Synopsis: September 1939. As Warsaw falls to Hitler?s Wehrmacht, Captain Alexander de Milja is recruited by the intelligence service of the Polish underground. His mission: to transport the national gold reserve to safety, hidden on a refugee train to Bucharest. Then, in the back alleys and black-market bistros of Paris, in the tenements of Warsaw, with partizan guerrillas in the frozen forests of the Ukraine, and at Calais Harbor during an attack by British bombers, de Milja fights in the war of the shadows in a world without rules, a world of danger, treachery, and betrayal.

From the Publisher: 'Surely among the most convincing war books of our time.' - NICHOLAS BAGNALL, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
'Brilliant ... you can almost hear the chained wheels of the Gestapo car on the snow, the whack of bullets in the moonlit Polish forests, the quietness of occupied Paris by night.' - JOHN SWEENEY, OBSERVER
'Excellent ... beautifully written, intensely atmospheric and dramatically convincing. The Polish Officer is a work of quiet subtlety that will niggle in the memory far longer than most novels of espionage.' - MARCEL BERLINS , SUNDAY TIMES
'His finest achievement yet: a subtle work of great quality and imaginative reach. He brings alive a little-known time and place of war, a tapestry set out in threads of people scurrying through moonlit cobblestoned streets.' - VINCENT BANVILLE, IRISH TIMES
'My discovery of the year.' - WILLIAM BOYD, THE TIMES
