Istanbul in 1945, Leon Bauer a somewhat reluctant spy is thrust into an exciting and confusing mission with plenty of Int'l complications. His occasional boss is killed in a botched smuggling operation bringing a Romanian Nazi, a wartime butcher. A number of overlapping elements along with interesting characters and a vivid description of the city that bridges Europe and Asia. He builds suspense throughout the book as the unlikely master spy confronts situation after situation.
Very enjoyable read!
