Set in the years from 1937 to 1939, these novels paint an unforgettable portrait of a continent on the precipice of war. In THE POLISH OFFICER, Captain Alexander de Milja will become a spymaster in the anti-Nazi underground, posing as a poet, coal merchant and fascist sympathiser. In KINGDOM OF SHADOWS, a Hungarian cavalry officer will trade conspiracies with British spies and SS renegades on the orders of his uncle, a mysterious Count. And in DARK STAR, Andre Szara - a Pravda journalist and survivor of the Polish pogroms - quickly finds himself out of his depth after being sent to retrieve a battered briefcase. Suffused with romance, period detail and haunting tension, these novels show Furst at his inimitable best.
