    An exceptionally readable, sophisticated thriller Silva ranks among the best of the younger American spy novelists. The Washington Post A cloak-and-dagger tale [that] moves at a brisk clip, with clean, lucid exposition and characters who are thoughtfully drawn. The New York Times The plot is rich, multilayered and compelling with issues as timely as the daily headlines and problems as old as humankind Silva maintains tension and suspense. The Denver Post Enthralling a thriller that entertains as well as enlightens. The Orlando Sentinel Smooth and compelling. Detroit Free Press Silva's sophisticated treatment, polished prose, an edgy mood, and convincing research give his plot a crisp, almost urgent quality. Publishers Weekly (starred review) Silva knows how to plot [he] will draw you in and you ll learn something at the same time. Rocky Mountain News Thrilling a good, cinematic story. St. Louis Post-Dispatch"
