An amusing screwball comedy that makes for a clever, quick read.

A combination thriller and love story that I kept waiting would get better -- too many names with not enough depth to most of the characters so that i had to keep looking back to figure out who was who. One of thiose books I should have put down.

Recommends it for: Hungarians and their friends
interesting 20th century Hungarian author (pre Communism). Purchased English version in Budapest this summer -- nice translation (Corvina Press)

It's like reading a Hungarian P G Wodehouse, in a farce cum detective story. Flippant, silly, jolly good fun.
