Robika The Adventurous Hungarian (eBook)
de Louise Andrea Dube
Sobre o livro
Robika begins as a child opera star in Budapest at the age of eleven. He is a commoner and has a secret love affair with a ballerina, the daughter of an aristocrat. Their relationship is forbidden, but in spite of it, their relationship becomes steamy and continues for 5 years. When Hitler’s army closes in on Hungary, the Opera house closes, and he is drafted into the Hungarian army while his ballerina escapes to Sweden.
WWII ends and Robika goes to work for the American Embassy and Is trained to become a secret spy. Within a few years, he is drafted into the Russian Communist Army. Four years later, he is arrested as an enemy spy. He is tortured for a year and is given a death sentence. The day of his execution, he is given amnesty and serves six more years as a political prisoner.
At the time of the Hungarian Uprising, the Soviets offer to release Robika providing he becomes a secret spy for the Russians. He accepts their offer and becomes a double agent, only to give the Soviets useless information because his heart lies with the Americans.
In due time, Robika cleverly devises a plan and successfully convinces both sides to help him escape the country without either side’s awareness. At long last, he kisses the ground when he reaches the Austrian border.
“Louise Andrea Dube’s Robika is a grand adventure definitely worth reading.” —ReadersMagnet Reviews—
