    Spies of Warsaw is a deeply romantic, intricately plotted, and well-structured character study.

    Durst’s books all offer the same engaging elements that the BBC makes such excellent use of in this two-part miniseries: The claustrophobic lifeboat atmosphere of a society teetering toward its doom.

    Throughout, Spies delivers the vicarious pleasures of old-fashioned spy movies with the bold contemporary frankness of the best of cable.

    Spies of Warsaw starts off as a complex spy drama and feels like it finishes as a less complex romance drama.

    Despite its historic gravitas and scrupulous attention to period detail, Spies of Warsaw never really ignites.

    The cloak-and-dagger stuff, however, proves terribly mild, and the romance stiff and hackneyed.
