really liked it
bookshelves: espionage

First starts at the beginning, the recruitment of a regular Russian spy. Then the rise and eventually the fall from grace as leadership changes. Our spy, Khristo, flees to occupied Paris. Did I forget to mention this was the thirties. In Paris every other person was probably a spy of some sort.

Anyway our guy is a survivor, at his core, just trying to live a life which is not going to be possible, with the war and all.

Like a film noir, this book is infused with atmosphere and beautifully detailed. The NYT described it as "grown up writing and characters that matter".
