Budapest Noir

Budapest, 1936. The Hungarian prime minister returns from Germany in a coffin. His dreams of making Hungary a fascist state seem to have been cut short—or were they? Meanwhile, hard-bitten crime reporter Zsigmond Gordon, who believes he’s seen it all, finds himself in a seedy part of Budapest at an unusual crime scene: A well-dressed, beautiful young woman is dead, and the only item in her purse is a Jewish prayer book. Once Gordon begins investigating this mysterious murder, he knows there’s no turning back. He is quickly engulfed in a world of brothels, pornographers, and Communist cells, following paths that lead to the highest echelons of power. Whom can he trust? Whom should he fear? He’s not sure, but the more he finds people who try to scare him away from the truth, the deeper he digs in his heels. A twisty, suspenseful ride.
