Three sets of characters in the Europe of 1950 act out this hair-raising story. First of all there are the Americans, all members of the staff of an English language Paris newspaper-from the veteran graduate of the city desk to the brash an idealistic green reporter. Then there are the Europeans-a cross-section of poor but proud ex-gentry, a former French Resistance underground worker, rascals, Dior fashion models. Finally there are the Russians with their scientifically calculated horrors to reduce men to animals.
