Editorial Reviews

Praise for Mick Herron   “Mick Herron never tells a suspense story in the expected way.” —The New York Times Book Review   “Delightful . . . with a dry humor reminiscent of Greene and Waugh.” —The Sunday Times, Best Thrillers and Crime Novels of the Past 5 Years   “[A] wickedly clever send-up of the classic British spy novel.” ─Crime Writers' Association “Masterful . . . Superior entertainment that makes most other novels of suspense appear dull and slow-witted by comparison.” ─Publishers Weekly, Starred Review   "Herron’s remarkable novel has enough suspense, action, and deductive dazzlement to keep genre fans happy. But be warned: these are deep waters, and this is not nodding-off, night-table reading." ─Booklist, Starred Review
