A Robbie Cutler Diplomatic Mystery

Set in today's Budapest with the 1956 Hungarian Revolution as background, this diplomatic thriller pits Robbie Cutler, American Embassy political officer, against Mafia contract killers.

Robbie Cutler, American Embassy political officer in Budapest, must solve a ghastly saber murder before the Mafia murders him. The clue lies in finding out which person betrayed his group of Freedom Fighters in the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. But they were all patriots, weren't they? The answer involves sorting through the past, finding the traitor, and unearthing a special love story, deepened by conflict against hopeless odds.

About the Author:
William S. Shepard served as Consul and Political Officer at the American Embassy in Budapest. He speaks Hungarian, and was made an Honorary Freeedom Fighter at the 25th anniversary of the Revolution, by the World Federation of Hungarian Freedom Fighters.

Aurhor Comments:

The Hungarian Revolution of 1956 blazed across the world like a comet of freedom. Fighting against hopeless odds, the Freedom Fighters provided the spark that eventually tore down the Iron Curtain. This is my salute to them.

Editorial Reviews

John Goodspeed
Devastating logic and deduction. Very well written, informative and entertaining. It reminds me of Eric Ambler's "A Coffin For Demetrios."

    A diplomat, a murder and a revolution

    The author brilliantly places an intriguing murder in the background of the post- communist diplomatic, political and moral upheaval in Eastern Europe of the 1990s with insightful, credible flashbacks to the event described by Henry Kissinger as a harbinger of the ultimate bankruptcy of the communist system:the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. A must read not only for lovers of murder misteries but history buffs as well.

    Terrible book -- don't read

    The first 50 pages are just about impossible to read...and it manages to get worse. Unlikeable characters, stilted dialogue, tedious details, implausible plot twists -- this book has it all. I actually wanted all the characters to get murdered! But, what do you really expect from a vanity press?

    Perfect Movie Material

    Robbie Cutler, Diplomat and finder of the hidden Freedom Fighters of Hungry. A must read after Consular Tales and Vintage Murder. Mr. Shepard's experiences as a diplomat just ooze into his writings. Believeable and exciting tales. Murder on the Danube should show up on the big screen real soon.
