A superb and chilling thriller,
This review is from: Night Soldiers (Paperback)
Furst is a master story-teller and he has an excellent ability to convey time, place and the political realities of the period.. wrong to say that Furst gets his history wrong about the POUM-- Furst makes at least two references its Trostkyist direction.
And even if inaccuracies do creep in, the overall impression is gripping. I have read four of his novels in the last two months, I just can't get enough.

Nick, Furst makes two references to the POUM's Trotskyist direction, but how many times does he refer to it as anarchist, which it clearly wasn't. It may be a good novel, but the research is lazy

What was it about, and what was good about it?
