Review quote

'Arguably the finest modern American spy story' - New York Times. 'Charles 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. 'Intelligent and enthralling... superbly constructed... wholly convincing' - Eric Ambler. 'Absorbing, intelligent... True entertainment' - New Yorker. 'McCarry's thrillers really thrill, his political insight is praised by senior politicians and his erudition, experience and good writing turn spy stories into literature. McCarry and his dynamic alter-egos wipe the floor with the opposition' - more
