Reviews

"An absorbing historical thriller." --The New Yorker

"Superbly written...one of the most smoothly readable novels of the year." --Alan Cheuse, Chicago Tribune

"[An] espionage thriller and domestic drama by one of the very best prose stylists and storytellers in the English language." --Atlantic Monthly

"The quality of Boyd's prose and the insight he brings to the story make Restless resonate. Told in his characteristically unobtrusive and elegant tone--[Boyd] explores the very idea of spying..." --Timothy Peters, San Francisco Chronicle

"A gripping and smartly crafted spy thriller set against a fascinating and largely hidden episode in U.S.-British relations." --John Dalton, Washington Post
