Description
Salonika, 1940. Amid the bustle of tavernas and the smell of hashish, a secret war is taking shape. British "travel writers" trickle through the port, envelopes change hands in the backrooms of barbers, and in the Club de Salonique the air is thick with whispers. Costa Zannis is the city's dashing chief detective—a man with high and low contacts in the Balkans and beyond—and he has returned from fighting Italians in Macedonia to a city holding its breath. Mussolini's forces have retreated, but German sights are fixed firmly on the region, and Zannis becomes involved in an audacious plot to smuggle Jews to Istanbul through the back door of Europe. Alan Furst has often been compared to Graham Greene, Eric Ambler, and John le Carré, yet he makes the World War II European spy thriller a world of his own. "Furst's writing has the seductive shimmer of an urbane black-and-white Hollywood classic," assays the New York Times, echoing many who find a cinematic quality in these sharply drawn stories.
