Starred review - "With high-octane action, steadily building tension, and a plot packed with twists, Magson's second Harry Tate novel suggests the best of Ken Follett or Robert Ludlum but with a touch more substance." --Booklist (American Library Association)
"... if you enjoy a well-written, uncomplicated plot free of foul language and gratuitous sex, this is for you. Snog Marry Avoid? Definitely snog. (Harry's) a man I'd like to get to know better." --The Sun
"Spies spying on spies. Convoluted derring-do best enjoyed by the conspiracy crowd."
"Magson's tight and muscular writing is a delight to behold. Harry Tate is an excellent warts-and-all character; smart and courageous, yet without the smugness of George Smiley or the soulnessness of robotic Jason Bourne. --New York Journal of Books
