    Robert Wilson is an interesting writer and I did enjoy reading his Falcon quartet which showed his insightful writing style when it comes to coleur locale of his books I always thought I had read this book as wel but it turns out I was mistaken.A story about Spies in the neutral country of Portugal during WWII in which a young lady, our heroine, gets send to Lissabon to participate in the world of spying among each other with the Alies and the Germans, who could essentially do business with the allies from the opposition It is also the story of a member of the Wehrmacht who gets caught up in the office politics of the German Reich and finds himself out of his depth He gets a way out after his brother dies in Russia and his father kills himself and ends up in Lissabon as second in command in what is in essence the spies being run And at the same time he is a double for the British in stopping the Nazis.When everything does not go to plan the German gets killed leaving behind the English Lass who then gets maneuvered into an uncertain situation and she ends up staying in Portugal.The second part of the book is in the late sixties when our heroine has lost both her man and so...

    This book cost me 2 for the paperback and a lot of hours of sleep I couldn t put it down I dislike having to resort to what another reviewer has said, but I m in complete agreement with the Los Angeles Times Absorbing and brilliantly written, this is caviar for the cognoscenti But the appeal went way beyond that for me This book isn t only a brilliant po...

    Just finished I think all of Robert Wilson s books company of Strangers took me to the gripping quality of Blind Man of Seville and the Javier Falcon series Don t know what it is as I ve had a remarkably unremarkably comfortable life but Wilson awakens fascinating dark places in this, amon...

    Reading this thriller was like reading two separate books inexpertly stitched together In the first half, a young English student is recruited by her country s secret service and sent to Portugal in 1944 for the purpose of espionage, although her exact assignment is not exactly explained There, she falls in love at first sight, or rather at first grip, with a German diplomat who turns out to be a double agent involved in an assassination attempt against Hitler This part of the book is masterlful, despite many holes in the plot But one forgives them because the pace is so fast and furious and the tension so taut For the most part it s very well written, although occasionally over written with a couple too many soaring metaphors for my liking But this author has a real poetic gift he often made me quite jealous Wilson lives in Portugal and really makes the setting come to life the hot dusty hills surrounding Lisbon and the dingy streets of the city itself The second half of the book is less successful Tragically divided, the lovers go their separate ways for decades I won t give away the plot suffice to say that they meet again in Cold War East Berlin This part of the story has the feel of warmed over John Le Carre You get sentences like this He drove a slow circuit of the blocks of flats before coming out again on the Karl Marx Allee and heading ...

    I did not know what I was getting into when I started this book It was given to me and I was told it s a good book Yes, it is It is not my genre I am not into spies, double agents, espionage, etc however, if that is your forte The Company of Strangers is a must Starting in the 1940s and ending in the 90s the writer keeps it interesting and pacts a lot of adventure into this book I must admit it was confusing at time, the writer used too many street names, foreign cities that were difficult to remember There were many char...
