Praise

Praise for David Downing
 
“Epic in scope, Mr. Downing’s “Station” cycle creates a fictional universe rich with a historian’s expertise but rendered with literary style and heart.”
—The Wall Street Journal

“Full of striking inventions.”
─Kingsley Amis, author of Lucky Jim
 
“A beautifully crafted and compelling thriller with a heart-stopping ending as John Russell learns the personal faces of good and evil. An unforgettable read.”
─Charles Todd, author of the Inspector Ian Rutledge Series
 
“One of the most intelligent and persuasive realizations of Germany immediately before the war.”
Wall Street Journal
 
“In the elite company of literary spy masters Alan Furst and Philip Kerr … [Downing is] brilliant at evoking even the smallest details of wartime Berlin on its last legs.”
Washington Post

Downing distinguishes himself by eschewing the easy ways out. He doesn’t shy away from portraying the cold brutality of the Third Reich, and his characters are far from stereotypes—they’re flawed, confused and real.”
—NPR
