From its unforgettable opening to its astonishing ending, Legends proves an unrivalled powerhouse of seductive storytelling. Martin Odum, disgraced CIA field agent turned private detective in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, is struggling his way through a labyrinth of memories of past identities legends in CIA parlance. Is he really Martin Odum? Is he Dante Pippen, IRA explosives maven turned CIA agent? Or is he another legend? These men speak different languages, like different foods and women, and have different skills, and Odums not sure if hes suffering from multiple personality disorder, brainwashing or just plain exhaustion. When Odum is employed to solve a case for a young Russian, Stella Kastner, he is drawn back into the world he left not remembering quite why, struggling to untangle his true identity while under the strains of mortal danger and psychological disorientation. An extraordinarily intelligent thriller, taut and explosive, Legends is an unrelentingly arresting page-turner.

MEDIA REVIEWS
No one has a better grasp of this shadow world than Littell He is back to what he does best: walking back the cat, tracing a path through the intense complexities of intelligence and counterintelligence, which combine to form a philosophical hell * Guardian *
Littell's book is audacious, vivacious, original, and thrilling Reading it in the small hours was like gulping a slug of Stolichnaya straight from the freezer * Literary Review *
