A writer moves to Greece just as the Nazis invade, and he soon becomes a pawn in a dangerous game of espionage After the death of his wife, Mike Morrison arrives in Greece simply to receive an inheritance and come to grips with his grief. But it's a bad time to nurse his sorrow-it's the beginning of World War II, and the German army storms the country before Morrison can leave. He's soon caught in a complicated cat-and-mouse game with Gestapo officers, British spies, and the Greek resistance movement. At the mercy of strangers, Morrison has to learn who to trust-and who to love. Leon Uris's fast-paced second novel draws from the diaries of an uncle who served in Greece during World War II. It was made into a film in 1959 starring Robert Mitchum. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Leon Uris including rare photos from the author's estate.

This is a very good old-fashioned cat-and-mouse war-time spy story. It is a pleasant easy read: the plot is exciting, the setting authentic. Unlike modern authors who write about the Second World War, Leon Uris has lived and fought in it. There is no deep characterization, but the Greek characters are vividly drawn, most of them very courageous, some treacherous.

yeesh. How predictable. Basically just pulp. No depth, no research. Not even very good plot or twists. Characters are stereotypes. I'm not even sure why I bothered to finish it.
