Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reissued with a new jacket.

Review:

"Furst's ability to recreate the terrors of espionage is matchless." Robert Harris, Daily Mail

Review:

"Ideally complex, intelligent, hugely intriguing — in the world of the espionage thriller Alan Furst is in a class of his own." -- William Boyd

Review:

"Charges along from the rise of Fascism in Bulgaria, to Spain during the Civil War, to France and back to Eastern Europe. The history is deftly incorporated; the viewpoint civilized; the characters and the settings picturesque; the adventures exciting; the writing pungent." — Walter Goodman, The New York Times

Review:

"Night Soldiers has everything the best thrillers offer — excitement, intrigue, romance — plus grown-up writing, characters that matter, and a crisp, carefully researched portrait of the period in which our own postwar world was shaped." — Geoffrey C. Ward, USA Today

Review:

"Extraordinary historical authenticity... If you enjoy your excitement bound in with history and your characters lit with the glare and significance that war lends, you have a lot of reading to do." — Julian Evans, Punch

Synopsis:

In Bulgaria in 1934 young Khristo Stoianev sees his brother kicked to death by a gang of strutting thugs. Recognizing the growing menace of Fascism, he takes a risk on the promise of Communism and flees to Moscow, where he is trained as an agent of the NKVD, precursor of the KGB. His first mission is to Catalonia, where he is soon caught up in the bloody horrors of the Spanish Civil War. Then he learns that he is about to become the victim of one of Stalin's purges, and is forced to flee once again... this time to Paris.

Synopsis:

Night Soldiers is the first of Alan Furst's highly acclaimed novels recreating the atmosphere and tension of the worlds of espionage and resistance in Europe in the 1930s and World War II.

Synopsis:

The soldiers of the night were a secret brotherhood: Khristo, a Bulgarian peasant; Voluta, a Pole; Kulic, a Yugoslav; the clever Sascha Vonets; and Goldman, a Rumanian Jew. The novel describes the complex and violent way of life of a spy and is set in Russia, 1934-45.
