‘Furst’s intelligent, ambitious, absorbing novel charges along from the rise of Fascism in Bulgaria, to Spain during the Civil War, to France and back to Eastern Europe as World War II draws to an end. The history is deftly incorporated; the viewpoint civilized; the characters and the settings picturesque; the adventures exciting; the writing pungent.’
New York Times
‘Night Soldiers has everything the best thrillers offer – excitement, intrigue, romance – plus grown-up writing, characters that matter, and a crisp, carefully researched portrait of the period in which our own postwar world was shaped.’
‘Exceptional. Best of all is the chilling trail of treachery and betrayal, as the Russian Revolution – in the guise of the NKVD – devours its adherents.’
'Ideally complex, intelligent, hugely intriguing; Furst is in a class of his own' William BoydSee all Product Description
