Praise for Checkpoint and Jean-Christophe Rufin

“This mix of well-crafted characters, psychological suspense, and the harsh realities of life in wartime results in a nail-biting, challenging literary thriller. A novel of war that asks hard questions about what decency demands of us as human beings.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Jean-Christophe Rufin knows how to tell a story. His characters’ lives dramatize big questions about what it means to be alive and to act.”
France Info

“Subtle and enthralling.”
Elle (France)

“Jean-Christophe Rufin has written an adventure book…The success of this great novel lies in its suspense and in the meticulous psychology of its protagonists.”
Le Nouvel Observateur

“Rufin’s The Red Collar is perfectly paced, darkly humorous and an excellent window into the turmoil and emerging politics of postwar France.”
San Francisco Chronicle

The Red Collar is a modern parable about loyalty to others, fidelity to one’s convictions, and the self-effacement needed to bear the consequences of living by one’s belief.”
New York Journal of Books
