The Limoges Dilemma

The Limoges Dilemma

by

, Historical, Fiction

The war stops for nothing. If you are in the French Resistance, there is no time for grieving or second-guessing or regret — that is what they say. But how do you listen to what your head is telling you when you are living with such a damaged soul?

Alex Kovacs has been smuggled into Limoges after a botched attempt to rescue him and his wife from the Gestapo by flying them out of France. She is gone and he is bereft. In Limoges and the surrounding area, he finds himself confronted not only by the German occupiers of the country but by different Resistance groups with different loyalties and perspectives — some followers of de Gaulle, some Communists, all with an agenda. Struggling with his emotions, and with these competing Resistance groups — all of which have one eye on who will take charge once the war is over — Alex becomes involved in sabotage missions, assassinations and revenge, all of which test his own moral foundation.

The Limoges Dilemma is the fourth book in the Alex Kovacs historical espionage thriller series. If you like to explore the world inhabited by Philip Kerr’s Bernie Gunther or the characters created by Alan Furst, a place and time where looming terror and moral ambiguity live side-by-side, then you’ll love Richard Wake’s World War II thriller series.
