When young German Jew Antonie Herrnfeld arrives in Buenos Aires on the eve of the Holocaust, she is plunged into a complicated tangle of spies and counter spies.Shortly after her arrival, Stefan von der Heiden, a Nazi diplomat stationed in Buenos Aires, seeks to recruit her as a spy. He dangles a forceful incentive: the lives of her parents, still in Germany. The British, meanwhile, tell her that her parents are dead. She is soon working as a double agent for the Allies, threading her way through Buenos Aires's underworld-its bordellos, back rooms, and beer halls. Her handler is an American named Larsen who teaches her the arts of spycraft, and the techniques of the double agent. As her life goes into a tailspin of double-crossing and mysterious meetings, she risks alienation from her own family. In the exhilarating but deadly existence she leads, she cannot help but fall for Larsen. Meanwhile, Stefan, whose father is assassinated by the Gestapo, has a change of heart, renounces the Nazis, and begins an ardent pursuit of Antonie. When he becomes the only man who can save her life, the double agent must mount her finest campaign.
