Declare by Tim Powers

dryadworks, January 1, 2010

Tim Powers is the master of alternate history based on actual events, combining such diverse elements as the Fisher King/King Arthur legends w/ the Turkish invasion of Austria and beer-making in Drawing of the Dark; to time travel, Albert Einstein and Charlie Chaplin in Three Days to Never.
In Declare, he manages to combine the WWII spy-game and Middle Eastern djinn in a completely plausible detective/spy story, once you accept his premise. Simply one of the best books I read last decade!
