Bulgaria, 1934. A young man is murdered by the local fascists. His brother, Khristo Stoianev, is recruited into the NKVD, the Soviet secret intelligence service, and sent to Spain to serve in its civil war. Warned that he is about to become a victim of Stalin's purges, Khristo flees to Paris. Night Soldiers masterfully re-creates the European world of 1934-45: the struggle between Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia for Eastern Europe, the last desperate gaiety of the beau monde in 1937 Paris, and guerrilla operations with the French underground in 1944. Night Soldiers is a scrupulously researched panoramic novel, a work on a grand scale

Professional reviews

"By resurrecting this author's first WWII thriller, Recorded Books demonstrates its adeptness at matching complementary talents. Furst recreates the Europe of 1934-45 through the eyes of Bulgarian Khristo Stoianev, who is recruited into the Soviet Union's intelligence agency, the NKVD, after his brother is murdered by local fascists. From Bulgaria to Spain, then France, listeners follow Khristo as he struggles to please his masters and stay alive as Nazi Germany and Stalin's Russia struggle for control of Eastern Europe. The author's attention to detail, thumbnail sketches of his characters, and intricate plotting are painstakingly handled by George Guidall in a deliberate and methodical manner. No hurry here. Guidall develops every nuance intended by the writer. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
