The West Cobb morning book discussion group meets on the third Thursday each month. Come and share your favorite finds in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. We read a wide variety of literature including fiction, non-fiction, classics and new releases. Book selections will be available for checkout at the West Cobb Regional Library.
October’s selection,Spies of the Balkans, is a stunning novel about a man who risks everything to fight back against the world’s evil.
Greece, 1940. In the port city of Salonika, with its wharves and brothels, dark alleys and Turkish mansions, a tense political drama is being played out. As Adolf Hitler plans to invade the Balkans, spies begin to circle—and Costa Zannis, a senior police official, must deal with them all. He is soon in the game, working to secure an escape route for fugitives from Nazi Berlin that is protected by German lawyers, Balkan detectives, and Hungarian gangsters—and hunted by the Gestapo. Meanwhile, as war threatens, the erotic life of the city grows passionate. For Zannis, that means a British expatriate who owns the local ballet academy, a woman from the dark side of Salonika society, and the wife of a shipping magnate.
