The passing of the Hungarian prime minister before he could realize his dream of a fascist state has little effect on crime reporter Zsigmond Gordon. Life--and death--go on in the bustling old city, and a late-night tip soon leads him to a crime scene where a young woman lies dead, a Jewish prayer book in her purse. Disturbed by the bizarre circumstances--the corpse of a beautiful, well-groomed, religious victim abandoned in one of Budapest's seedier neighborhoods--Gordon is determined to unravel the mystery of her demise, especially after her shocking identity is revealed. The investigation will lead him deep into the city's dark underbelly--a shadow world of pornographers, crime syndicates, and Communist cells--and to the highest echelons of power, where one of Hungary's most influential executives plans to make an economic killing through his strong political ties to Germany's leaders, if he can somehow keep secret the fact that he was, at one time, Jewish

A Korona ügynöke by Vilmos Kondor( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in Hungarian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In 1876 Miklós Gyra lived with the lives of the not very successful Pest lawyers: he has an office in the Fishy Fishy Seas, with an officer in it, and a defendant accused of hurting the Emperor. He does not share his comfortable apartment with his wife and child, but this bourgeois idyll is suddenly blown into pieces by a shipment. It contains a diary and its sender is a man named Wargha. Turning the book, Gyra is presented with an intricate story centered on the Holy Crown. Gyra does not want to know less than who sold the crown that disappeared without a trace in the final hours of the 1848-49 War of Independence, and then suddenly finds it a few years later, so József Ferencz could crown him as a Hungarian king. Who exposed the hiding place in the Habsburgs? Who was the Crown Traitor - or Savior? A good-looking lawyer is about to come up with the freshly united in Budapest. The crown's agent tells the story of the first generation of Wertheimers, a family that protects the crown. Interestingly, adventure is abundant and historically credible, exactly as it is expected from an excellent historical adventure story." --
