The Star of Istanbul free pdf World War I is in full swing. Germany has allied itself with the Ottoman empire, persuading the caliphs of Turkey to declare a jihad on the British empire, as U.S. President Woodrow Wilson hesitates to enter the fray. War correspondant and American spy Christopher Marlowe Cobb has been tasked to follow a German intellectual and possible covert agent aboard the ship Lusitania, as he is believed to hold information vital to the war effort. Aboard the Lusitania on its fateful voyage, Cobb becomes smitten with famed actress Selene Bourgani, who for some reason appears to be working with the Germans.
Soon Cobb realizes that this simple actress is anything but, as she harbors secrets that could pour gasoline on the already raging conflict. From the fateful voyage of the Lusitania to the darkest corners of London, to the powder keg that is Istanbul, Cobb must use all the cunning he possesses to uncover Selene Bourgani's true motives, only to realize her true agenda could bring down some of the world's most powerful leaders. On his own across the war-torn stages of Europe and the Middle East, Cobb must venture deep behind enemy lines, knowing he full well may not return.
A classic tale of adventure, romance and war, THE STAR OF ISTANBUL firmly cements Robert Olen Butler's place as one of the great historical thriller writers today.
