Praise For Spy Runner

"Steeped in the paranoia and propaganda of the era, the noir tale draws parallels to the current political and social climate, nationalistic prejudices, and media-disseminated misinformation. . . Well-plotted and -paced, Yelchin’s thriller will be a favorite among readers who have an interest in history and intrigue." —Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Spy Runner

"The action never stops, and readers will be gripped as the narrative thunders to a satisfying conclusion." —Booklist on Spy Runner

"an escalating whirl of chases, crashes, threats, assaults, abductions, blazing gunplay, spies, and counterspies—along with revelations that hardly anyone, even Jake's mom, is what they seem." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on Spy Runner

"Yelchin’s grainy black and white photo illustrations cast ominous shadows and will surely draw browsers into the text." —The Bulletin on Spy Runner
