What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for City of Exiles

“Alec Nevala-Lee creates a dazzlingly detailed and authentic world of intrigue, weaving a harrowing tale that will enthrall readers with an undercurrent of political ambiguity that evokes le Carre and an intricate, continent-crossing plot reminiscent of The Day of the Jackal. Delivering a complex mix of espionage, European politics, Old Testament riddles and Cold War mysteries, Nevala-Lee is clearly emerging as one of the most elegant new voices in suspense literature."—David Heinzmann, author of Throwaway Girl

Praise for The Icon Thief

"Alec Nevala-Lee is no debut author; he must have been a thriller writer in some past life. This one has everything: great writing , great characters, great story, great bad guy and a religious conspiracy too boot. The Icon Thief is smart, sophisticated and has enough fast-paced action to keep anyone up past midnight. I'm jealous."—New York Times bestselling author Paul Christopher

“Twists and turns aplenty lift this thriller above the rest. From the brutal thugs of the Russian Mafia to the affected inhabitants of the American art world, this book introduces a cast of believable and intriguing characters. Add a storyline where almost nothing is as it first appears, and where the plot turns around on itself to reveal startling contradictions, and the result is a book that grips and holds the reader like a vice. I devoured it in a single sitting.”—National bestselling author James Becker

"Alec Nevala-Lee comes roaring out of the gate with a novel that's as thrilling as it is thought-provoking, as unexpected as it is erudite. The Icon Thief is a wild ride through a fascinating and morally complex world, a puzzle Duchamp himself would have applauded. Bravo."—National bestselling author Jesse Kellerman
