The place is Hungary, a few years after the revolution, that put grey men on every corner of the once beloved and peaceful land. Michael Reynolds is a british agent, sent to Hungary by his suppereors on a quest to free a known scientist from the cludges of the evil rulors of Hungary, who want him for themselves. On his way, he is assisted by freedomfighters, lead by the tough and unforgiven leader Janchy, who has fled the camps in Siberia, where he was imprisonned for his love of freedom. The henchmen of the Hungarians are cruel and vicious, but the one man I loved in the book, was the Count. He was from Polen, where he had once recided together with his six children and his beautiful wife, until the soldiers came. The Count barely got away, but when he says in the book, that his family is in a safer place, there is no doubt what he means. His family was killed, and his own exit in the book is both heartbreaking and couragous. A marvelous book from an exelent writer, who sadly is not with us any more.
