Review

Praise for Thomas Perry

"Perry…builds suspense with all the subtlety of a master chef nursing a risotto to a buttery perfection. It's nothing new to call Perry a master of the genre, but it's no less true for being widely acknowledged."―Booklist 

“Perry is a master of plotting…Most readers know him from his Jane Whitefield ‘disappeared’ series. His thrillers, of which this is one of the best, are even better.” ―Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“Perry delivers a perfect melding of character and plot, light and dark, and he totally immerses the reader in an irresistible narrative.” ―Booklist, “Top 10 Crime Novels of the Year,” on Forty Thieves

“Since his Edgar Award-winning debut novel, The Butcher's Boy . . . Thomas Perry has put together a rewarding string of suspense novels with as much cool competence as some of his best protagonists bring to their work . . . Perry’s a real pro.” ―Shelf Awareness, on The Old Man

“Mr. Perry, in this first-rate thriller, proves as cagy as his criminal mastermind: The reader rarely anticipates his next move. He balances breathtaking suspense with romantic intrigue.”―Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal, on The Bomb Maker
