“John Smolens has written a historical novel with the quick-beating heart of a thriller. Written in crisp, cinematic prose, the novel has echoes of the best noir.”
“A fine writer with a profound knowledge of human behavior gone awry.”
“Smolens has written an intelligent, first-rate thriller, as though Sinclair Lewis was fused with Alan Furst.”
