JACKET NOTES:  WW II is over and Italy, has become the Allied Powers' political pawn...

BRIAN O'HARA--A former OSS operative living in Italy, he has left behind his passionate political ideals to pursue his love of Italian literature. But his scholarly existence is disrupted when he is forced back into the deadly world of covert operations.
CARLO GUARINO--A former communist partisan and confidant of O'Hara, he is now a powerful political figure whose plans for drastic social reform could determine the outcome of the upcoming elections. To achieve his goals, Carlo needs financial support and is willing to conspire with the highest bidder.
EGON HALDEMAN--A former German officer, Haldeman's freedom is in constant jeopardy. Determined to build a life of luxury, he has become a slave to his own materialistic desires. If the price is right, he'll deliver results even if it means risking his own life.
