Press Reviews

'Edward Wilson seems poised to inherit the mantle of John le Carre'

'We attempt to second-guess both Catesby and his crafty creator, and are soundly outfoxed at every turn...Wilson is now firmly ensconced in the new firmament of espionage writing'

'Edward Wilson himself is a most assured writer, adept more than most in this factual/fiction genre combining first-rate characterisation and a depth of detail that entwines itself around real and supposed events. This is a fantastic read.'
