Praise for Karin Tanabe:

Riveting...Tanabe pulls the reader in from page one, painting a lush, vibrant paradise with a dark side, and taking us along on a fast-paced, exquisitely layered, beautifully detailed ride to the end. --Kristin Harmel, international bestselling author of The Room on Rue Amelie and The Winemaker's Wife

A Hundred Suns has a cinematic quality...This view of French occupation in Indochina is replete with love affairs, revenge and secrets, not to mention a history lesson about the evils of colonialism." -- Washington Post

A luscious setting combined with a sinister, sizzling plot. -- EW

Tanabe reveals secrets in exquisitely paced steps...A smart, riveting psychological thriller.-- Kirkus

An impeccably researched historical novel that immerses readers completely in a beautiful and haunting place --PopSugar

Richly drawn...Tanabe transports readers to the beauty and danger of 1930s Indochina in this stirring, elegant romance...complete with multidimensional characters who gradually reveal their secrets. Fans of historical fiction will be enthralled.- Publishers Weekly

Stylish, with a dash of noir and heaps of the exotic and elegant setting, A Hundred Suns flips the script of bored society ladies into something altogether more devious and delicious. - Booklist

"This psychological thriller is as twisty and darkly detailed as they come...Tanabe's attention to historical detail and expert pacing of revelation make this a must-read." -- BookBub

A lush and glamorous tale of intrigue and romance in 1930's Indochine. --CrimeReads

This is beautifully written, historical fiction that includes some romance as well as a mystery/thriller twist -- a trifecta.-- Columbus Magazine

A haunting, evocative tale that left me both richly satisfied and deeply unsettled - yet another Tanabe triumph. Captivating, suspenseful, and full of surprises. --Fiona Davis, national bestselling author of The Masterpiece

A Hundred Suns manages the near impossible: it's both a gripping, relevant page turner, and a searing historical examination--in this case, of the brutal atrocities of colonialism. You'll read, as I did, to find out who will win the game of cat and mouse, even as you come to understand that in Indochine in the 1930's--as it is anywhere that one group of people enslaves another--there was no 'winning.' - Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet and June
