"With dialogue that can go off like gunfire and a streak of
nostalgia that feels timeless, this book takes its place among
espionage novels as an instant classic."
--Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
"Istanbul Passage bristles with authenticity. Joseph Kanon has a unique and admirable talent: he brilliantly marries suspense and historical fact, wrapping them around a core of pure human drama, while making it seem effortless. This isn't just talent; it's magic."--Olen Steinhauer, New York Times bestselling author of The Tourist
