The Paris Architect - Charles Belfoure

Lucien Bernard is trying to survive during the war, in German occupied Paris.  Approached to by a wealthy industrialist to make a hiding room for a hidden Jew, he is asked to do this in order to get a commission to design a large factory.  Not sure if he should help at the beginning, we watch him change and enjoy the challenge of outwitting the Germans.

I did  enjoy this book, although I must say the torture scenes were a bit gruesome for my sensitive stomach, the story kept me going for some time..  I am sure that somebody will be picking this one up to make a movie.  4/5
