A Hero of France Cover Image
ISBN: 9780812996494
Availability: Special Order
Published: Random House - May 31st, 2016

The author is a master of creating spy novels set just before World War II, but his latest takes place in 1941 in occupied Paris and the surrounding countryside. Mathieu and his French Resistance group (several characters from previous novels appear) help British pilots who, returning from bombing Germany, have crashed in France. Furst is a brilliant chronicler of suspense and intrigue.The scenes where Mathieu and his group, always looking out for Germans and French collaborators, secure documents and train passage from France for the pilots, are nail biting. A terrific and entertaining read. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Knight
