Review quote

"'Thank God McCarry has been rescued from retirement... I've been waiting for years to find out what happened to that old boy Paul Christopher' - Elmore Leonard 'McCarry admirers will hope that the appearance o his 10th novel will help to blow his disguise and ensure that his profile and not just his name, starts to chime with le Carre's. Certainly it deserves to' - Mark Lawson, The Guardian (on Old Boys) 'An exceptional novelist' - Alan Furst 'Intelligent and enthralling' - Eric Ambler 'The books I've been recommending lately are Charles McCarry's CIA novels' - Norman Mailer 'Charles McCarry is not only one of the best writers in America but one of the most important' - Christopher Buckley 'Thank God McCarry has been rescued from retirement and has written another book. I've been waiting years to find out what happened to that old boy Paul Christopher' - Elmore Leonard 'McCarry is the best modern writer on the subject of intrigue - by the breadth of Alan Furst, by the fathom of Eric Ambler, by any measure' - P J O'Rourke 'No one can tell a story like McCarry' - Richard Condon 'The best spy novelists were once spies themselves, including le Carre, Greene and McCarry' - New York Times 'There is no better American spy novelist' - TIME Magazine"
