Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060804807, Paperback)

An Eastern-block country, shaped like a broken penny, was being torn apart by warring resistance movements. Only one man could unite the hostile factions - Professor Jacob Arbitzer. Arbitzer, smuggled into the country by Charles Garden during the Second World War, has risen to become president, only to have to be smuggled out again when the communists gained control. Under pressure from the British Government who want him reinstated, Arbitzer agreed to return on one condition - that Charles Garden again escort him. The Broken Penny is a thrilling spy adventure brilliantly recreating the chilling conditions of the Cold War. 'Thrills, horrors, tears and irony' - Times Literary Supplement. 'the most exciting, astonishing and believable spy thriller to appear in years' - The New York Times
