In this sequel to the acclaimed The World at Night, reluctant spy Jean Casson returns in another haunting and atmospheric thriller set in the shadows of occupied Paris. In The World at Night, Alan Furst introduced film producer Jean Casson, who is forced by the German occupation of Paris to abandon his civilised lifestyle and falls into the world of espionage and double agents -- until he is forced to flee the country. In Red Gold, Jean Casson returns to Paris under a new identity. As a fugitive from the Gestapo, he must somehow struggle to survive in the shadows and backstreets. He is determined to stay clear of trouble, yet, as the war drags on, Casson begins, inevitably, to drift back into the dangerous world of resistance and sabotage.

"It is 1941 in occupied France, and our protagonist, a well-known French film producer, is wanted by the Gestapo. Constantly on the run, he is protected by a Communist resistance group, for whom he agrees to work. George Guidall, who has narrated all of Furst's moody, atmospheric novels, is an expert interpreter of his many characters. He handles the French language and a variety of European accents exceedingly well. And, as always, he makes women's voices feminine without resorting to a high-pitched whisper. In any conversation, you always know which character is speaking. But Guidall's mastery goes beyond this. When our protagonist is shivering under a thin blanket in a seedy hotel, we feel the bone-chilling cold. R.E.K. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
