“I was absolutely confident about three facts.
First, Wallenberg was an incredibly seductive man and not just a hero.
Second, there was a part of him – and I don’t know how far-reaching that part might be – that I plainly needed to defend.
Third, I was unconditionally and irremediably in love with him.”
A love without limits that will push a man to risk his life to save the woman he loves, not knowing that many years later that same woman will come back to save his own life. A phenomenal, breathtaking, thriller and love story.
This novel is based on a true story. Disappeared in mysterious circumstances, Wallenberg was an undercover agent who saved thousands of lives. The documents of several international commissions’ inquiries, the CIA papers made available by the Freedom of Information Act, finally give a solution to an unsolved mystery.
