Midnight in Europe : Book Review
I've been a fan of Alan Furst ever since receiving a copy of The Foreign Correspondent as a birthday present from my son. I wrote a review in The Buddha Diaries and, checking back in the archives, I see that it was in August, I've read a couple more since then, and have enjoyed them. Now I've just finished reading his latest, Midnight in Europe -- another birthday gift. War is at hand, inevitable. Every effort to forestall it, futile. This time it's the Spanish civil war that rages to the south, while most of the action takes place in Paris and points east.

Furst, who has by now approached that era and the dread preceding it from so many different cultural and geographical perspectives, remains at the top of his game. This is another fine addition to his elegant, gripping, interwoven set of novels that will someday form a kaleidoscopic map of European powers forced into desperate alliances as they fight for their lives. Furst has long since carved out this turf and made it his own. And he has managed to come up with a surprising number of variations on the same themes. And his global fame and Viennese origins make him so desirable as a spy that Stahl spends much of the book trying to avoid trouble.
