Early yesterday, I finished reading Alan Furst's novel, Mission to Paris. I've read pretty much all of his works; these are sagas about Europe before WWII, for the most part, and deal with folks who get embroiled in the secret battles that led up to the war. He does a wonderful job setting the tone; gray, grim, fearful, with a deep feeling of inevitability. I'd recommend any of the books. In this specific one, an actor, Austrian-born, but years in Hollywood, is sent by the studios to make a film in Paris and other sites, and it deals with all the machinations that he encounters. Good book.
