Quotes & Awards

  • “A master of the historical spy novel, Furst scores again with…this excellent spy thriller is set in Paris, March to August 1941…A tense, well-crafted tale of courage, sacrifice, and wartime espionage. ”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Furst’s…mastery of both the era and his craft is so complete that the book proceeds with a nonchalant ease….The romantic heart of the book lies in the way it extols what, under the Occupation, remains of the sensual pleasures of life…This daydream of life under the Occupation is something rare: a suspense novel that offers the pleasures of relaxation.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Furst is recognized among the greatest contemporary spy novelists, and…this title retains the trademarks that bring fans back: realistic characters, meticulous historical knowledge, and superb storytelling.”

    Library Journal

  • “Narrator Daniel Gerroll’s strong, cultured British voice leads us through the newest of Furst’s richly atmospheric tales of occupied Europe during the Second World War…Gerroll’s pacing is excellent. His French pronunciation is faultless…Listening to the Night Soldiers series is always deeply satisfying as ordinary people fight the darkness.”
