"The most realistic and culturally textured novel I've ever read. LeBor is brave, yet he pulls that courage off with aplomb. Without doubt, this is a thriller masterpiece."--Matthew Dunn, former MI6 operative and author of the Spycatcher novels
"A fascinating geopolitical thriller.... This fast-moving, refreshingly intelligent story is packed with insider knowledge, and brings the world of international politics all too frighteningly to life."--Daily Mail
"Imaginative take on geopolitics.... The action never flags."--Sunday Times (London)
"Jam-packed with narrow escapes, triple and quadruple crosses, changes of identity, and changes of scene.... LeBor acquaints the reader with the dangerous, high-stakes world of contemporary negotiation, and he makes the UN exciting again.... High on action, great on geopolitical intrigue, with an overlay of romance."--Booklist
"Yael Azoulay is more than a match for Ian Fleming's James Bond.... The spy novel reader will enjoy this series set against the backdrop of the geopolitical intrigue of the United Nations."--Iron Mountain Daily News
