Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Secret Soldier luxuriates in violence, positively raging with Tarantino-style carnage...Provocative.” New York Times
The Secret Soldier is another top-notch Berenson thriller.” Lincoln Journal Star
The Secret Soldier...is a top notch spy thriller...A good fast read and an excellent spy novel.” Examiner.com
“Guidall’s narration is perfectly timed. The long expository passages, which are necessary to give the listener the background to the story, are kept moving by Guidall’s delivery. Graphic passages, including descriptions of terrorist attacks, are made all the more horrifying by Guidall’s carefully managed narration.” AudioFile
“[A] fast-paced thriller...Spy fiction fans will enjoy this one.” Library Journal
