 Synopsis  Reviews  Information
Two charming characters embark on a glamorous adventure on the Orient Express - and find themselves on a thrilling ride across Europe and into the just-barely unveiled territories of psychoanalysis and revolutionary socialism. Discouraged by the demise of his marriage, Gerard flees to London only to become entangled in the wild schemes of Lady Diana Wyndham and her plan to rescue rights from a Russian oil field under the control of anti-capitalist revolutionaries. An influential classic that set the standard for intellectual, politcal thrillers.
