---"Library Journal
"
"If Brian Freemantle isn't the best writer of spy novels around, he's certainly, along with John le Carre, in the top two. . . . It doesn't get much better than this."
"---The Philadelphia Inquirer
"
"His thrillers . . . are both sleek and tough, filled with gritty characters and superb plotting."
"---Chicago Tribune

""Impossible to put down . . . marvelous . . . real genius."
"---The Washington Post

""Wonderful . . . Freemantle holds the reader in his thrall with masterful, insightful writing."
"---Orlando Sentinel"

"If you like to read about a protagonist who, like a master chess player, seems to be think three or four moves ahead of everyone, then the Charlie M series is for you. It is deliciously complex."

"---Deadly Pleasures"

Praise for "Red Star Burning: "

""

"This is le Carre territory, to be sure--think "The Russia House "(1989)--and Freemantle hits every note perfectly in dramatizing the fundamental conflict between individual values and institutional machinations. On top of that, he constructs an airtight plot, full of backpedaling twists, that leads to a stunning cliffhanger of a finale."---"Booklist "(starred review)

""Freemantle has written a tense and entertaining scramble." --"Library Journal
"""Red Star Burning" is an excellent book on several levels. Freemantle does a great job of developing the espionage plot, and it's fascinating to see the conflicts not only between the UK and Russia but the political maneuvering between MI5 and MI6. ... Freemantle does a wonderful job of blending the interesting world of spy tradecraft with matters of the heart."--"Reviewing the Evidence
