The New York Times

“Superb. . . . Clever, quickly paced and pedal-to-the-metal entertainment.”
Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Superior.... The book races along. Unlike many modern novels, it gets better and better.”
The Economist

“Well-written [and] entertaining.... The tension ratchets up.”
The Wall Street Journal

“Goes down as easily as one of 007’s bon mots.”
The Christian Science Monitor

“So satisfying was Sebastian Faulks’s new James Bond novel that I felt obliged to celebrate by making myself a vodka martini, very dry, shaken, not stirred.”
—Fritz Lanham, Houston Chronicle

“Faulks is a graceful writer with a bracing cold streak and a sharp eye for period detail.”

“Has admirable style and verve, in large part because Faulks approaches the material with respect, never winking at the reader.”
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel
