520    "Decades before Robert Brown Parker began writing his 
       books about Spenser, a man named Robert Bogardus Parker 
       (1905-1955) penned this extraordinary novel of post-war 
       intrigue. From the corridors and compartments of the 
       Orient Express to the shadowy, ruined streets of Budapest-
       - which he saw firsthand as a foreign correspondent during
       World War II-- Parker takes you on a nightmare tour of a 
       land where life is cheap, old hatreds run strong, and a 
       couple of Americans can find themselves in more danger 
       than they ever imagined. With all the immediacy of the 
       wartime dispatches Parker filed from Turkey, Danzig, 
       Warsaw, and Bucharest and all the authority of a man who 
       himself spent three years crossing borders without a 
       passport and narrowly avoiding arrest by the Gestapo, 
       PASSPORT TO PERIL paints a heart-stopping picture of 
       desperate men in a desperate time" -- from publisher's web
