It is the summer of 1940 and Europe is involved in the war as the Nazi war machine takes its toll.
International screen legend Lili Sterne enlists the help of Jack Teller to find her childhood friend, Eva Lange. Jack is happy with his life as a professional stuntman and a ladies' man but he now thinks a change might do him some good. Why? Jack had an affair with the wife of Charlie Wexler, a powerful man in the movie industry. Charlie is now seeking revenge on Jack.
It is believed that Eva is in Lisbon where she is among the thousands of
refugees who are in hiding.
It turns out that Jack is not the only one interested in locating Eva. Eddie Grimes, a Hollywood detective, was also looking for her until he was discovered dead. The last information from Eddie concerning Eva indicated that she was in Lisbon and was trying to get to London.
Jack soon discovers that he is not getting any answers - only lies. It gets to the point where he doesn't know who he can trust. This is something Jack must decide as he continues on to try and put together this web of murder and betrayal.
Is Jack successful?
The Lisbon Crossing is a well-written novel with a captivating plot. It has all the ingredients one likes to have in a thriller - suspense, murder, lies, deceit, and betrayal. The characters are well drawn and help pull the reader into the story. I feel the author could have done a little more with setting up the atmosphere for the many locations of the story but nonetheless readers will be pleased with Tom Gabbay's novel of non-stop action.
