Quotes & Awards

  • “The novel’s most attractive feature is its matter-of-fact suspense: Furst vigilantly restricts Nicholas’ perspective, refusing to allow him anachronistic insight into the history being made around him, and this strategy helps reinvigorate one of the century’s frequently told stories.” 

    New Yorker

  • “This is Furst’s best book since The Polish Officer, and in it he proves himself once again a master of literary espionage.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Furst has fashioned here an elegant gem that vividly portrays the city of Paris during the last peaceful days of 1938 and the menace of Hitler’s ambitions in the Sudetenland and beyond.” 

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Portrays what is perhaps the twentieth-century’s most terrifying yet perversely romantic period without letting the romance turn the terror into sentimental goo.”
