PRELUDE TO A CERTAIN MIDNIGHT (1947) is a very fine novel but provokes a strong reaction among those who expect good to always triumph.

It also has a very strong anti-pacifist theme running through it, which is not surprising given the historical context. Kersh was Jewish. I will abstain from calling it Jewish noir, Juri.
