A tale set in World War II Macedonia finds senior police official Costa Zannis working with a resistance cell and secret operatives from various European regions to organize an escape route from Berlin to neutral Turkey. By the author of
For the time being, Greek forces have managed to fend off Mussolini's army in its quest to infiltrate northern Greece, but ****** will not stand idly by as his fascist allies face defeat. In the port town of Salonika, citizens know what is inevitably coming, but life--with its quotidian tasks, love affairs, and family disputes--continues. Amidst this tension, police officer Costa Zannis joins forces with a disparate and loosely organized group of spies--some British, some Balkan, some Greek, and some Turkish--in order to secure a route of escape through Greece to Turkey. Alan Furst is a master of espionage fiction, and in SPIES OF THE BALKANS he pulls out all of the stops--top notch suspense, a perfectly complex snarl of characters driven by personal passions, and an immersive physical and historical setting.
