The Spies of Warsaw by Alan Furst

At the center of The Spies of Warsaw is Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier who has been assigned to be the new military attache at the French embassy in Warsaw in 1937. Mercier's assignment is to find out what he can about any future German military plans for Poland and France. Mercier finds plenty of evidence that the Nazis have plans to invade Poland and to strike at France through Belgium, but the generals and politicians back in Paris decline to put much faith in his intelligence. Mercier also deals with romantic entanglements and who might really be an ally or an enemy, and the loss of a minor spy whom he had been controlling. Alan Furst's latest historical spy novel has received mostly positive reviews with the Houston Chronicle saying, "The Spies of Warsaw adds another layer to the world he has created, and this engaging historical fiction should be read by anyone who loves a compelling story well told."
