Dr Bensimon’s receptionist (a slim, bespectacled, severe-looking woman) had shown him into a small waiting room and mentioned, politely, that he was in fact some forty minutes early for his appointment. Therefore, if he wouldn’t mind waiting until? My mistake – foolish. Coffee? No, thank you. Lysander sat in a low armless black leather chair, one of four in the room, placed in a loose semi-circle facing an empty grate below a plaster mantelpiece, and once again called on calmness to soothe his agitated mood. How could he have been so wrong about the time?

Waiting for Sunrise book. William Boyd is a master at dissimulation and at inserting little disturbing notes into the narrative that slowly change the focus from the inner journey of discovery Lysander Rief is going through, to the European conflict that is just about ready to burst. Lysander is an actor and a poet, and most of all an innocent in a world rife with intrigue and betrayals.
In Waiting for Sunrise, William Boyd has come up with it. At least it begins in Vienna, before becoming . At least it begins in Vienna, before becoming very British, just as it is part psychological teaser and part spy novel. Some critics have found the switches of tone and location disorientating, but then Boyd is an unashamedly cosmopolitan writer, and the better for it. Still, the discontinuities can puzzle. It is with some surprise that we witness our well-born, somewhat effete young actor hero mutate into an ingenious and ruthless spy hunter, but then the author has a cunning excuse.
