Product description

Review

Even reviewers have their favourites and John Lawton is one of mine. Nobody is better at using historical facts as the framework of a really good story... The crowded, complication story is enriched by glimpses of Kennedy and Krushchev, by pinpoint-precise period detail and by interesting, credible characters. * Literary Review * [A] cleverly misleading title, one of the many twists in John Lawton's constantly entertaining Cold War saga... The spying detail is well mixed with humour. * The Times * A complex and beautifully detailed tale, a full-blooded cold-war spy thriller * Irish Times * All these adventures arrive gift-wrapped in writing variously rich, inventive, surprising, informed, bawdy, cynical, heartbreaking and hilarious. However much you know about postwar Berlin, Lawton will take you deeper into its people, conflicts and courage... spy fiction at its best. * Washington Post * Lawton's gift for memorable atmosphere and characters, intelligent plotting and wry prose put him solidly at the top of anyone's A-list of contemporary spy novelists. * Seattle Times * Both books are meticulously researched, tautly plotted, historical thrillers in the moUld of World War II and Cold War fiction by novelists like Alan Furst, Philip Kerr, Eric Ambler, David Downing and Joseph Kanan. * Wall Street Journal on THE UNFORTUNATE ENGLISHMAN and THEN WE TAKE BERLIN * Intricate plotting, colourful characters, and a brilliant prose style put Lawton in the front rank of historical thriller writers. * Publishers Weekly * A sublimely elegant historical novelist as addictive as crack but overlooked by too many readers for too long. * Daily Telegraph on A LILY OF THE FIELD * Lawton's up there with Philip Kerr and Alan Furst. Yes, he's that good. * The Sun on THEN WE TAKE BERLIN * While Lawton's previous novels were distinguished by their precise and elegant prose, Then We Take Berlin offers, courtesy of its Cockney protagonist, a cruder but equally effective vernacular style underpinned by mordant black humour. * Irish Times on THEN WE TAKE BERLIN * Lawton builds a wonderfully convincing picture...writing with remarkable authority... as usual with Lawton's books, it's rather more than the sum of its parts. * Spectator on THEN WE TAKE BERLIN *
