is action-packed from page one and keeps this momentum throughout the entire book. Other elements like mystery, romance and suspense are woven throughout the book and add a layer of depth and credibility to the story. Another great aspect of the novel is the author's attention to historic detail. Espionage
is a great book that will entertain a wide audience of readers." - The Deseret News
"This is a great story from many perspectives. Though it is clearly historical, it is more than that. There are some satisfying, non-preachy lessons on forgiveness, listening to the Spirit, and the universal potential for goodness or evil in all men. There's a gradual awareness of the distinction between revenge and repentance. There's heart-stopping danger and action. An exploration of different types of love weaves its way through the horror of war. Though this story is plot driven and action oriented, satisfactory character development occurs as well. Both Jacques and Peter mature and their characters grow in greater self-awareness, a higher understanding of God, more compassion for others, and confidence in their ability to accomplish the seemingly impossible." - Meridian Magazine
