''A multifaceted protagonist who's a refreshing change from formulaic genre leads lifts this gritty spy thriller from Dudley…Fans of Alan Furst and Joseph Kanon will find familiar pleasures.'' --Publishers Weekly
''A fast-paced and thrilling read…The conspiracy theories explored by Agent Hawkins are even more exciting when viewed in the context of our own government tensions, adding an extra level of intrigue…Hawkins' innermost feelings add tension and interest, playing well into the overall plot and inevitable surprise ending. A classic thriller full of twists and turns, New York Station is relevant and thought provoking.'' --Foreword Reviews
''This is a thrilling WWII spy adventure with a classic love-versus-duty story, robust characters, and a nice sense of time and place (the author makes sure we know we're in America of 1940 without a lot of window dressing). A good, solid thriller.'' --Booklist
