Reviews

  • "[A] gripping espionage thriller... An addictive cocktail of action, romance and politics."

    Observer
  • "Our Friends in Berlin brings to the fore all of Quinn’s talents – gripping storylines, plot twists, thorough research and elegant prose."

    The Times
  • "A cracking tale of high-stakes espionage and poignant romance. It's elegantly observed, expertly paced and intensely atmospheric."

    Mail on Sunday
  • "Those in search of a smart, tautly rendered, atmospheric beach read should pack a copy now."

    Metro
  • "Our Friends in Berlin is an immensely enjoyable Buchanesque adventure... Its descriptions of London under bombardment are vividly sensuous and beautiful… Its characters are intriguing and deftly presented… Most memorably of all, though, the book and its cast are shot through with a persuasive postmodern melancholy, the hard-wired ambivalence that is very much Le Carré rather than Buchan. This sensibility allows the novel to illuminate complex times."

    Guardian
  • "Quinn’s gripping plot about spying is matched by the evocatively gloomy atmosphere of wartime London that he conjures up."

    The Times
  • "A wartime novel with atmospheric evocations of London in the Blitz"

    Sebastian Faulks, Good Housekeeping
  • "Anthony Quinn's Our Friends in Berlin is set in the Blitz, and captures the horror and strange romance of blackouts, near-death experiences and not knowing who to trust. An Atmospheric thriller."

    Grazia, This Winter's Must Reads
  • "A tightly woven spy thriller full of narrative hairpin bends and cinematic set pieces, this is so atmospheric you can almost taste the cigarettes"

    Claire Allfree, Metro
  • "An eye for a plot, a profound gift for character and a faultless sense of period and place: Anthony Quinn was always going to write first-rate thrillers, and Our Friends in Berlin is pure pleasure."
