Praise for The Washington Decree:

“Adler-Olsen writes as if he’s lived in the United States his entire life, and the novel reads as if it were written recently, not years ago. This thought-provoking and timely political thriller shows the author can craft more than compelling crime scenarios.”—Associated Press

“A tantalizing and timely premise makes this political thriller one of those all-too-real scenarios that leave you thinking once you’re done. Spicy, smart, and entertaining.”—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author

“Adler-Olsen weaves a thought-provoking dystopia. . . . A hauntingly timely political thriller.”—Booklist

“Scarily relevant.”—Library Journal

“Absolutely terrifying.”—The Real Book Spy

More Praise for Jussi Adler-Olsen:

“Satisfyingly dark, both in tone and content . . . An undeniable page-turner.”Publishers Weekly on The Scarred Woman

“Adler-Olsen wields a one-two punch of psychological suspense, as his trademark parallel plot follows the remorseless killer’s manipulations while the humorous, sometimes touching rapport between Mørck and Assad threatens to steal the show.”Booklist (starred review) on The Hanging Girl

“This is a suspense/thriller to beat them all. Not only does it offer action, but readers will start waiting for the rabbit to jump out of the hat and change everything.”Suspense Magazine on The Alphabet House

“A tense, pleasurable read.”—USA Today on The Marco Effect

“[A] sordid tale . . . inspired by actual events during a dark period of Danish history. Ah, but there is more, so much more in this frenzied thriller.”—The New York Times Book Review on The Purity of Vengeance

“A shattering parable of honest individuals caught up in the corruption of our times.”Publishers Weekly (starred review) on A Conspiracy of Faith
