Publisher's Summary

The latest war novel from the New York Times best-selling author and "modern-day master of the genre" (New York Newsday) Alan Furst.
Alan Furst's latest novel takes place in the secret hotels, nightclubs, and cafes of occupied Paris and the villages of France during the spring of 1941, when Britain was losing the war. Many of the characters are resistance fighters who run an escape line for British airmen down to Spain; they include men and women, old and young, all strong - an aristocrat, a Jewish teacher - and the hero is a hero, has a gun, and uses it. Some of Furst's former characters - including S. Kolb the spy, and Max de Lyon, former arms dealer, now a nightclub owner - return.
A Hero of France is sure to please existing Furst fans and attract new ones.

Excellent thriller

Would you listen to A Hero of France again? Why?

I have - and probably shall again.Very good story - great narrator


What did you like best about this story?

The fact it all flowed effortlessly. While the characters were heroic, there was no grandstanding, and we were spared the usual Gestapo horror stories - by now we can all imagine what they were like.


What does Daniel Gerroll bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A very pleasant voice and excellent acting abilities - really brings the characters alive and helps you see how different they all are.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not particularly - enjoying it too much


Any additional comments?

What I'd describe as an understated thriller - typical of Alan Furst. It gives you a real insight into life in occupied France.
