The Joker has just been released from Arkham Asylum, and he wants his city back, no matter who stands in his way. The darkest most violent Joker story since “The Killing Joke,” I can’t recommend this book highly enough! It left me weeping in the moonlight.
From Alan Furst, the bestselling author who is often praised as the best spy novelist ever, comes a novel that's truly hard to put down. Mission to Paris includes beautifully drawn scenes of romance and intimacy, and the story is alive with extraordinary characters, including American actor Frederic Stal, traveling to Paris on a secret mission. But always at the center of the novel is the city itself, the heart and soul of Europe—its alleys and bistros, hotels grand and anonymous, and the Parisians, living every night as though it was their last. As always, Alan Furst brings to life both a dark time in history and the passion of the human hearts that fought to survive it.
