“Steiner has fashioned a compact gem of espionage. . . . a beautifully written tale . . . simply a superb novel and a deeply human story about engaging people, life, illness, love, and terrorism.”

—Booklist (starred review)

“Steiner’s brisk, sure footed third spy thriller to feature 71 year old ex CIA agent Louis Morgon shows it’s hard to outmaneuver an old Dog. Wickedly tight prose propels a plot that shows not one shred of fictional obesity.”
