"Well researched and frighteningly plausible, this is a pacy thriller in the tradition of The Day of the Jackal." Daily Mail "Accomplished ... a superlative thriller ... Rosenheim's career as a writer of intelligent and nuanced thrillers looks very promising indeed." Independent "A chilling and meticulously detailed historical novel... Andrew Rosenheim is set to become a new dark star of the literary thriller with a political edge." -- Andrew Taylor, author of THE AMERICAN BOY "An intriguing story, well told." Literary Review "Andrew Rosenheim's ambitious thriller Fear Itself reveals a little known aspect of the second world war. A young FBI agent, Jimmy Nessheim, risks his life when he's ordered to infiltrate the Bund, a pro-Nazi organisation determined to keep America out of the war." Sunday Times
