Kingdom Of Shadows Summary


Kingdom Of Shadows by Alan Furst

A novel of adventure and intrigue in wartime Europe

Paris, 1938. Nicholas Morath, former Hungarian cavalry officer, returns home to his young mistress in the 7th arrondissement. He's been in Vienna where, amid the mobs screaming for Hitler, he's done a quiet favour for his uncle, Count Janos Polanyi. Polanyi is a diplomat and, desperate to stop his country's drift into alliance with Nazi Germany, he trades in conspiracy - with SS renegades, Abwehr officers, British spies and NKVD defectors, leading Morath deeper and deeper into danger as Europe edges towards war.

Kingdom Of Shadows Reviews


'Alan Furst's spy fiction is serious, even solemn: a good but never light read.' - Literary Review.

'Furst's tales...are infused with the melancholy romanticism of CASABLANCA, and also a touch of Arthur Koestler's Darkness at Noon.' - Scotsman

'Throughout, the author's delight in the process of espionage shines through.' - TLS
