“Le Carré and Deighton fans will welcome Steiner’s first engaging novel. The scenes in small-town France capture the atmosphere and pace of life there wonderfully.”

—Publisher’s Weekly

“A page turner—like a good Alan Furst or Graham Green novel.”

—The Washingtonian

“Steiner sketches such a rich life for his tiny town that he makes you want to get on the next plance.”

—Chicago Tribune
