Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mixing fact and fiction effectively, MacKinnon…shows great insight into the inner workings of U.S. intelligence. His clipped prose style, descriptive discipline and tone-perfect dialogue elevate this thriller above the pack.” Publishers Weekly
“A haunting, disturbingly realistic portrait of the failings, organizational and personal, that opened up the skies for 9/11…[A] rising sense of sorrowful frustration…pays off in a gut punch of an ending." Booklist
