Pavel and I Press Reviews

‘A gripping espionage thriller very much in the uncertain, paranoid vein of The Third Man … It keeps you hooked on its mysteries by rationing the truth more severely than its characters’ coffee … an entirely guilt-free treat’ Independent
 
‘An espionage thriller, complete with double-crosses, torture, prostitution, a monkey and summary executions … There is much to like about this book’ The Times
