Abstract:

"Traders, liars, and spies. No heroes, no villains, no patriots. In the world of commercial espionage there are only buyers and sellers. What have you got and what do you want for it? Surely, this is no place for Roger Levin, who's making a simple delivery-$100,000 in untraceable bills to Paris, no questions asked. But the City of Light proves a dangerous if romantic place, and Levin finds himself caught among Arab assassins, expatriate wheeler-dealers, double agents, and femme fatales, who know where to sell a heart after they've stolen it. He was definitely in over his head, and getting curious. Could it be that the City College class ring he promised to deliver for his uncle was less harmless than it appeared? Levin strikes back with his two best weapons-a wicked sense of street smarts and a savage sense of humor. But the buyers and sellers take him apart piece by piece, until he finds, underneath the irony, underneath the poses, his wandering conscience"--Jacket flaps.
