[...] the most authentic spy novel ever written [...] an utterly fascinating account of a very dangerous time in British history when elements of the Secret State were out of control.
Andrew Williams has established himself as a master of the intelligent political/historical thriller. The Suicide Club, set partly at Field Marshal Haig's headquarters in 1917 and partly in German occupied Beligum, is his best novel yet: gripping and disturbing
Every bit as cynical in tone as Mick Herron's Slough House mob... a painstakingly recreated account of the cold war's darkest days
Meticulously researched and classily written . . . offers a distinctive perspective
Seamlessly combining real-life characters with fictional, Andrew Williams has fashioned an absolutely cracking espionage novel
If a good spy novel needs anything, it's uncertainty, a hall of mirrors; and Witchfinder delivers it in spades. Great stuff.
The war-damaged Innes is a strong, sympathetic character and the meticulously researched background is fascinating
Williams is an accomplished thriller writer and this may be his best book yet. London in the 1960s, its smoky pubs, damp streets and crackle of sexual liberation is so well portrayed that reading Witchfinder is almost like time travel. Williams blends fact and fiction to make a captivating read
Williams has become one of Britain's most accomplished thriller writers. Rich in the politics of war and based on spectacular research into the reality,The Suicide Club delivers a delicate portrait of the intricacies of war, while never neglecting the bravery.
Praise for The Suicide Club
