Spies of the Balkans by Alan Furst
Spies of the Balkans is set in Salonika, a port city in northern Greece in 1940. Costa Zannis is a police official who handles political cases. Salonika has a history of being the crossroads for many spies, and with the war inexorably moving toward Greece, the amount of espionage activity grows even more. When one of his lovers abruptly leaves, Zannis realizes she was a spy. Zannis would rather tend to his romances and his dog, but the war draws him into his own clandestine activities. Surprising himself, he becomes an important instrument in the safe passage of Jews from Nazi-controlled territory. Alan Furst's novel has received positive reviews with Bookpage saying, "He is one of the more likeable spy characters created by the talented Furst, and Spies of the Balkans is another fast-moving, nuanced novel that will keep you up at night."
