Summary
"The year: 1954, the height of the Cold War. The world is divided into East and West. In Naples, Lucky Luciano and his minions are busy fixing horse-races, and overseeing the creation of the global heroin trade. In Hollywood, members of Her Majesty's Secret Service have a dangerous mission for the supremely elegant actor Cary Grant. And in Bologna, Pierre Capponi, a lovelorn young barman, is about to embark on a painful odyssey in search of his missing father, one that will end up taking him half-way around the world." "Bringing together all these strands and more is a missing television set, a McGuffin Electric, an appliance with a very special secret." "At once an adventure story and a comic caper, a political thriller and a touching romance, 54 has a cast ranging from Italian partisans to KGB agents, from American Mafiosi to Parisian lowlifes, and features cameo appearances by Alfred Hitchcock, Marshal Tito, Grace Kelly and the Emperor of Indochina."--BOOK JACKET
