Patrick AndersonJust what is Swierczynski up to with this cornucopia of blood and betrayal? At the very least, he's written one of the most outrageously original spy thrillers I can remember…This dark satire…resembles Robert Littell's sardonic portraits of the CIA in The Defection of A.J. Lewinter and The Sisters. Swierczynski's first novel, The Wheelman, was an expert but conventional look at a bank robbery and its aftermath. There's nothing conventional about this novel, his third, and it places the author up there with Charlie Huston among the most interesting of the younger crime writers.
