Product Description


a tense and evocative spy thriller...brings a period of history vividly to life (ILFORD RECORDER)

Book Description

From the master of the historical spy thriller, a story set in the heart of the Polish resistance

From the Back Cover

In 1939, as the German army ravages his country, Captain Alexander de Milja enlists in the newly formed Polish underground and undertakes the first of many daring acts of defiance and disruption: transporting Poland's gold reserves to safety hidden on board a refugee train. As the war continues, duty takes him from Warsaw to Paris and the frozen Ukraine – enduring a life of dark shadows and perpetual deception, always on the run, always just one step ahead of death.

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 'Night Soldiers, Dark star' and 'The World at Night.'

"Brilliant…you can almost hear the chained wheels of the Gestapo car on the snow, the whack of bullets in the moonlit Polish forests, the quietness of occupied Paris by night."
JOHN SWEENEY, 'Observer'

"Excellent…beautifully written, intensely atmospheric and dramatically convincing. 'The Polish Officer' is a work of quiet subtlety that will niggle in the memory far longer than most novels of espionage."
MARCEL BERLINS, 'Sunday Times'

"His finest achievement yet: a subtle work of great quality and imaginative reach. He brings alive a little-known time and place of war, a tapestry set out in threads of people scurrying through moonlit cobblestoned streets."

"My discovery of the year."

"Surely among the most convincing war books of our time."
NICHOLAS BAGNALL, 'Sunday Telegraph'
