About
A half-starved young Russian man in a long black overcoat is smuggled into Hamburg at dead of night. He has an improbable amount of cash secreted in a purse round his neck. He is a devout Muslim. Or is he? He says his name is Issa. Annabel, an idealistic young German civil rights lawyer, determines to save Issa from deportation. Soon her client’s survival becomes more important to her than her own career - or safety. In pursuit of Issa’s mysterious past, she confronts the incongruous Tommy Brue, the sixty- year-old scion of Brue Freres, a failing British bank based in Hamburg. Annabel, Issa, and Brue form an unlikely alliance - and a triangle of impossible loves is born. Meanwhile, scenting a sure kill in the so-called War on Terror, the spies of three nations converge upon the innocents . . . Poignant, compassionate, peopled with characters the reader never wants to let go, A Most Wanted Man is alive with humor, yet prickles with tension until the last heart-stopping page. It is a work of deep humanity and uncommon relevance to our times.
