No one writes period fiction with the same style and suspense - not to mention substance - as Joseph Kanon' -- Scott Turow `Clever, devious and morally complex' * Sunday Times * `The perfect combination of intrigue and accurate history brought to life' -- Alan Furst `Kanon is fast approaching the complexity and relevance not just of le Carre and Greene but even of Orwell' * New York Times *
