“A master spy novelist.”—The Wall Street Journal “Page after page is dazzling.”—James Patterson NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Late summer, 1938. Hollywood film star Fredric Stahl is on his way to Paris to make a movie. The Nazis know he’s coming—a secret bureau within the Reich has been waging political warfare against France, and for their purposes, Fredric Stahl is a perfect agent of influence. What they don’t know is that Stahl, horrified by the Nazi war on Jews and intellectuals, has become part of an informal spy service run out of the American embassy. Mission to Paris is filled with heart-stopping tension, beautifully drawn scenes of romance, and extraordinarily alive characters: foreign assassins; a glamorous Russian actress-turned-spy; and the women in Stahl’s life. At the center of the novel is the city of Paris—its bistros, hotels grand and anonymous, and the Parisians, living every night as though it were their last. Alan Furst brings to life both a dark time in history and the passion of the human hearts that fought to survive it. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Alan Furst's Midnight in Europe. Praise for Mission to Paris “The most talented espionage novelist of our generation.”—Vince Flynn “Vividly re-creates the excitement and growing gloom of the City of Light in 1938–39 . . . It doesn’t get more action-packed and grippingly atmospheric than this.”—The Boston Globe “One of [Furst’s] best . . . This is the romantic Paris to make a tourist weep. . . . In Furst’s densely populated books, hundreds of minor characters—clerks, chauffeurs, soldiers, whores—all whirl around his heroes in perfect focus for a page or two, then dot by dot, face by face, they vanish, leaving a heartbreaking sense of the vast Homeric epic that was World War II and the smallness of almost every life that was caught up in it.”—The New York Times Book Review “A book no reader will put down until the final page . . . Critics compare [Alan] Furst to Graham Greene and John le Carré [as] a master of historical espionage.”—Library Journal (starred review) “Alan Furst’s writing reminds me of a swim in perfect water on a perfect day, fluid and exquisite. One wants the feeling to go on forever, the book to never end. . . . Furst is one of the finest spy novelists working today.”—Publishers Weekly

Le 1er juillet 1943, le cardinal Suhard, archevêque de Paris, fonde la Mission de Paris en créant une équipe de prêtres déchargés de toute fonction paroissiale. C'est l'une des initiatives qu'il prend - celle qui va lui tenir particulièrement à cœur - pour répondre à la question qui le taraudait : " Je n'ai pas à chercher bien loin le sujet de mes méditations. C'est toujours le même : il y a un mur qui sépare l'Eglise de la masse. Ce mur, il faut l'abattre à tout prix pour rendre au Christ les foules qui l'ont perdu... Mais comment faire ? " Presque soixante ans plus tard, cinq prêtres-ouvriers de la Mission de Paris témoignent. Ils ont décidé, ensemble, d'évoquer leurs itinéraires missionnaires. Partis " sans bagage et sans esprit de retour ", ils ont fait le pari sacerdotal de s'immerger totalement dans le monde ouvrier de l'immédiat après-guerre. Leur " naturalisation " en terre ouvrière les a conduits à instaurer un nouvel esprit apostolique, ouvert et adapté aux réalités de l'époque. En 1954, la hiérarchie catholique les a contraints au choix " impossible " de quitter l'usine. Déchirés, ils ont refusé de se soumettre, continuant à partager la condition ouvrière, devenant des hommes parmi les hommes. Des documents, pour la plupart inédits, viennent en annexes spécifier les contextes de ces témoignages.
