"One of the year's most literate and absorbing entertainments."
"A brainy noir . . . [a] winningly cryptic tale . . . a cabinet of wonders written by a novelist whose surname and sensibility fit comfortably on the shelf between Umberto Eco and John Fowles."
——Los Angeles Times
"Fasman's fast-paced tale is almost all plot... These characters are better drawn than those in The Da Vinci Code."
