Published just a year after his previous work, it seems like a brutally edited film. Furst's rich, dark prose is wonderfully intoxicating. But scenes cut from one to the next, jumping in time and place with zero transition, almost as though there wasn't time to waste on the interim. Still, the plot and the characters absorb and the read is satisfying, wistfully over too soon.

Didn't hit me as hard as Night Soldiers. Many subplots, a tiny bit difficult to follow, but not bad. Good use of suggestion. Interesting to have a fatalist in Paris - of course the period would have lent itself to that. As always, Furst's infusion of history makes the story a legitimate learning experience as well as an adventure.

fascinating romantic story of prewar bordercrossings by night. if you have lived yourself through those days, you are amazed at the authenticity of the many details, long forgotten, but brought back -heaven knows how- by the author.

For those that like exciting spy novels similar to those of Eric Ambler, and in atmosphere similar to the movie Casablance, I highly recommend this novel. The worldwise hero, somewhat cynical, but in the end heroic, honorable and brave - a great character protrayal by Mr. Furst. I plan to read the rest of this series.

Has an casablanca atmosphere with underplayed sense of danger.
