Night Soldiers: Alan Furst

Furst’s first. Novel that is. I’m on a debut novel binge, this one quite old.

It’s overly long, many more connecting threads are needed to make it make sense, but the seeds of his future work are all here.

Good read.


Kingdom of Shadows, Alan Furst

Furst redefines the spy genre, relying not on frenetic plot or superhero protagonists, but subtle mood, atmosphere, and small vignettes showing average people from minor countries trying to counter 1940s’ Nazi totalitarianism overtaking Europe.
