Literature can take us on journeys to distant lands and bridge the gap of cultural differences. Books allow us to live in other cultures, walk through vastly different landscapes, and experience other lands through their pages. Literature can help us understand our world. Sink into a comfy chair with a good book and concentrate on Eastern Europe.
Set in 1940, the action goes all over the place, from Paris to the Balkan states. Costa Zannis is a Greek detective charged with keeping his town, Salonika, running smoothly. A fix it man if you will. He has a life that suits him, a faithful dog, and family nearby. WWII turns his world, and most of the continent, upside down. When the Nazis invade Greece, Costa is off with the Army where he befriends Marko Pavlic, a cop from over the border in Zagreb. Soon enough that friendship becomes useful as Hitler implements his final solution. Furst keeps the action lively, the story moving, and has some interesting female characters too.
