Reviews

This remarkable collection of 14 short stories explicating tradecraft from the OSS of World War II through today's "sleepers" and terrorists is contributed by leading contemporary American and British stars in spy fiction. Editor Penzler has chosen well as no disappointments lurk here, and the stories move the reader on a roller coaster of moods from dismal through the brightest of lights and back again. Prominent among the contributors, Charles McCarry summons West African horrors, John Lawton offers a hilarious con job, James Finder springs a sudden surprise, John Weisman demonstrates that it's hard for a spy to stay alive, and Dan Fesperman's storytelling shines, as does Stella Rimington's. Verdict Those spy fans who enjoy the excellent writing in the celebrated novels of these contributors will discover no loss of tension or excitement here and are likely to acquire new appreciation for the skill with which the authors deliver their tales.-Jonathan Pearce, California State Univ.-Stanislaus, Stockton, CA Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
