Praise for The Old Man:

An Indie Next Now in Paperback pick

“[A] harrowing hunt-and-hide adventure . . . Nobody writes chase scenes like Perry.”―Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

“Save space already on your Thriller-of-the-Year ballot for Thomas Perry’s The Old Man. It’ll rivet you . . . Author Perry has won praise for his earlier thrillers―and deserves yet another helping for this tasty tale.”St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“This is hardly the first time that Perry has written about a seeming Everyman with a hidden wealth of special training and ratiocinative ability, but the Old Man, who has many names on call and changes them as situations dictate, is surely one of the most appealing . . . This one’s all about suspense and narrative propulsion, but the Old Man will remind Perry devotees of Chinese Gordon, the wacky hero of Metzger’s Dog, Perry’s Edgar-winning comic caper novel. Both men are crazy good thinkers and planners and improvisers, and it’s pure pleasure to watch them at work. Another delight from a writer who never disappoints.”Booklist (starred review)

“Perry steers this cat-and-mouse adventure across the United States and, eventually, back to Libya, with verve, including just enough verisimilitude to keep intact the willing suspension of disbelief.”Christian Science Monitor

“Swift, unsentimental, and deeply satisfying. Liam Neeson would be perfect in the title role.”Kirkus Reviews

“Engrossing . . . Readers will eagerly keep turning the pages.”Publishers Weekly

“There are few better ways to begin a new year than with a Thomas Perry novel . . . The Old Man is certainly one of Perry’s better books, which is high praise, considering that he has yet to write a bad one . . . This is a perfect read to raise your pulse and, yes, your paranoia level.”Bookreporter

“Since his Edgar Award-winning debut novel, The Butcher's Boy . . . Thomas Perry has put together a rewarding string of suspense novels with as much cool competence as some of his best protagonists bring to their work . . . Perry's pacing is impeccable. The Old Man rips along with plenty of typical tradecraft details, wet work and disguises, but also takes a breather with interludes in Chicago for the old man to find romance . . . Then it's back to dodging and killing with enough plot twists to keep the train rolling down the track. Perry's a real pro . . . A smart, well-paced thriller.”Shelf Awareness

“Riveting . . . Dan’s story takes us on a tense, often chilling ride across the United States and all the way to hostile regions of Libya.”Big Thrill
