Read full description of the books:
THE REDISCOVERED PULP CLASSIC! — On the Run -- Behind the Iron Curtain! — Decades before Robert Brown Parker began writing his books about Spenser, a man named Robert Bogardus Parker (1905-1955) penned this extraordinary novel of post-war intrigue. — From the corridors and compartments of the Orient Express to the shadowy, ruined streets of Budapest -- which he saw firsthand as a foreign correspondent during World War II -- Parker takes you on a nightmare tour of a land where life is cheap, old hatreds run strong, and a couple of Americans can find themselves in more danger than they ever imagined.
With all the immediacy of the wartime dispatches Parker filed from Turkey, Danzig, Warsaw, and Bucharest and all the authority of a man who himself spent three years crossing borders without a passport and narrowly avoiding arrest by the Gestapo, PASSPORT TO PERIL paints a heart-stopping picture of desperate men in a desperate time.

Read information about the authorRobert Bogardus Parker, (1905-1955) not to be confused with Robert B. Parker (1932-2010). A lifelong newspaper man, the elder Parker reported from behind enemy lines during World War II, bringing home news from Germany, Poland, Russia, Turkey, and Japan. He was also an agent for the OSS—the precursor to the CIA—and had a hand in freeing Jewish prisoners in Europe and carrying out communications activities for the U.S. Back home after the war, Parker worked as United Nations bureau chief for the New York Daily News. He wrote three books decades before his namesake (no relation) began writing the best-selling Spenser novels.
