I was excited when I read with whom Alan Furst is so often compared (e.g. John LeCarre) and I thought a taste of that in an earlier, WWII era would be an engaging and satisfying read, especially on the tail of Anthony Doer's "All the Light We Cannot See." "Mission to Paris" was engaging enough, but not entirely satisfying, and now I'm mystified by the comparison to LeCarre. I wish I'd read some of the more skeptical reviews before I sprang for this one. It's merely OK; not great nor entirely memorable. I had to refresh my memory about it when Amazon prompted me to review it. It didn't leave much of footprint in pantheon of "good" reads.

In late 1938 France is worried about the Nazis and Chamberlain's infamous Munich deal with Hitler is about to happen. Paris is a hotbed of Nazi intrigue as the Germans try to soften up the country to destabilise the government and slow the building of the Maginot Line.

It is around this background that Alan Furst sets this fascinating and imaginative espionage thriller where Hollywood star Fredric Stahl is sent by studio boss Jack Warner to make a film in Paris about soldiers from 3 countries at the end of WWI. Stahl was born in Austria but left for Hollywood several years ago and has little interest in going back to his country of birth which has recently been annexed by Germany.

Without his knowledge, Ribbentrop's Foreign Ministry has plans to use Stahl for propaganda and invites him to Berlin to judge a festival of mountain based propaganda films. Stahl is reluctant to go but is put under pressure by the Germans, especially with threats to Stahl's parents who still live in Austria. After an almost clandestine meeting with a senior US Embassy official, he is persuaded not only to go to Berlin but also to meet with Olga Orlova. a Russian émigré living in Berlin who is working for the Americans.

The descriptions of Paris at that time, especially the people that he meets and works with are interestingly authentic. The descriptions of Berlin and the people he meets are chilling. He arrives on the night of November 9, 1938 "Kristallnacht" which heralded the start of the German offensive against the Jews, with 30,000 German Jewish men being arrested and sent to concentration camps and Jewish property and businesses smashed across the city.

Initially, Stahl is an innocent bystander but gradually gets drawn into the conflict as the Germans turn up the heat and he becomes emotionally involved in what is happening to Germany. Furst creates Stahl as an ordinary but caring person, who is thrown into something that is well out of his depth but who finds the ability to protect himself while protecting others.

This is an excellent and imaginative WWII espionage thriller that kept me absorbed. I will certainly look out for other books in this series.

Mission to Paris is the first novel in the night soldiers book series. The storyline was quite believable- an American movie star of Austrian dissent goes to Paris sent by the Warner Bros. film company to do a film in 1939. The great part about this novel is that you get a real sense of what Paris was like just a few months before Hitler invaded France. The mood in Paris was one of denial-even though war was in the air and inevitable with Hitler and control. Moreover, the Nazis had a very strong fifth column in France working to undermine the legitimate, democratic government. The novel reveals the extent of the Nazi spy networks and the lengths they would go to to satisfy their masters in Berlin. This is a great read with many parallels to what is going on in America today.

I have become a huge fan of Alan Furst. He is an excellent writer. I have always taken an interest in books on World War II. His research and command of the facts is without question extremely accurate and compelling. I just ordered 2 more of his books. Mission to Paris is one of my all time favorites of a number of his books I have read so far. Best in the business.

Furst does a great job of weaving a bit of pre-WWII European history into this fast paced suspense and intrigue filled thriller. I rarely find books that I have trouble putting down after I begin reading them each evening, and this was certainly one of them. The primary character is an American film star who is filming a new movie in Paris who unwillingly gets caught up in the drama unfolding with impending war. The Nazis want him for Goebbel's propaganda campaign and the French and particularly the Americans want him to supply information that would help turn public opinion at home against the Nazis and assistance to the allies. I won't go to much further or I'd spoil the plot, but suffice it to say, our movie star jumps in with both feet becoming somewhat of a double agent. Also, for anyone who has been to Paris or wants to go, Furst does a great job in describing the neighborhoods, scenes along the Seine, the many cafes and attractions that will make you feel you are right there in Paris.

A thoroughly enjoyable and educational read - a rare combo.

Maybe not my favorite Alan Furst novel, but better than most anything else. This time, an innocent Hollywood actor get caught up in the pre-Nazi Paris (not pre-Nazi enough, though), and you're off on another furst adventure in that treacherous, innocent but diabolical period with black and white heroes/heroines who are either good or bad guys, with a few grey thrown in for good measure. Any time I'm tired of Pablum writing, I turn to Furst or LeCarre, whether new to me or re-reading, doesn't matter. The writing is so marvelous, they could be reciting the ABC's and it would be great reading.
