Reviews

"A meditation on the secrets we keep... Red Joan's strength lies in the complex personal relationships that underpin the spying game... A powerfully-written exploration of the far-reaching consequences that even the smallest-seeming actions can have" -- Kaite Welsh * Literary Review *
"A brilliant spy novel, with an unlikely culprit and a deft, involving plot...tense, beautifully pitched and very moving novel" -- Eithne Farry * Marie Claire *
"Sensitive spy thriller... Finely detailed and resolutely sensitive... This excellent period novel still carries some considerable resonance in the age of Bradley Manning" -- Andrzej Lukowski * Metro *
"If you loved William Boyd's Restless, you'll enjoy this" -- Viv Groskop * Red *
"Compulsive reading... Rooney's approach it to make this a very personal story for Joan. There's love, loss, betrayal, friendship and secrets galore and it gives a believable insight on how one, normal person might be let to betray her country. The true mark of the story is that you find yourself thinking that you might have done exactly what Joan did in those circumstances" * The Bookbag *
