Another excellent book from Alan Furst.
Set, as usual in the complex world of plots and intrigue just before and during the Second World War. Great description of Paris and good characters as ever.
Furst's books open up a fascinating glimpse of pre war Europe, a lost world of countries, factions and politics whch have long ceased to exist, but gave rise to our modern world.
There's a certain similarity between some of the books - middle aged protagonist, doomed love affairs, lot of action in Paris and eastern Europe, impending Nazi/Soviet threat - but that's not a criticism, he does it very well and makes you want to know more about those countries (Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria etc.) in that era.
Good complex, subtle, thoughtful plots, with plenty of action. I also like the way certain characters from the other books crop up from time to time, viewed in a new perspective.
