The book carries the reader from the streets of big city America to Paris, the Holy Lands, mythic Britain, the Basque country, modern London, and the primitive North American heartland. The feast of Hot Night in the City is both delicious and nourishing, both spicy and satisfying. Hot Night in the City is nothing less than a tour de force.AUTHORBIO: TREVANIAN is the best-selling author of The Main, The Eiger Sanction, The Summer of Katya, and Shibumi. His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages.END
