Reviews
Praise for Mick Herron

"Confirms Mick Herron as the best spy novelist now working."
--NPR's Fresh Air

"Mick Herron never tells a suspense story in the expected way."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Compulsively readable, tightly plotted."
--Los Angeles Times

"Suspense, spycraft, dry wit and vulgar humor are all well-deployed in this satisfying work by Mr. Herron, whose style can accommodate everything from a tough action scene to a lyrical elegy."
--The Wall Street Journal

"Herron writes squeakingly well-plotted spy thrillers. More than that, he composes--at the rate of a pulpist--the kind of efficient, darkly witty, tipped-with-imagery sentences that feel purpose-built to perforate my private daze of illiteracy."
--The Atlantic

"The best in a generation, by some estimations, and irrefutably the funniest."
--Jill Lepore, The New Yorker
