Oct.Belfoures suspenseful and commercially oriented debut, set in 1942 Paris, follows a self centered, ambitious man as he develops a moral conscience When a rich businessman persuades architect Lucien Bernard to adapt an apartment to create a hiding place for a wealthy Jew, he takes it as a challenge Despite the dangers, Lucien likes fooling the occupying Germans, the money is excellent, and it comes with a lucrative opportunity to design a new factory for the Reich Tensions rise as he gets drawn deeply into the plans of both the occupiers and the Resistance After one careless mistake results in tragedy, however, he begins reevaluating his life The plot doesnt skimp on evoking the constant fear the Parisians face or the brutality the Jews encounter Food is scarce, black market goods are costly, and neighbors rat one another out to save their own necks With his unadorned, zippy style and broad brush characters, Belfoure writes like an up and coming Ken Follett but with sex
