Robert Wilson, The Company of Strangers (Harvest, 2002).
Andrea Aspinall, a English mathematician and spy, meets Karl Voss, a double agent in the German Legation to Portugal, one of the few neutral countries in Europe throughout World War II. When they meet, the Allied landings in Normandy and Hitler’s atomic weapons programs are the backdrop. Their affair may be brief, but its effects last long into the Cold War, and after the collapse of the Berlin Wall. Wilson, an Englishman, lives in Lisbon. More of a spy novel that some of his earlier works.
