More Spy Stuff

Coles, Manning. A Toast to Tomorrow (Rue Morgue). My all time favorite spy novel, the story of a man who wakes to his true identity one day in Nazi Berlin where he is the Chief of Police. Funny, totally authentic, written close to the war.

Furst, Alan. The Spies of Warsaw (Random). Shifting his focus to 1937 Poland, and envisioning 20 spies at work in Warsaw, Furst continues his epic evocation of a Europe hurtling towards war, confused loyalties, self-interest at war with idealism, minor and major sins, wrenching love stories.
