"Literate crime thrillers don't get much this." Publishers Weekly (starred) on L'Assassin

Peter Steiner has thoroughly impressed sophisticated thriller mavens everywhere with his critically acclaimed novels featuring ex-CIA operative Louis Morgon. Now, in what is indubitably Steiner's finest book to date, Louis attempts to solve a mystery with roots going back as far as World War II.

When Louis purchases a rundown house in Saint-Leon-sur-Deme, he quickly goes to work fixing it up. However, during the renovations, he discovers evidence of a long forgotten crime hidden beneath the floorboards. Unable to leave a good mystery unsolved, he enlists the help of his friend Renard, a French cop, and sets out to discover exactly what happened in this small French village during the Nazi occupation.

As Louis and Renard search for the answer to a decades-old question, they encounter an unforgettable cast of characters, including Simon, a Jew from Berlin who leads a French resistance cell, a Nazi colonel who is not at all what he seems, and Marie Piano, whose bravery is unmatched. Soon, Louis is pulled into the secrets and lies of the past as he begins to call into question the very nature of guilt and innocence in times of war.

Compelling, arresting, and complex, The Resistance is a thriller that will appeal to fans of John le Carre and Graham Greene.
