    —Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Touch and Go

  • "Gary Kriss is a brilliant new talent who has written a literate, complex, historical thriller filled with truly slimy villains, taut nail-biting suspense and snappy good guys you are going to like a lot.  Thanks, Gary, for a terrific fun read!”

    —Stephen Coonts , New York Times bestselling author of Pirate Alley

  • “Gary Kriss makes a powerful debut in the riveting new thriller The Zodiac Deception.  The heavens are aligned to bring you the suspense of World War II - the dangers from Berlin to Paris to Cairo, the scheming of Hitler and his Nazi forces, the strategies of Churchill and his Allies - in a way you've never read about it before.  This is a stunning entry from former NYTimes reporter Kriss, from its haunting opening to its very last line.”
