Product Details


Praise for Wedding Station

“Tensely satisfying . . . Downing excels at dramatizing the anxiety and dread pervading a society whose civil liberties are being daily eroded.”
—Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal

“[A] stunning literary thriller.”
The Seattle Times

“[Downing’s] Station series, six titles before Wedding Station, evoke the relentless terror of life in Berlin during World War II. Now, in a fierce and daring prequel, Downing reveals the back story to the propulsive series . . . An ideal choice for both Downing fans and newcomers.”
—New York Journal of Books

“Chillingly resonant.”
Booklist, Starred Review 

“A litany of sordid crimes that are both a MacGuffin for and a window into a chilling, compelling era.”
Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the John Russell Thrillers

“Epic in scope, Mr. Downing’s ‘Station’ cycle creates a fictional universe rich with a historian’s expertise but rendered with literary style and heart.”
—The Wall Street Journal

“Downing adroitly elucidates the morass that was post-World War II geopolitics without dumbing it down . . . One can only marvel at his talent for infusing such a rangy cast of characters with nuance and soul.”
—The New York Times Book Review
“A beautifully crafted and compelling thriller with a heart-stopping ending as John Russell learns the personal faces of good and evil. An unforgettable read.”
─Charles Todd, author of the Inspector Ian Rutledge Series
“Downing is one of a trio of exceptional writers (Philip Kerr and Alan Furst being the other two) who have managed to re-create a time and place when much of the world seemed to have gone temporarily mad.”
—The Denver Post
“There’s nothing better than a well-written WWII thriller. Alan Furst continues to prove it, and now Downing has shown he can produce that creepy sense of paranoia along with the best of them.”
—Rocky Mountain News
