Product Description

Review

‘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.’
USA Today

‘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.’
Washington Post

From the Back Cover

In Bulgaria in 1934 young Khristo Stoianev sees his brother kicked to death by a gang of strutting thugs. Recognising the growing menace of Fascism, he takes a risk on the promise of Communism and flees to Moscow, where he is trained as an agent of the NKVD, precursor of the KGB. His first mission is to Catalonia, where he is soon caught up in the bloody horrors of the Spanish Civil War. Then he learns that he is about to become the victim of one of Stalin's purges, and is forced to flee once again…this time to Paris.

Alan Furst's highly acclaimed novels recreating the atmosphere and tension of the worlds of espionage and resistance in Europe in the 1930s and World War II include 'Dark Star, The Polish Officer' and 'The World at Night.'

"Ideally complex, intelligent, hugely intriguing – in the world of the espionage thriller Alan Furst is in a class of his own."
WILLIAM BOYD

GEOFFREY C. WARD, 'USA Today'

"Extraordinary historical authenticity…If you enjoy your excitement bound in with history and your characters lit with the glare and significance that war lends, you have a lot of reading to do."
JULIAN EVANS, 'Punch'

"Furst's ability to recreate the terrors of espionage is matchless."
ROBERT HARRIS, 'Daily Mail'
