"A gripping and persuasive novel, with shades of both Graham Greene and Alan Furst in its atmosphere and the moral challenges handed to its two protagonists, father and son. You won't get to the bottom of anything in Tangier, Christopher Chaffee hears as he sets out to discover what really happened to his missing father in war-time Morocco. With its sexual entanglements and war-time politics, dramatic tension mounts and the questions multiply. It's a really terrific read." - Rosalind Brackenbury, author of The House in Morocco, Becoming George Sand , and The Third Swimmer "TANGIER possesses all the hallmarks of a good international thriller: spies, diplomats, men and women with ambiguous loyalties and motives, smoke-filled cafes, and a protagonist in search of information he might just regret finding out. But it goes beyond that. TANGIER also delivers rich characterization and thought-provoking insights into the psychology of power." -Steve Wiegenstein, author of Slant of Light, This Old World , and The Language of Trees "I have admired the writing of Steve Holgate for as long as I can remember, and count him as a fundamental influence on my own sensibility as a comedy writer. His brilliant, original, and frequently hilarious literary voice is on display everywhere in TANGIER, which has earned its place on my bookshelf among the best works of modern American fiction." - Brent Forrester, writer The Simpsons and The Office "An intriguing trip back in time, as a contemporary American searches for his own identity by tracing the wartime exploits of the French father he never knew in a complex world of spies and counterspies.Set in the exotic and sinister city of Tangier whose descriptions leap so vividly off the page, that the city itself becomes a character in the drama." - Mark York, headwriter of Doug "Writing that lets the storytell itself. Holgate weaves a tight web across a span offifty-five years. A yarn beautifully spun. Forget sleep, turn thepages." - Tony Wolk, author of the Lincoln in Time trilogy
