“It comes as no surprise to learn that Sansom’s novel spent month after month on London’s bestseller lists.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer

“There are touches of Graham Greene; Hemingway’s here, too. . . . But Sansom transfigures his sources into a moral universe very much his own.”
The Independent (U.K.)

“Sansom [proves] real noir is best when lit with flashes of wit.”
Publishers Weekly

“Sansom can lay claim to a place among the best distinguished of modern historical novelists.”
-P. D. James
