MEDIA REVIEWS
'Forget about 007. This heroine has her own brand of spycraft' - Washington Post; 'Who Is Vera Kelly? is the twisty, literary, woman-driven spy novel you've always wanted to read' - Amy Stewart, New York Times bestselling author of Girl Waits with Gun; 'Knecht's novel is a slow-burn espionage thriller, a complex treatment of queer identity, and an immersive period piece all rolled into one delectable page-turner' - Entertainment Weekly; 'Gripping, magnificently written... This is a cool, strolling boulevardier of a book, worldly, wry, unrushed but never slow, which casts its gaze upon the middle of the last century and forces us to consider how it might be failing us still' - New York Times Book Review

“A Perfect Spy”

Not so much the blunt instrument that is Fleming's misogynistic 007, more the subtle spycraft and damaged soul of Le Carre's A Perfect Spy, but this is no repressed Cambridge don, who is Vera Kelly? A... More

“An enthralling, fun read”

I really enjoyed this - I went in with no expectations, and it was very nearly a 5 star read for me. It scratched a very particular itch - when I was going through my Le Carre obsession (did it ever stop?) I searched... More
