the job goes fatally wrong--an exchange of gunfire, a body left in the street, a potential war criminal on his hands--Leon is plunged into a tangle of intrigue, shifting loyalties, and moral uncertainty."--Provided by publisher
Summary
