Publisher's summary

In this thrilling historical spy novel from New York Times best-selling author Alan Furst, two heroic resistance fighters smuggle valuable information to occupied Paris to turn the tide of the World War II and defeat Nazi Germany.

Occupied Paris in 1942, a dark, treacherous city now ruled by the German security services, where French resistance networks are working secretly to defeat Hitler. Just before he dies, a man being chased by the Gestapo hands Paul Ricard a strange looking drawing. It looks like a part for a military weapon; Ricard realizes it must be an important document smuggled out of Germany to aid the resistance. As Ricard is drawn deeper and deeper into the French resistance network, his increasingly dangerous assignments lead him to travel to Germany, and along the underground safe houses of the resistance - and to meet the mysterious and beautiful Leila, a professional spy.

From “an incomparable expert at his game” (The New York Times) and based on true events of Polish prisoners in Nazi Germany, Under Occupation captures the courageous and astonishing impact resistance fighters had during WWII and the lengths they went for freedom.

Critic reviews

"Narrator Peter Noble is known for the range and variety of his audiobook credits, and more importantly for his sensitivity to the unique mood and character of each work he undertakes. That skill is put to good use in historical novelist Alan Furst's latest WWII thriller.... Noble's delivery is measured and slightly hushed, as if danger were lurking somewhere close by - as it invariably is in this tense, high-action thriller." (AudioFile Magazine)
