Praise for The Continental Affair

NAMED MOST ANTICIPATED FICTION OF THE SUMMER BY THE NEW YORK POST AND CRIMEREADS

"This cat-and-mouse tale is as glamorous as its title implies... [Mangan] captures time, place, and character with panache." --The Washington Post

"Mangan has quickly made a name for herself as a purveyor of international mystery with a dash of glamor. Sure enough, The Continental Affair brings us onto a train from Belgrade to Istanbul and into a story that will hop from one lushly recreated locale to the next. A woman on that train is holding a good sum of money; a man on the same train has been sent to collect it. Their stories will take readers down a gauntlet of rich settings and haunting back stories." --CrimeReads

"Christine Mangan has written a sleek, smart, stylish caper that manages to traverse both European and emotional landscapes. A theft. A chase. A love story. The Continental Affair is a deeply satisfying, immersive story that isn't to be missed." --Ariel Lawhon, New York Times bestselling author of I Was Anastasia and Code Name Helen

"Richly layered characters, opulent settings, and graceful prose elevate this captivating crime caper. . . . Mangan's character exposition and vivid depictions of exotic locales are sublime. This is a treat." --Publishers Weekly

"A thrilling chase through 1960s Europe with an emotional core and gorgeous prose...The novel is a smart riff on a familiar genre, with complex protagonists and a cliché-defying love story.... For fans of spy thrillers and literary romances alike." --Kirkus Reviews
