Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A lovely book. With Midnight in Europe, Alan Furst delivers an observant, sexy, and thrilling tale set in the outskirts of World War II…In Furst’s hands, Paris once again comes alive with intrigue. A dark time, yes, but also one that is endlessly compelling.” Erik Larson, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Through multiple novels, Furst has illuminated moments of reluctant courage and desperate love in a world teetering on the edge of destruction. He does so again here, and, as always, he does it exquisitely…Furst is a master of mood, but, above all, he is able to show how the most personal of emotions—love, especially—drives the actions of men and women caught in a time of peril.” Booklist (starred review)
“Another tense drama of pre–World War II Europe from a master of the period…Furst owns the dark blanket that covers Europe between the two world wars. His latest is a satisfying, thought-provoking read.” Kirkus Reviews
