‘Imagine discovering an unscreened espionage thriller from the late 1930s, a classic black-and-white movie that captures the murky allegiances and moral ambiguity of Europe on the brink of war… Nothing can be like watching Casablanca for the first time, but Furst comes closer than anyone has in years.’
‘The time-frame of the late 1930s on the continent was once the special property of Eric Ambler and Graham Greene: Furst has ventured into their fictional territory and brought out a story that is equally original and engaging.’
New York Times
‘Espionage oozing from every shadow – writing of a high calibre.’
'Outclasses any spy novel I have ever read' Richard Condon, author of The Manchurian Candidate
