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.

    " Historically very well written. It did not possess the tension that most spy novels have. This was rather flat. "

    " Eh... I liked it well enough. Just a fun, no-frills WWII spy novel. "

    " Second book by this author I have read and enjoyed it a little more, a solid 3 star pushing 4 star rating. The quality of the writing is good, and I really like the imagery he conveys in this book, I felt liek I could clearly imagine what these characters looked like, the clothes they wore, the scenes in the cocktail parties, the hushed whispers to the German and Polish accents, all quite clear. The plots are not horribly complex but there is enough tension and interest to keep the pages turning. If you are interested in pre-WWII Europe and spy novels this is a fun read. "
