The Spies of Zurich

(The second book in the Alex Kovacs series)
A novel by

It is 1939 and Germany has invaded Poland. World War II has started but the main event is still being planned. Two questions hang over everyone: When will Hitler’s army turn to the west, and will France be ready?

After the fall of Austria and then Czechoslovakia, Alex Kovacs now lives in Zurich. He is a banker and he is in love – but he hasn’t left the spy business behind, not completely. He and his contacts in the espionage community – and Switzerland is a hotbed of spies – think they know what is going to happen, how Hitler will invade and how he will help to fund the endeavor. The problem is that no one in authority seems to want to listen. Frustrated but also determined, Alex fights for a way to get someone to hear him.

The Spies of Zurich is the second book in the Alex Kovacs historical espionage thriller series. If you like to explore the world inhabited by Philip Kerr’s Bernie Gunther or the characters created by Alan Furst, a place and time of unfathomable evil where the biggest questions sometimes are forced upon the most ordinary of people, then you’ll love Richard Wake’s new pre-World War II thriller.
