Praise For…

"Furst’s writing has the seductive shimmer of an urbane black-and-white Hollywood classic."
--The New York Times

"Astonishingly, Alan Furst is not yet a household name. But perhaps [Kingdom of Shadows,] the sixth of his supple, elegant European spy novels, will do the trick."
--Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"Subtly spun, sensitive to nuances, generous with contemporary detail and information discreetly conveyed....It’s hard to overestimate Kingdom of Shadows."
--Eugen Weber, Los Angeles Times

"A triumph: evocative, heartfelt, knowing and witty."
--Robert J. Hughes, The Wall Street Journal
