Con man, missionary, freelance spy, Buddhist abbot, international persona non grata, Lincoln was a modern-day Proteus. From his birth in turn-of-the-century Hungary to his final days in the Shanghai YMCA during World War II, he captures our interest. Lincoln's extraordinary career and global wanderings are rescued from obscurity in this engaging feat of historical detective work, which depicts him as a false messiah who shared attributes with the period's great dictators. As history, biography, or adventure, this is a fascinating book written with authority and wit. Jerry Maioli, Western Lib. Network, Olympia, Wash .
