Another spy story, this one set in the 1970s in the U.S. and eastern Europe. The main character is completely unbelievable, and I was annoyed that the only female spy in the book was such an airhead, but at least the plot moved along reasonably well. The premise is that a scientist in the nation of Crau has devised a formula that must be destroyed. The scientist’s lab is inside a heavily fortified prison, and only a tight-rope-walking mentalist (I told you, he’s unbelievable) can do the honors. He travels to Crau along with his circus, with other characters dropping like flies along the way. I’ll spare you the details of the climax, but this one just couldn’t hold me.
