Alan Furst's new novel brings alive one of the lesser known locales of the Second World War: Hungary, which managed against all odds to preserve its neutrality until 1944, after which it paid a terrible price for those uneasy years of peace. The novel's canvas ranges from Paris in the west to Russia in the east, and confirms Furst's standing as the leading contemporary novelist of espionage and war. 'Furst's ability to recreate the terrors of espionage is matchless' -- Robert Harris 'Nothing can be like watching Casablanca for the first time, but Furst comes closer than anyone has in years' -- Time

A living legend
No body on earth has the ability to transport your thoughts back to the era of World War II like Alan Furst. A master craftsman with a sublime skill. Those who miss his books really really are missing the opportunity to experience what I termed as a masterpiece of literature writer alive. In his genre, Alan Furst has no peers!
