"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
"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
