"Edgar-winner Berney (The Long and Faraway Gone) takes a familiar plot in unexpected directions in this moving novel.... This is much more than just another conspiracy thriller."
—Publishers Weekly review
"Berney bends his notes exquisitely, playing with the melody, building his marvelously rich characters while making us commit completely to the love story, even though we hear the melancholy refrain and see the noir cloud lurking in the sky. Pitch-perfect fiction."
