Review:

'Hogge's absorbing narrative...reads like a historical novel, but it was no fiction' -- The Guardian

'a melodramatic read...the final chapters make moving, even tragic reading' -- Evening Standard

'a vivid picture of the stresses of operating in secret, under false identities, in constant fear of betrayal' -- Sunday Times

'lucidly argued...Hogge brings the characters vividly to life' -- Daily Express

'the hazards faced by English Catholics returning to their homeland are powerfully evoked...compelling storytelling' -- The Observer

'vivid and moving...Hogge is brilliant at evoking the climate of suspicion and fear' -- The Spectator
