"Complex...fascinating...Firefly offers strong female characters, a protagonist who should appeal to middle-aged readers of all sexes, fascinating details on covert operations, intriguing interplay among characters and unexpected developments that bend the unspoken rules of who lives and who dies in a thriller...all these elements make Firefly something out of the ordinary." -Washington Post "A first-class page turner."-Atlanta Journal Constitution"A deft thriller...impeccably authentic!"--Library Journal"A top-notch thriller from a top-notch writer. The Firefly may be Deutermann's best novel to date-reminiscent of The Day of the Jackal."-Nelson DeMille"Addictively enthralling...(wait till you get to the jaw-dropping ending!)." -Entertainment Weekly
