‘Sarah Armstrong has an enviable talent for location and detail. I think the master himself would endorse this novel — an enthralling Greene-land tale of an innocent young man out of his depth in a cold, cold war.’ John Lawton
‘Brilliantly evocative of the insidiousness, paranoia and mistrust of the Soviet period. I tore through each chapter with a growing sense of unease, never quite knowing who to trust.’ Charlotte Philby
‘Sarah Armstrong evokes the cold war era and colours it in with textures and scents and emotions. The prose is beguiling – Alice Munro meets John le Carré.’ Fiona Erskine
