Mission to ParisMission to Paris by Alan Furst
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Alan Furst once again delivers a truly fascinating spy novel. Set primarily in Paris, one can feel the tenseness in the air as the Nazis gain footing and power. While the novel started out slow, once the characters were introduced and built up a bit, Stahl finally accepts his role as a spy and the book finally gains momentum. Still though, many scenes read as undeveloped thoughts. Not the page turner I expected but as far as historical fiction, it was interesting.
