Publisher's Summary

An underground newspaper reporter becomes the target of a European spy web in the looming shadow of World War II Paris in this heart-pounding thriller from the master of international intrigue, Alan Furst.
Paris, 1938: a sensational story hits the tabloids: a murder/suicide in a lovers' hotel of an Italian political emigre and the wife of a prominent French politician. The assassination soon emerges as the work of Mussolini's secret police; the male victim was the editor of a clandestine newspaper that opposed Italian fascism. This is the story of Carlo, the man who replaces the victim as editor of the newspaper - the man who becoms the next target for Mussolini's police, Stalin's propaganda apparatus, the M16 and of the Gestapo, even as the war grows closer every day.

Foreign Correspondent

I have read and enjoyed several of Alan Furst's books. I think he is one of the best writers in the WWII/spy genre. This is the first one that I have listened to and I found it slightly disappointing, particularly the ending - it just seemed to run out of steam. It left me feeling that a sequel is being planned.

Excellent picture of pre-war Europe

This is definitely one of the best of Furst's wartime thrillers - in fact it is set in 1938-39, Berlin and Paris, but involving Italian emigres. I have read about 4; they are all very good, but this was the most interesting I think.

George Guidall does a great job of reading - the other ones I had to read all by myself!!
