Critical Praise

"A story that tautens the sinuous strands of [the] period into a lethal knot."

——The New York Times Book Review

"This rich novel . . . resonates with Hemingway's harrowing work after World War I."

——The Christian Science Monitor

"A fine novel. . . . Thrilling . . . startling. . . . Exquisitely spare prose."

——The Seattle Times

"Like the best of historical fiction, Wilson's story is placed in an imagined past, but it is really happening right now. . . . You're likely to stay up late reading."

——The Washington Post Book World
