"An edgy spy thriller . . . [and] a tale of love--between father and son, man and woman--set against a foreboding background that is poignant and imminently believable. . . . Captivating."--Denver Post

"Compelling . . . intriguing . . . superb . . . reads beautifully and convinces utterly."--Wall Street Journal

"Intriguing...Kanon wonderfully conveys the paranoia of the times. . . . The Prodigal Spy has a richness of emotional layers usually not found in espionage novels." --USA Today

"Vivid . . . tense . . . reheats the Cold War with history, mystery and a political blast from the past."--People

"Kanon does a fine job . . . blending history, fiction, suspense and romance . . . but what he does the best is to turn more than a few moments in our history into a personal story that shows the reality of what we have done and can do to each other."--Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
