“Blood of Victory”

Alan Furst

I love the murky spy world that Alan Furst has created.  In this novel, set in 1940, an émigré Russian writer becomes part of a plot to disrupt the transport of Romanian oil to the Nazis.  It takes place in Istanbul, Izmir, Bucharest, Belgrade, Paris, and many other locations, all of which are nicely drawn by Furst, and features an interesting set of characters, some of which have appeared in his previous books.
