Simon Mawer is brilliant. His prose is sparse, lean, and sophisticated, and more remarkably, his prose reflects the style, tempo, and esprit du temps during World War II, particularly within the Resistance movements. This novel is a realistic and even-paced thriller that brings light to the training methods and sacrifices of spies within the Resistance. In addition to teaching his readers by means of a great story, Mawer also conveys the feel of that time period.

I had no idea of Mawer's talent before reading this book, and I cannot wait to read more of his work.
