Check back for Gary’s updates on the book's progress. 

  • “The Zodiac Deception is an amazing and ingenious WWII thriller. From the opening set-up to the shocking ending, Gary Kriss carries the reader on a harrowing journey of espionage and intrigue across the war-torn world and up to the highest levels of Nazi power. Vivid, fast moving, beautifully imagined and convincing, this is an epic debut novel.”

    —Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Two Graves

  • "A refreshingly inventive, exciting WWII thriller. A con artist taught escapes by Houdini, spiritualism tricks by Conan Doyle and Method acting by Stanislavski, his desperate mission takes him from Berlin to Paris to the deserts of North Africa and the intrigues of Cairo. It's unlike anything you've read before."

    —David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Murder as a Fine Art

  • "Intriguing ... a World War Two thriller in the grand old style, but with fresh new twists. I loved it."

    —Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author
