"[Lawton's] work stands head and shoulders above most other contemporary thrillers, earning those comparisons to Le Carre." -- Clea Simon
"Unputdownable narrative of spying, sexual intrigue, political scandal, and murder . . . a haunting novel transcending the bounds of genre fiction." -- A. N. Wilson
"Flawlessly re-creates the tensions of a society . . . teetering on the brink of a social and sexual revolution . . . Lawton's trick is to take the threads of history and weave them into his own tapestry."
"Lawton's uses the mitieu and ambiance of a time of social and ethical turmoil to write a graceful story that is peopled with historical and fictional characters and features. . . . Highly recommended." -- Roland Person
