Join New York Times bestselling author, Alan Furst, for a reading and signing of his new book, A Hero of France.
Paris, 1941. The City of Light, occupied by the Nazis, is dark and silent at night. Streetlamps are painted blue and apartment windows shuttered in the blackout ordered by the Germans. But when the clouds part, the moonlight defies authority, and so doesa leader of the French Resistance, known as Mathieu.
In Paris and the French countryside, small groups of ordinary men and women are determined to take down the occupying forces of Adolf Hitler. Mathieu leads one such Resistance cell. This suspenseful, fast-paced thriller by the author whom Vince Flynn calls“the most talented espionage novelist of our generation” captures this dangerous time as no one ever has before. Aiding Mathieu as part of his covert network are Lisette, a seventeen-year-old student and courier; Max de Lyon, an arms dealer turned nightclubowner; Chantal, a woman of class and confidence; Daniel, a Jewish teacher fueled by revenge; Joëlle, who falls in love with Mathieu; and Annemarie, a willful aristocrat with deep roots in France, and a desire to act.
As the German military police heighten surveillance, Mathieu and his team face a new threat, dispatched by the Reich to destroy them all.
Shot through with the author’s trademark fine writing, breathtaking suspense, and intense scenes of seduction and passion, Alan Furst’s A Hero of France is at once one of the finest novels written about the French Resistance and the most grippingnovel yet by the living master of the spy thriller.
