'A tremendous novel - droll, savvy, original. An invigorating blast
of fiction' * William Boyd *
'A superbly entertaining brain-twister' * The Times *
'This is a novel of ideas [...] Sam Leith pulls it off with admirable imaginative stamina, helped along by sharply observed and entertaining writing' * Independent *
'Witty and inventive, like southing out of Hitchcock by way of Carl Hiassen, this tale of mayhem, murder and mistaken identity is a hugely entertaining, freewheeling riff on the paranoid, conspiracy driven American psyche' * Mail on Sunday *
