“One of the most imaginative and adventurous of the young Irish novelists working today.” —Irish Independent“[A] well-plotted thriller . . . fans of Jacqueline Winspear and David Roberts will be well rewarded.” —Publishers Weekly“A narrative pace that never flags for an instant, a solid cast of characters, a vividly imagined re-creation of a particular historical moment . . . if thrillers are to work they must be thrilling. And this is where Boyne scores highest of all.” —The Irish Times
