Fesperman is the closest thing America has to John le Carré, a writer of great elegance and sophistication whose novels are as topical as they are compelling. In a market saturated by factory-made thrillers, Fesperman stands out as a spy novelist of the highest quality.
'Stylish, thoughtful and satisfying'
'Fesperman focuses on Switzerland and Germany and the wartime intrigues of the White Rose student movement, which dared to speak out against Hitler, as he crafts a tale of love, war and betrayal'
'It goes without saying that Fesperman is a master of orchestrating tension - but he is equally good at characterising his vulnerable, conflicted protagonists'
A superb spy thriller worthy of sharing shelf space with the novels of John le Carré and Ken Follett...darkly imaginative...draws a dramatic portrait
A terrific novel of intrigue, duplicity and death in the shadow of the Khyber Pass...Fesperman is that rare journalist who is also a gifted novelist...first-rate
'An absorbing novel with some provocative commentary on America's war on terror'
