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.
