Autumn 1937. War is coming to Europe. French and German intelligence
operatives are locked in a life-and-death struggle on the espionage
battlefield. At the French embassy, the new military attaché, Colonel
Jean-François Mercier, a decorated hero of the 1914 war, is drawn into a world
of abduction, betrayal, and intrigue in the diplomatic salons and back alleys
of Warsaw. At the same time, the handsome aristocrat finds himself in a
passionate love affair with a Parisian woman of Polish heritage, a lawyer for
the League of Nations.
Colonel Mercier must work in the shadows amid an extraordinary cast of
venal and dangerous characters—Colonel Anton Vyborg of Polish military
intelligence; the mysterious and sophisticated Dr. Lapp, senior German Abwehr officer
in Warsaw; Malka and Viktor Rozen, at work for the Russian secret service; and
Mercier’s brutal and vindictive opponent, Major August Voss of SS
counterintelligence. And there are many more, some known to Mercier as spies,
some never to be revealed.
The Spies of Warsaw is Furst’s
finest novel to date—exciting, atmospheric, erotic, and impossible to put down.
