Product Details


“It’s only a story. It’s only a story. It’s only. . . . But the sense of immediacy Mark Mills brings to The Information Officer is so intense that this breathtaking novel reads more like a memoir than a wartime thriller…Even without the added complication of a sadistic murderer, the tension is killing – and Mills leaves us gasping for breath at the end.”              
New York Times Book Review

“Thrilling… magnificent entertainment… this utterly ravishing novel seethes with femmes fatales and double agents
… reads like the story of Casablanca revisited, like a vanished Graham Greene.”—Los Angeles Times
“Mills is as versatile as he is talented…As historical fiction, as mystery, and as love story, this one hits on all cylinders.” – Booklist

“[Mills’s] writing, laced with amusing classical English literary allusions and mixed with a bit of Virgil, is graceful and fluid, the research scrupulous.”—Newark Star-Ledger

“Mark Mills is a superb writer, and The Information Officer is a superb read.” —Joseph O’Neill, author of Netherland

The Information Officer ratchets up the tension with each page, leading to a pulse-pounding climax that will remain with you long after the tale has ended. Wartime Malta comes alive in this meticulously researched and beautifully written portrait of an island on the edge.”—Olen Steinhauer, author of The Tourist

“A forgotten corner of World War II rediscovered and expertly revealed to us.  Fascinating and shrewdly compelling—Mark Mills does it again.”—William Boyd, author of Restless

“A lush, romantic thriller, skillfully crafted by master stylist Mark Mills.” —George Pelecanos, author of The Way Home

The Information Officer is both great historical fiction and a first-rate thriller. Mark Mills has taken a harrowing and often-forgotten conflict, populated it with believable and compelling characters, and then turned up the heat. This is a novel that works on every level.”—David Liss, author of The Devil’s Company
