[A] riveting novel... a fast-paced, brilliantly constructed thriller, in which the fates of the three young British protagonists hang in the balance at the end of every chapter. The period detail is as sharply focussed as one of Riefenstahl's own films. * A. N. Wilson, SPECTATOR *
[A] richly evocative historical novel. * THE TIMES *
Fascinating... Farndale's panoramic view of pre-war German society on the verge of irreparable change is persuasively evoked. * THE OBSERVER *
A novel rich in historical detail, but wearing its research lightly, and the story is told in a French Lieutenant's Woman kind of way, veering from the present to the past with superb flair. With the rise of the alt right again polluting our democracies, this novel has an uncomfortable prescience, with a plot twist at the end which is ingenious. * IRISH INDEPENDENT *
A masterly exploration of conflicting loyalties set against the 1936 Olympic Games. Sharply characterised, richly atmospheric and completely engrossing. * JOHN PRESTON, author of THE DIG *
