?I plunged into this novel intimidated at first by its length, then astonished to find myself unable to put it down. For this is a thriller, a long chain of events during which the suspense never flags. . . exact and dry, rich in detail but fast-moving, frighteningly real yet verging on the incredible.? ? Milan Kundera <br><br> ?Striking, suspenseful...Brilliant? ? The Observer
