"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
“The Zodiac Deception offers a fresh and wondrously original take on the old World War II tale. Gary Kriss's sterling debut mixes magic and mysticism with espionage and derring-do to create a perfect blend of what you'd have if Eye of the Needle met Stephen King on a lighter day. The story may not be true, but you'll wish it was and believe it too. Bold, refreshing, and downright terrific.”
—Jon Land, bestselling author of Pandora's Temple
"A smart, sophisticated, and inventive thriller, THE ZODIAC DECEPTION is an utterly convincing and compelling debut. The effort Kriss put into the story shows — and the relationship between Max, double agent and Nazi filmmaker, and Peter, the con man who must assassinate Hitler, is one for the ages. Don’t miss it."
-J.T. Ellison, New York Times bestselling author of WHEN SHADOWS FALL
