Thriller Crime | Fiction
A neutral capital 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
Played out against the bazaars and
mosques and faded mansions of this knowing, ancient Ottoman
city, Leon’s conflicted attempt to save one life leads to a
desperate manhunt that ultimately threatens his own
survival. How do you do the right thing when there are only
bad choices to be made?
Rich with atmosphere and
period detail, Istanbul Passage is the haunting story
of a man swept up in the dawn of the Cold War, of an
unexpected love affair, and of a city as deceptive as the
calm surface waters of the Bosphorus that divides it.
