    A neutral capital straddling Europe and Asia, Istanbul has spent the war as a magnet for refugees and spies. Even American businessman Leon Bauer has been drawn into this shadow world, doing undercover odd jobs and courier runs for the Allied war effort. Now, as the espionage community begins to pack up and an apprehensive city prepares for the grim realities of postwar life, he is given one more assignment, a routine job that goes fatally wrong, plunging him into a tangle of intrigue and moral confusion.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Would you ever listen to anything by Joseph Kanon again?

    Probably not


    Did Jefferson Mays do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    OK


    What character would you cut from Istanbul Passage?

    Any additional comments?

    Not as good as Alan Furst, Martin Cruz Smith, or Eric Ambler. The story drags to a point that I switched to something else
