`The Saboteur is completely engrossing and elegantly told, which means any reader of this work will inevitably want more and more' Washington Post `A mesmerizing book that builds up propulsive momentum until its final twists. It was a joy to disappear into this story. Like only the very best historical biographers, Paul Kix has turned years of deep reporting into a tightly coiled narrative that you never want to put down' Eli Saslow, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of Ten Letters: The Stories Americans Tell Their President `Kix had to do first-class detective work using primary sources to create this riveting story. Fans of World War II history will eagerly read this story, which is almost as exciting as a James Bond novel' Library Journal `Set in motion by a steamed-open letter and a burning hatred of Hitler, a dashing young aristocrat embarks on a campaign of clandestine warfare. The Saboteur sounds like a World War II spy thriller, but in fact it is a rip-roaring true story, wonderfully told' Mitchell Zuckoff, New York Times bestselling author of 13 Hours and Lost in Shangri-La `A winner: the stories are fascinating, the pages nearly turn themselves, and La Rochefoucauld is a true hero' Kirkus Reviews (starred review) `Kix's sharp, well-paced writing is perfect for telling La Rochefoucauld's story. But this is more than a gripping yarn of daring-do. La Rochefoucauld was a complex character, and Kix's portrait is nuanced and moving... [posing] the big questions: What is duty? What is courage? What is loyalty?' BookPage
