Salonika 1940. In the club de Salonique envelopes are changing hands; at fortifications on the Bulgarian border, a German secret agent is at work. Costa Zannis is a man in demand. Once a detective, he handles Salonika’s ‘political’ cases, enjoying contacts high and low in the Balkans and beyond. The city holds its breath as German sights fix on the region, despite Mussolini’s apparent tetreat, and spies – Turkish, German, British and Italian- gather at the ancient port.
