3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not complete, 14 Aug. 2004
This book is impressive in that it contains a considerable amount of useful information about Budapest and the surrounding area. Within its pages, the key cutural sights/activities within Budapest are described in reasonable detail. These include a visit to a Turkish bath and the many coffee houses. There are also five guided walks which take the reader through various parts of the city and its history (watch out for walk five as there is a mistake in the description but the map is correct!!).
However, where this book is sadly lacking is in the identification of more modern entertainment venues. Whilst restaurants are detailed, bars and nightclubs are ignored leaving the visitor to either stumble across them or ask for recommendations.
Due to this serious omission I would not recommend this a complete guide to Budapest.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT!, 19 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Dublin (Paperback)
This is a hard to put down, fast moving and highly entertaining adventure story. It combines Dublin humour with Hollywood action. Thankfully it is fiction although, having been brought up in Dublin, I can well imagine some of the less salubrious characters existing in some shape or form!

4.0 out of 5 stars A real eye opener!, 25 Mar. 2002
This review is from: The Real Odessa (Hardcover)
How did so many WWII criminals make their way to South America? Who helped them and perhaps more importantly who turned a blind eye.
This book makes excellent use of detailed and in depth research to evidence the Peron and Papal involvement in the escape routes to Argentina.
An excellent read.
