Are you interested in the period just following World War II? Or maybe you’re interested in Istanbul, Turkey? Or do you just love a good spy novel? Either way, the newest book by Joseph Kanon is for you.
Istanbul Passage is a spy novel — a complicated and suspenseful tale that will leave you wondering who is doing what to whom up to the very end. Everyone could be a spy, and we can never be absolutely sure which side a person is working for—the Americans, the Russians, or the Turks. Kanon sets all of this in Istanbul just after the end of WWII when there are still Nazis that both the Americans and the Russians want to debrief, where a neutral Turkey is finally going to be required to pick sides and nothing is as it seems.
