Praise

Praise for The Red Eagles

“All sorts of fresh twists lift this thriller above the pack . . . A richly intricate plot, offbeat characters, and surprising locations should satisfy all but the most jaded thrill-seekers.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Unusual fiction about espionage derring-do.”
Publishers Weekly


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

“A beautifully crafted and compelling thriller with a heart-stopping ending . . . An unforgettable read.”
—Charles Todd, author of the Inspector Ian Rutledge Series

“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

“[Downing ] is smart and erudite, with a knack for fully-rounded characters and atmospheric but unfussy prose . . . a ripping good tale.”
—The Seattle Times
 
“Downing’s outstanding evocation of the times (as masterly as that found in Alan Furst’s novels or Philip Kerr’s Bernie Gunther series), thematic complexity (as rich as that of John le Carré), and the wide assortment of fully rendered characters provide as much or more pleasure than the plot, where disparate threads are tied together in satisfying and unexpected ways.”
Library Journal, Starred Review
