Summary
<b>The <i>New York Times</i> bestseller</b><br /><br /> “A beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man's unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the second world war.” —Malcolm Gladwell<br /><br /> A thrilling debut novel of World War II Paris, from an author who's been called "an up and coming Ken Follett." (Booklist)<br /><br /> In 1942 Paris, gifted architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission that will bring him a great deal of money – and maybe get him killed. But if he’s clever enough, he’ll avoid any trouble. All he has to do is design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined German officer won’t find it. He sorely needs the money, and outwitting the Nazis who have occupied his beloved city is a challenge he can’t resist.&#xa0;<br /><br /> But when one of his hiding spaces fails horribly, and the problem of where to hide a Jew becomes terribly personal, Lucien can no longer ignore what’s at stake. <i>The Paris Architect</i> asks us to consider what we owe each other, and just how far we’ll go to make things right.&#xa0;<br /><br /> Written by an architect whose knowledge imbues every page, this story becomes more gripping with every soul hidden and every life saved.
