Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A classic spy thriller packed with tension and detail, brilliantly paced. Peter James on Night Heron
[Adam Brookes] does an excellent job of keeping the action moving and the tension high, making Spy Games a difficult book to put down.... Brookes has separated himself from the pack: I've read a lot of very good China books by excellent journalists, but I've never before stayed up far too late on a work night to finish one, unwilling to go to sleep until I knew how it ended. Los Angeles Review of Books on Spy Games
A rich, can't-put-it-down thriller... terrific. Joseph Kanon on Spy Games
Outstanding. Washington Post on Night Heron
One of the best and most compulsively readable spy-fiction debuts in years. Kirkus on Night Heron
Brookes shows that his impressive debut was no fluke, and readers will look forward to Mangan's next adventure. Publishers Weekly on Spy Games
The must-read thriller of the year. NPR Books on Night Heron
A tense spy thriller of the highest order. The Irish Independent
Authentic, taut and compelling. Brookes is the real deal. Charles Cumming on Spy Games
Pulsing with power and danger. New York Times on Night Heron
A smarter or more exciting mystery likely won't be released this year. Kirkus (starred review) on Spy Games
Riveting and accomplished. The Sunday Times (UK)
