Hello everyone, my grandfather was telling me about a book he read when he was 17. The book was issued in 1946 and titled, Vospori Gaxnika, at least I think it's spelled like that. I don't know what Vospori means, but I do know that Gaxnika means The Secret of... I think Vospori is the name of a city or area... Could anyone please help me know where I can find this book. Or please tell me what Vospori is translated. Thank You.

That sounds like Bospori/Vospori Gaghtniqner@
I have known that book. For some reason, in my memory it was a mystery detective novel by Yerwand Odian/Yervant Odian. Yes, Odian is best known for his satire, he was also a prolific writer of serious subjects as well as his short stories and novels (Enver, Talaat yev Sherlock Holmes, a novel of mystery and intrigue).
However, all searches point to Morgenthauís the Secrets of the Bosphorus.
