As delicately crafted as John le Carre at the height of his George Smiley years, it is a delight from first page to last... Seductive, unexpectedly sexy... it's told with an elegance that reverberates long after it's finished: it is quite superb (Geoffrey Wansell DAILY MAIL - 25 June 2010)
It's classic Furst - elegantly written, faultlessly researched, full of lovely details... Excellent. (THE GUARDIAN - 26 June 2010)
Furst's characters have the foibles, frailties and fears of humanity under pressure... it is a thriller but with real people and real history. I cannot wait for my next Furst. (Denis MacShane MP Minister for the Balkans 2001-05 THE INDEPENDENT - 2 July 2010)
enthralling evocation of the Balkans in 1940... A dark, frightening, instructive tale. (Jessica Mann LITERARY REVIEW)
intensely cinematic... the visual texture is rich and the Furst-world closes around the reader with an agreeable chill from the outset (TLS)
The literary style belies a deftly paced plot in an old-fashioned spy thriller more reminiscent of John Le Carré and Graham Greene than Ian Fleming. Highly recommended. (THE IRISH TIMES)
'America's pre-eminent spy novelist' (NEW YORK TIMES) returns with a gripping tale of intrigue and a thrilling change of locale.See all Product description
