4.0 out of 5 starsFurst on the eve of greatnessApril 4 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is the last installment of the old Alan Furst. Soon he would be immersed in the shadows and espionage of pre-WWII Europe. These works are the works of Furst, the Master. Shadow Trade is a damn fine read though. Suspenseful, with splendid charactor development and wit. If this book were to be rewritten w/today's technology advancements, it'd be a best-seller.

4.0 out of 5 starsA very close parallel and a very intelligent insight into the existing world of corporate intelligence and espionageFeb. 28 2014
By Hugh B. Replogle - Published on Amazon.com
I finally found a copy...... A very good read that builds slowly without dramatic explosions of mayhem and violence. It is a very close parallel and a very intelligent insight into the existing world of corporate intelligence and espionage that is a multi-million dollar industry today in 2014. The characters are very skillfully drawn and very real. I recommend it to any fan of Alan Furst work.
