Looked forward to reading my first Alan Furst was rather disappointed. Found the plot line baffling at times and paragraph construction I could not understand. Some of the background atmosphere was handled well. Has been compared to Robert Harris sorry not in the same league.
I like all of Alan Furstt's books. Tthe story took place during war time, and was about a particular vessel during its various voyages , which I found at times a bit slow. However the people in it were interesting. I quite liked it.
