Reviews

"Kanon operates with an intelligence that briskly evokes the atmosphere of a vanished era."--The New York Times
"The kind of story that demands fog and wisps of cigarette smoke, Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, elegance and bespoke tailoring cozied right up to the bloodstains and betrayal."
--Dallas Morning News
"Sharp prose that's punched up by lines worthy of Bogart or Mitchum."--The Washington Post
"Electric. . . . The dialogue is pitch-perfect, a kind of jazzy patter that feels filmic itself."--The Sunday Oregonian
"Kanon knows his way around a good story."--USA Today
"Delectable stuff."--The Washington Post
"A delicious synthesis of menace and glamour, historical fact and rich imagination."--Seattle Times
"Kanon's prose is eminently noir, all cigarette smoke and magnesium flashbulbs."--Entertainment Weekly
"Comes within a whisker of being flawless."--Kirkus Reviews
