Product Details


“Never less than wholly entertaining.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Deft, taut fiction. . . . Many English writers have been compared to Evelyn Waugh, often wrongly, but this book can stand with the master’s best.” —Time

“So exhaustively suspenseful that it should be devoured at one sitting. . . . McEwan fuses a spy-novel plot with themes as venerable as the myth of Adam and Eve.” —Newsweek

“Has the spooky, crooked-angled, danger-around-every-corner feeling of a Carol Reid film. It reminded me often of The Third Man and that is no mean feat.” —Jonathan Carroll, The Washington Post Book World

“Powerful and disturbing . . . a tour de force.” —The New York Times
