Lieutenant Otto Prohaska of the Austro-Hungarian Navy takes an ill-considered break from duties to engage in a mad fling with a Polish actress. After a desperate attempt to elude his lover’s husband, he finds himself mistaken by anarchists as one of their own. Otto soon masters their code names and secret handshakes, but when he also learns of their plans to assassinate the Archduke Ferdinand in Sarajevo, his duty is clear. He must alert his superiors--now, if only he can find someone who will believe him!

“[A] robust sequel to A Sailor of Austria . . . Skillfully mixing derring-do with tragedy as well as stringent wit, Biggins offers a vivid catalogue of world history 1909-1918 . . . This is engaging fare-reminiscent of George M. Fraser's Flashman series, but darker." —Publishers Weekly

“Biggins writes with a fine sense of the sea and a truly marvelous wit.” --Booklist
