Five Stars
'Meticulously researched, this puts you right in the thick of the action in and following WW2. Good, believable characters and tense situations. Excellent spy thriller!'
- Angus Rorison - Author of 'The Sven Kingdoms' book series
'The atmosphere created is wonderfully evocative and it captured the atmosphere of Berlin wonderfully ... the author also has a wonderful turn of phrase, and I found myself laughing out loud a couple of times. It is no mean feat to achieve that without breaking the tension and period setting. ... If, like me, you’re not a regular reader of noir and spy thrillers, you’ll find this an excellent introduction to the genre, and it will leave you wanting more, including another book from Fisher.'
- Kit Derrick - Author of 'Man in the Bath' and 'The Raven Sound'
Five Stars
' I couldn’t put this down... If you only read one book set in this time period this year make sure this is it. I believe Mr. Fisher may just very well be this generations le Carre.'
- Tales From the Book Dragon (Book Blogger)
'Exciting, intriguing, well-paced thriller full of twists and turns ... Brilliant.'​
- M.J. Webb - Author of 'A Child of Szabo'
Five Stars
'A dark story about a dark period of time. Well developed characters and a descriptive setting made this story very enjoyable if in a depressing sort of way (but fitting for the time and place). I would definitely read more from this writer.'

Five Stars
'The despair, corruption and hypocrisy of the period ooze from the pages of the book as the hero tries to weave a righteous path in a world filled with turmoil. ... By the end I came away with the feeling that though he had managed to achieve some sort of success it was at a terrible price.'
