The latest novel from New York Times bestselling author and the 'modern-day master of the genre' (Newsday), Alan Furst.

From the New York Times bestselling author and the acclaimed 'grandmaster' of espionage (Boston Globe) comes the taut, suspenseful story, set in Paris and Spain, of a man caught in the turmoil of the Spanish Civil War, and an operation that—with the help of FDR's secret operatives—will determine Europe's fate in the coming world war.

New York City, autumn 1938. Gregorio D'Alba, a minor noble descended from the Spanish Bourbons, is awaiting passage on a freighter to Paris after a failed attempt to convince American oil companies to support the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War. In Paris, surrounded by shifting political allegiances and prying spy services, D'Alba does whatever he can to support the Spanish Republic--smuggling, gathering intelligence, running arms. But the stakes quickly escalate when D'Alba, along with the British and the Americans, undertakes a mission to infiltrate the highest levels of the Spanish government, and to determine the alliances of his country and forever alter the course of the coming world war.

With his signature gripping, heart-pounding story, Alan Furst's new novel confirms his status as 'the most talented espionage novelist of our generation' (Vince Flynn).

Alan Furst never seems to deliver anything less than another five-star reading experience and this story no exception. The Spanish Civil War a very interesting backdrop against which to tell the tale of the Paris attorney caught up in the tension and tyranny of pre-war Europe with stops in Danzig, Warsaw, Prague as a bonus. I thought the narrator did an excellent job of navigating the action and cast of characters and hoping for yet another installment soon. My only pause is with the rather abrupt ending, but forgiven given the pace and swirl of action in the previous pages.
