Book Description Odessa -- city of Jewish gangsters, birthplace of Trotsky and ace spy Sidney Reilly, a mixture of chicken markets and Palladian architecture. The story begins on a Black Sea freighter in the winter of 1940. A.A. Serebin, poet and journalist, is on his way to Istanbul to effect the release of a former lover. The novel brings Serebin and his protector, police officer Ascher Levitch, into contact with a foreign espionage network centred in the Russian emigre communities of Paris, Berlin and Belgrade, as well as in Odessa itself. BLOOD OF VICTORY is a panoramic novel, moving between Istanbul, Bucharest, Paris, Sofia and the Black Sea coast, involving Turkish secret police, Russian chekhists, French aristocrats, Roumanian millionaires, Polish exiles and British spies. In 1939, with the approach of war in Europe, the British secret services tried to impede the exportation of roumanian oil to Germany. They failed. Then, in the fall of 1940, they tried again. Furst is without peer in his ability to recreate the atmosphere of the period, to dramatize the complex, shifting political strategies of the time, and to create superb novels which are also engrossing spy thrillers. Oil, the blood of the earth, has become, in time of war, the blood of victory" - these words, spoken at a conference on oil in 1918, would prove prophetic. In 1939, with war imminent, the British secret services tried to impede the flow of oil to Germany. It is Alan Furst at his uniquely brilliant best. 'Furst's ability to recreate the terrors of espionage is matchless' -- Robert Harris 'Nothing can be like watching CASABLANCA for the first time, but Furst comes closer than anyone has in years' -- Time About the Author Alan Furst has lived for long periods in France, especially in Paris, and has travelled as a journalist in Eastern Europe and Russia. He has written extensively for Esquire and the International Herald Tribune. The author's seventh espionage thriller, 'in which world he is in a class of his own' (William Boyd). In a cover blurb, William Boyd says "Ideally complex, intelligent, hugely intriguing - in the world of the espionage thriller Alan Furst is in a class of his own." Hugely acclaimed in a front page feature in the NY Times Book Review. Book Condition:
