Alan Furst’s A HERO OF FRANCE is featured in this week’s giveaway

This week, we are offering up a novel set a long time ago (Ok, not THAT long ago, but still long), far away (France) as  Crimespree magazine, in conjunction with Friday Reads Facebook page, is offering you a chance to win a copy of A HERO OF FRANCE by Alan Furst


Paris 1941. Heroes and heroines in the French underground Resistance, fighting back against the occupying Nazi forces. From “the most talented espionage novelist of our generation” (Vince Flynn).

Alan Furst goes to war: Occupied Paris for the first time since Red Gold (1999 pub), Furst has set this novel during the war itself, instead of on the eve of the war.

Members of the French Resistance network—young and old, aristocrats and schoolteachers, defiant heroes and ordinary people—all engaged in clandestine actions in the cause of freedom.

From the secret hotels and Nazi-infested nightclubs of Paris to the villages of Rouen and Orleans.

An action-packed story of romance, intrigue, spies, bravery, and air battles.
