Editorial Reviews

“Donald Hamilton has brought to the spy novel the authentic hard realism of Dashiell Hammett; and his stories are as compelling, and probably as close to the sordid truth of espionage, as any now being told.” New York Times
“[Hamilton’s] stories are as compelling, and probably as close to the sordid truth of espionage, as any now being told.” New York Times
“Top-ranking American secret-agent fare…Good writing, slick plotting, and stimulating characters, all tartly flavored with wit.” Book Week
