Book II, p. 46, box, under AS A PREQUEL: "As a final option, instead of presented this scenario during the 1923 campaign, it can be run as a prequel" should be "... instead of presenting ..."

Book II, p. 52, under SMITH'S STORY: "The police went to Smith's home and escorted him here, but they discount the neighbors talk as nonsense" should be "... they discount the neighbors' talk as nonsense".

Book II, p. 55: "If anyone is afraid for Smith taking the Fez home alone, he will readily agree, with some relief, to have them stay over in his home in St. Johns Wood" should be "... St. John's Wood".

Book II, p. 62: "They make a pleasant journey out of the city and through the countryside via Kent to Dover ..." Dover is a town located in the county of Kent, so you can't really go to Dover via Kent (in much the same way as saying you're travelling to Hayward via California would be kind of nonsensical). Instead, this should be "They make a pleasant journey out of the city and through the countryside of Kent to Dover ..."

Book II, p.64: "Aileen is also interested in the lot of women here" should be "Aileen is also interested in the lot of women there", as the investigators encounter Aileen before any of them have reached Turkey.

Book II, p.70, under AFTERNOON: MRS. AND MR. MYERS: "Menkaph has told her it is a hysterical reaction because her husband is such a sensitive subject, but she believes that some other, darker purpose is going on." This sentence doesn't sound right. Do purposes 'go on'? I would suggest something like "... she believes there is some other, darker reason for it".

Under VIENNA, 5:50 PM: "The train arrives in Vienna late that afternoon at 5:50 P.M. the investigators are to meet Baron von Hofler, Smith's friend and their patron." This should be two sentences, with "the" capitalised.

Book II, p. 74: "... it has lost 40% of its size through conquest by Russia in 1878 ..." should be "... it lost 40% of its size through conquest by Russia in 1878 ..."

Also on p. 74, under GUNS AND GOODS: "Groups who may cause trouble in this era are Armenian terrorists known as Dashnaks, protesting the Ottoman's cruelty to their people" should be "... protesting the Ottomans' cruelty to their people ..."
