Name That Novel!
May 25, 2012 7:51 PM   Subscribe

I read a mystery around 1980 that I'd like to find again. Our hero, a professor on sabbatical, goes to Spain and meets an old college friend for dinner. The friend asks a favor along the lines of, "If anything happens to me, please bring this item to the American Embassy," or something like that. He hands something to our hero, and, of course, the friend is murdered before the meal is finished. Our hero is on the run. So, Mefites, any ideas?
