A splendid book,

This review is from: The Spies Of Warsaw (Hardcover)
This is a new writer for me, but to judge by this book, one I shall seek out in the future. Set around the beginning of the Second World War it has some of the flavour of John Le Carre novels with clandestine meetings, possible double-agents and a feeling of tension over who are the goodies and who the baddies. The uncertainty keeps one reading to the very end of the book. I found this writer easier to follow than the complexities of Le Carre's novels. Furst is very adept at painting word pictures of his characters which helped me imagine them and so clearly differentiate among them. It's not all spies though, there is some relief from their murky world in the interludes about the affair between the 'hero' and his new love.
