Not his best, but a good read.
If you have not read Furst's previous books, especially The Polish Officer, The World at Night, Red Gold and Kingdom of Shadows you probably will not care much for The Foreign Correspondant. Why? Because The Foregign Correspondant revists the lives of many of the characters who appeared in those stories, albiet in brief snippits. I suspect this is why, in part, many readers did not like this story. Granted, the storyline is short on action. However, I enjoyed the dialogue between the characters. I also enjoyed learning more about the characters lives that Furst introduced in his previous stories. I also found the story suspenseful. Furst's talent, in my opinion, lies in his ability to transport the reader back in time. He excells at creating atmosphere and mood. Reading his stories, I always feel like a voyeur, getting brief glimpses into the lives of other interesting people.
