Editorial Reviews

* There is plenty of action and page-turning suspense (and) much to ponder and reflect on as well." - School Library Journal, starred review "Hahn's story re-creates the tensions and moral climate of its period in authentic detail. . . . Suspenseful, carefully wrought, and thought-provoking-a fine achievement. " -Kirkus Reviews "
