The books are:

I have "Silent Lies" by M. L. Malcolm available. I'll admit I didn't finish it because I have so many other books to read and this just wasn't for me, but it looks like a book that someone of the female persuasion would like. Check out the reviews on amazon. There is only one copy available on PBS and it is on my bookshelf so go order it.

Inspired by true stories from the author's family, Silent Lies tells the story of Leo Hoffman, a dashing young Hungarian with a gift for languages who inadvertently becomes embroiled in an international counterfeiting scheme during the general chaos following WWI.

When the botched plans end in a murder, Leo flees to the scandal-filled city of Shanghai, hoping to make a new life there for himself and the woman he loves.

However, one small compromise sets off a series of events that will eventually threaten everything he holds dear, as Leo discovers that the nefarious gangsters who run Shanghai from the shadows do not intend to let him escape his past.

Malcolm blends real historical figures with fascinating fictional characters to recreate an engrossing but rarely-explored piece of the past. Filled with intrigue, passion, history and adventure, Silent Lies recaptures a glittering world that no longer exits, while spinning the riveting tale of a family caught up in the tumultuous events of the decadent era between the two world wars.

Oh, ISBN for my copy is 9780981572611

Stopped at St. Vincent De Paul today and picked up an old Plaidy for a friend who I've found has a copy. Willing to send it off if anyone is interested, just PM me.. The Spanish Bridegroom and that is the cover that I have. The pages are a bit yellow-ish but otherwise intact.
