“A penetrating portrait. . . . Saturated with color and humming with life.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Gritty, nostalgic.” —The Wall Street Journal

“A cracking good yarn.” —The News & Observer (Raleigh)

“Stunning. . . . Danger, intrigue, politics, and spies are all masterfully woven for the reader’s entertainment. . . . Addictive, fast-paced, and thrilling.” —San Francisco Book Review

“Makes New York come alive with conspiracy and mystery. . . . [Fesperman] has created a character who will stay with you long after the last shot is fired.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The WWII alliance between the Mafia and the U.S. government has been explored in crime fiction before . . . but never in such compelling fashion as Fesperman does here. . . . What makes this novel shine is the way Fesperman combines it with the mobsters-as-patriots angle and with the rich character of the letter writer. A multifaceted mix of mystery and historical fiction.” —Booklist

“Intelligent . . . Fesperman shows a skilled hand at creating the detail of wartime New York. . . . The likable and well-drawn [protagonist] will go over well with readers, especially those fond of historicals.” —Publishers Weekly

The Letter Writer is a unique blend of a scholarly sleuth teamed with a Sherlock Holmes-like chameleon in a time of history ripe for building stories of suspense around. . . . The combination is pure chemistry, and pure entertainment.” —Bookreporter

“The brilliant Dan Fesperman takes us into a world of intrigue. . . . Don’t miss this one—it’s sure to be on my list of the year’s best books.” —Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
