"Charles McCarry is the greatest espionage writer that America has ever produced His plots are complex and compelling, wheels within wheels joy rides that race from one corner of the globe to another, populated by three-dimensional characters who have brains and hearts. The clarity and beauty of his prose separates McCarry from everyone else, and his insider's view of the CIA adds unparalleled authenticity to every one of his novels." -Otto Penzler, owner of The Mysterious Bookshop
