I rarely read books of this length; I am so glad that I took the plunge! Ms Tartt has surpassed the standards set by Secret History and The Little Friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive first novel, tense, gripping and vivid, 29 Jan. 2009
This review is from: The Interrogator (Hardcover)
This is a view of the Battle of the Atlantic from an unusual perspective, highlighting the fact that the U-boat war was fought out in 1941 in smoke-filled rooms as well as on the high seas. The author skilfully recreates the atmosphere of wartime Britain - lunchtime concerts and edgy nightclubs in London, a bomb shelter in the Liverpool Blitz, POW camps in Lancashire - while his confident handling of historical detail gives the central story-line a compelling air of authenticity. The twists and rising tensions as British intelligence staff and German prisoners grapple with fundamental conflicts of duty, honour and patriotism against a background of personal and emotional crisis carry the reader through to a satisfyingly ambiguous conclusion.
