The passing of the Hungarian prime minister before he could realize his dream of a fascist state has little effect on crime reporter Zsigmond Gordon. Life--and death--go on in the bustling old city, and a late-night tip soon leads him to a crime scene where a young woman lies dead, a Jewish prayer book in her purse. Disturbed by the bizarre circumstances--the corpse of a beautiful, well-groomed, religious victim abandoned in one of Budapest's seedier neighborhoods--Gordon is determined to unravel the mystery of her demise, especially after her shocking identity is revealed. The investigation will lead him deep into the city's dark underbelly--a shadow world of pornographers, crime syndicates, and Communist cells--and to the highest echelons of power, where one of Hungary's most influential executives plans to make an economic killing through his strong political ties to Germany's leaders, if he can somehow keep secret the fact that he was, at one time, Jewish.

Thrilling, albeit predictable. The setting of late 1930's Budapest made the book interesting. A fun, easy, day read.
