Praise for John Lawton:

"Wickedly seductive entertainment . . . John Lawton is creating some of our finest, and some of our most enjoyably ambiguous historical fiction."--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
"[Lawton] is a master of creating a feeling of time and place, of amalgamating true-life events into his imaginative plot, of bringing every character, real or fictitious, major or minor, vividly to life."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"Intricate plotting, colorful characters, and a brilliant prose style put Lawton in the front rank of historical thriller writers."--Publishers Weekly
"Constantly entertaining . . . The spying is well mixed with humor."--Times (UK)
"Lawton's books contain such a wealth of period detail, character depiction, and background information that they are lifted out of any category. Every word is enriched by the author's sophistication and irreverent intelligence, by his meticulous research and his wit."--Literary Review
