“A Hollywood mover and shaker takes center stage in a brisk tale of spies and counterspies.. . . In a narrative that reads like an espionage thriller, Gill follows his subject’s peripatetic travels and interactions with malevolent, powerful—and sometimes bumbling—characters.” ― Kirkus
"With this fascinating and detailed narrative, Gill (American history & culture Univ. of Amsterdam) proves the adage that truth is stranger than fiction. . . Gill’s captivating, fast-paced narrative reads like a thriller and will leave readers wanting more. Highly recommended for those who love stories of espionage.” ― Library Journal
“Readers of Hollywood Double Agent may come for the glitter, but they'll stay for the intrigue. Although Gill's book reads like a Cold War thriller, at heart it's the amazing true story of an American dream gone wrong. . . . Like a multiplex blockbuster, this biography of a Russian-born Hollywood player turned spy has it all: intrigue, glamour, humor, romance and danger.” ― Shelf Awareness
“[Jonathan Gill’s] work is convincing and extensive, in addition to being well-written and perceptive. His subject, Boris Morrow, was an empty vessel who could be turned left or right depending on how it satisfied his personal interest.” ― New York Journal of Books
“Mr. Gill has done justice to this impossible-to-invent character and in the process has brought to life the world of ideologues and opportunists in which Morros made his peculiar mark.” ― The Wall Street Journal
