From the undisputed master of historical espionage, a story of courage, love and treachery during the French Resistance.'Furst's ability to recreate the terrors of espionage is matchless' Robert Harris'If you are a John le Carre fan, this is definitely a novel for you' James Patterson on Mission to Paris'As delicately crafted as John le Carre at the height of his George Smiley years' Daily Mail on Spies of the BalkansSpring, 1941. Britain is losing the war. Paris is occupied by the Nazis, dark and silent at night. But when the clouds part, and moonlight floods the city, a Resistance leader called Mathieu steps out to begin his work. The fighters of the French Resistance are determined not to give up. These courageous men and women - young and old, aristocrats and nightclub owners, teachers and students - help downed British airmen reach the border with Spain. In farmhouses and rural churches, in secret hotels, and on the streets, they risk everything to open Europe's sealed doors and lead Allied fighters to freedom. But as the military police heightens surveillance, Mathieu and his team face a new threat, dispatched from the Reich to destroy them all.

Reviews

More tales of derring-do against the Nazis from the excellent Furst * THE SUN * Eloquently told, with Furst's customary mastery of both atmosphere and character - not to mention his delicate touch with tension - it is confirmation he is a writer without peer in the recreation of wartime espionage. * DAILY MAIL * When the theme is espionage during the dark days of wartime Europe, Alan Furst is one of its elite novelists. * THE TIMES * a more more-ish read than the vast majority of more meaty, formula-driven thrillers * SUNDAY TIMES * Once again, Furst succeeds in turning human history into tense, humane - and in parts surprisingly sexy - drama * MAIL ON SUNDAY *
