• The narrative is brilliantly complex and beguiling, and the climax devastating

  • Clever, highly readable… Neither predictable nor surprising, the dénouement, when it finally happens, is shocking, moving and horribly convincing

    Literary Review
  • A classic of its kind, brewing up enormous pathos undiluted by sentimentality

    Daily Telegraph
  • A fierce, elliptical novel that's both a gripping philosophical thriller and a highly moving meditation on the emotion consequences of war

    New York Times
  • Only the best historical fiction can make the journey into a distant time and return with a believable sense of how things really were. That Japrisot's book has done so is a mark of his great talent and experience as a writer

    Washington Post
