'America's pre-eminent spy novelist' (NEW YORK TIMES) returns.
Alan Furst is widely recognised as the master of the historical spy novel. Now translated into eighteen languages, he is the author of thirteen novels including MISSION TO PARIS, SPIES OF THE BALKANS - a TV Book Club choice - THE SPIES OF WARSAW, which became a BBC mini-series starring David Tennant, and THE FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT. Born in New York, he lived for many years in Paris, and now lives on Long Island. www.alanfurst.net
Enthralling ...

Alan Furst's mastery of the espionage novel puts him beyond any would-be rival. No one does it better than Furst - LITERARY REVIEWRichly enjoyable - DAILY MAIL
