really liked it
bookshelves: historical, suspense
Read in July, 2008

This was my first Furst novel, but it probably won't be my last. I enjoyed the characterization of Mercier, the military attache (spy) who conducts surveillance for the French in Poland prior to WWII. He was neither too "gung-ho" nor too jaded, which I found appealing in a protagonist. The novel is actually four intertwined episodes, each with its own crisis and resolution, which I had not expected, but was pleased with at the end. Overall, a satisfying read.
