Under Occupation, Alan Furst pulls readers into Paris in 1942. Protagonist Paul Ricard is a novelist and through him Furst takes us into many aspects of how the French resistance operated while under Nazi occupation. Ricard was swept into the resistance as were others. Once inside, his assignments provide the momentum for this novel. Readers can feel the darkness of that time and place through Furst’s finely written descriptive prose. Fans of historical fiction, especially when set in this time period, are those most likely to enjoy this novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Under Occupation from amazon.com.
