In the years leading up to World War II, Mercier is drawn into a world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue in the diplomatic salons and back alleys of the city. He risks his life working in the shadows, amidst spies and others, and finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna (Janet Montgomery, Black Swan), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations.

The 180-minute miniseries is based on the acclaimed novel by New York Times best-selling author Alan Furst and adapted by the Emmy Award-winning writing team Dick Clement and Ian La Franais (Across the Universe).

The DVD and Blu-ray contain one special feature:

  • “David Tennant on Spies of Warsaw.
