'There is no better American spy novelist. It's like the best parts of ten John le Carré novels all put together' - TIME. 'Charles McCarry's masterpiece... would be intriguing even if told in pedestrian prose, but the grace of its writing gives it a special dimension... beautifully written, its conspiracy theory still intrigues and it most assuredly is a classic' --Washington Post
'The best writer of intelligence and political novels in the world' - Boston Globe. 'Cool, intelligent... superbly readable... rich entertainment' --Sunday Times
'Ranks up there with Le Carré in a select class of two' - Daily Mail. 'Possibly the greatest espionage novel ever written and certainly the most compelling effort to unravel the many secrets surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy' --Otto Penzler, New York Sun
