This is a great novel of spies and espionage in Warsaw just before the start of World War II. With Furst doing what he does best there is plenty of action, betrayal and intrigue along with the inevitable romance thrown in to the mix too. A gripping and suspense-filled story that has now been made into a TV mini-series starring David Tennant and Janet Montgomery.
The Spies of Warsaw by Alan Furst
On a cool October evening in 1937, German engineer and secret agent Herr Edvard Uhl arrives in Warsaw. He suppresses a chill of fear. Tonight, he will be with his mistress; tomorrow, he will be at a bar, where he will meet with a French military attache. Information will be exchanged for money. War is coming to Europe. And although bombs and bullets have yet to fly, French and German operatives are already caught in a deadly espionage battle. In a war of intelligence and subterfuge, no spy can help being drawn into the murky world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue.
ReviewsFurst is a former journalist whose books are intelligent, realistic and full of historical knowledge and understanding. They have plenty of sex, steam trains and drama, too -- Peter Hitchens MAIL ON SUNDAY Furst writes mordantly and precisely about the drabness and the excitement of spying and the book slowly draws you into his finely drawn world CATHOLIC HERALD
