In this deft and witty story, suspense is maintained throughout a long bus ride from Munich to Istanbul. The hero is a London barrister, who has agreed to serve as witness in an intelligence plot, just once, as an amateur. Things go wrong - he has not been told enough - and he meets real danger before his eventual escape.
