When Anglo American scientist, Professor Davis Macdonald, discovers that the formula he has been working on for years has been proven, he naively thinks that all mankind will benefit from his find. Under the aegis of the Soviet government, he has been living and working in a remote region of Soviet Russia where the inhabitants all live to a very old and healthy age. The Soviets are determined to keep this a secret so as to benefit only themselves, so when the Professor leaves on a trip to Venice, to attend a world medical conference, the Soviets send military agents to track him down and return him to the USSR. Tim Jordan is an American writer, working in Venice, who accidenally meets and befriends the Professor and tries to help him escape from the city which has been sealed off by the police and the local Communist supporters. The remainder of the story is one which would make a wonderful movie and one which would especially be loved by readers who have visited Venice. In his desperate attempt to keep the Professor safe, Tim moves him from one to another of his friends and acquaintances in all parts of Venice, only to see him betrayed, Judas like, for the promise of a large reward. It's an interesting and sobering look at the mercenary side of people in general, even one's friends in whom one had faith. Mad scenes follow involving speed boats, helicopters and thwarted lovers in this somewhat frenetic, but great fun read.

Thank you for the gift, ot2 ! :o)
