Kerri's book Pick of the Week is Alan Furst's "Mission to Paris." Minnesota bestselling writer Vince Flynn said Furst is "the most talented espionage novelist of our generation."
The Kirkus Review calls Furst's latest book "a historical spy novel that takes the reader back to the 1930s, when Europe hurtled toward the abyss" and that he evokes a sense that "no one is safe, but readers will care about all the characters, whether wanting them to survive or die. They all either live under the cloud of doom that gathers over Europe, or they are part of the cloud. Furst conveys a strong sense of the era, when responding to a knock might open the door to the end of one's days."
