9780099557920: The Informant

Autumn 1941: most of the world is at war. America is hovering on the brink.

Special Agent James Nessheim is stuck in Hollywood, working as an adviser to a studio making pro-FBI movies.

And then one his key informants, Japanese-American Billy Osaka, asks to see him urgently. But before they can meet, Osaka vanishes.

Nessheim’s search for Osaka takes him to a Mob-run gambling club, through the dense streets of LA’s Little Tokyo, from the seamy San Pedro docks to the hill-top ranch of a Communist sympathiser.

As Nessheim begins to unravel Osaka’s deadly secrets, he uncovers a chilling conspiracy to push America into the war.

But other people are looking for Osaka too, and are prepared to kill anyone who gets in their way. A lethal race is on.

Review:

"A thrilling storyline and vivid descriptions" ( Publishers Weekly (starred review))

"Andrew Rosenheim’s The Informant is a stylish, ingenious thriller. This is compelling and intelligent fiction, laden with tension and suspense." (Jim Crace, author of this year's Booker long-listed novel, Harvest)

"An elegant story . . . [it is] laced with fine period detail, awareness of the institutional duplicity of Hoover’s FBI and a fine ear for dialogue" ( Daily Mail)

"The ghosts of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler loom large here, as do the classic films Chinatown and Casablanca, lending Rosenheim’s prose a velvety texture." ( Kirkus Reviews)

"Andrew Rosenheim’s The Informant is a wonderfully intelligent and beautifully written historical thriller ? I can’t wait for the next installment in the series!" (Max Byrd, author of The Paris Deadline and California Thriller)

Book Description:

By the acclaimed author of Fear Itself, a compelling thriller set in 1940s America on the eve of Pearl Harbor.
