A Dead Man in IstanbulBook - 2005
Istanbul, 1911. The Second Secretary of the embassy in Istanbul has died in decidedly strange circumstances while attempting to swim the Dardanelles Straits, the passage between Europe and Asia, heavily used by warships, liner, tankers and cargo vessels of all kinds. A romantic attempt to repeat the legendary feat of Leander, as the embassy claims? Or an attempt to spy out a possible landing place for a British military expedition, as the Turks insist? Whichever, Cunningham has ended up with a bullet in his head.
