Alan Furst’s books are addictive-if you like one, you have to read them all. -Mark Horowitz, New York . As Furst details Morath’s emotional and political vertigo, Kingdom of Shadows is undeniably intelligent and harrowing. -Mark Horowitz, New York magazine. With Kingdom of Shadows, Furst has firmly ensconced himself in the upper echelon of writers of literate historical fiction. A Furst novel, as this one shows in spades, is one that should be savored, never hurried.

1983) A novel by Alan Furst. In June of 1977 the CIA dismissed 820 Clandestine Service officers in a single day - this is the factual basis for 'Shadow Trade', one of the most sophisticated and detailed treatments of that covert community ever realized in American fiction. It is a novel about the reality of contemporary intelligence: computers, mail drops, anonymous fund transfers, honey traps, and, first and foremost, duplicity - the ability to falsify endlessly, allowing operatives to move so far into the shadows that they disappear.

Xinetan
Not as opulent in detail or character development as some of Mr. Furst's later novels, but his writing in this earlier work is compact and enjoyable.

I finally found a copy......
A very good read that builds slowly without dramatic explosions of mayhem and violence.
It is a very close parallel and a very intelligent insight into the existing world of corporate intelligence and espionage that is a multi-million dollar industry today in 2014. The characters are very skillfully drawn and very real.
I recommend it to any fan of Alan Furst work.
