About the book
Used book. Paperback. Large Print. Good condition
Paris, 1939. A sensational story hits the tabloids: the murder/suicide of an Italian political émigré and the wife of a French politician in a lovers’ hotel. The assassination soon emerges as the work of OVRA, Mussolini’s secret police; the émigré was the editor of a clandestine newspaper opposing Italian fascism. The new editor is Carlo Weisz, a foreign correspondent for Reuters. Reporting from war-torn Spain, Paris, Berlin and the Balkans, Carlo becomes the target of OVRA, as he lives out his secret spy life and his secret love life.
