Description

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.
