"Superb... weaves winningly between the present and the second
world war, between Tangiers and Paris." -- Alex Preston * Observer
"`[Paris Echo is] brimming with Faulks's deep affection for Paris. His outsider's interest in quirky street names and quaint corners transports his readers there too. And in the end, the book is powered by his ambition to evoke that place, its ghostliness, those spectres of history, lurking around every beautiful avenue" * Guardian *
"A brilliantly plotted and occasionally hallucinatory novel, in which the author's genius for literary ventriloquism is shown off to startling effect." * New Statesman *
"Paris Echo doesn't disappoint... Faulks is doing what he does best, marrying careful historical research with a good ear for dialogue" -- Melissa Katsoulis * The Times *
"[An] exquisite book... a deeply affecting, wholly unsolemn treatment of some of the 20th century's darkest moments." * Daily Mail *
