  • “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.”

     —Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author of Silent Mercy

  • “Flush with fascinating historical details, The Zodiac Deception by Gary Kriss is an exciting spy thriller like no other. For six months in 1942 as war burns across Europe, "Professor David Walker" is undercover with a seemingly impossible mission--trick Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler into assassinating his boss, Adolf Hitler. Fortunately, the professor is much more than he seems. From Berlin to Paris, Cairo to Istanbul, Walker dodges killers, unmasks charlatans, coordinates with the underground, and creates illusions that seem so real Himmler believes them. This is adventure at its best.”

    —Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Spies

  • “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.”
