"A convincing little nightmare. A Twilight Zone-ish yarn that tests the very notion of how human identity is shaped."
"Simply thrilling. Its surprising denoument works a retrospective magic."
-The New York Times Book Review
"Compelling ... The terse prose is unpretentious and the plot is full of captivating twists."
-San Francisco Chronicle
"An engaging intellectual page-turner."
"Had Camus trained at the CIA, this is the book he would have written. A hauntingly literary espionage thriller."
-Brad Thor, author of State of the Union
"Van Cauwelaert starts with a premise that could serve a Hitchcock thriller, a Twilight Zone episode, or a heavy-going exercise in existentialism. But [he] nimbly sidesteps clichT and pretense.... The swift final scene-a breathtaking jetT-should surprise even the most jaded fan of thrillers. A little gem."
