Espionage in 1940

by mizzy on Oct 24, 2009

Furst is a highly acclaimed writer of WWII spy fiction. His realistic settings, characters, and plots are far removed from the James Bond genre. In this story, a Russian emigre journalist, I.A. Serebin, is recruited to Istanbul by the British Secret Service, to stop Germany from importing Romanian oil. From Bucharest to Paris, Beirut and Belgrade Serebin sets up a diversion of oil barges going down river. Furst's world is a gray, lonely and dangerous one with great authenticity and historical accuracy. Things are not black and white, and moral ambiguities exist for those fighting fascism.


Victory well written

by CommodoreTVP on Apr 12, 2008

What a great series. I dont know which of Alan Furst's novels set in pre WWII Europe I liked most. One is better than the next. Whether set in Paris or Berlin or Budapest, the period background is perfect, the characters believable and the hero flawed but winning. I hope there will be more from this great story teller..
