In Red Gold, Jean Casson returns to Paris under a new identity. As a fugitive from the Gestapo, he must somehow struggle to survive in the shadows and backstreets. He is determined to stay clear of trouble, yet, as the war drags on, Casson begins, inevitably, to drift back into the dangerous world of resistance and sabotage.

The author continues to do a remarkable job of vividly painting a portrait of war-torn Europe. However the storyline drags oh so slowly. Would not recommend this to the novice Alan Furst reader.
