Editorial Reviews

Review

"Absolutely stunning. Harrowing and deeply thought-provoking. This beautifully written WWII novel echoes the best existential novels of a bygone age. Brilliant!" -- Rhys Bowen, author of In Farleigh Field


"With echoes of Alan Furst's French Resistance novels and Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, The Sixth Man will be one of the most memorable and intriguing novels you have read this year. Six characters with much to feel of ashamed of in their pasts come to terms with death and the need for repentance and love."  -- Eliza Graham, author of The One I Was.

"Imagine George Simenon unravelling half-dozen confessions set in a Vichy prison. Rupert Colley does them one better by playing Russian roulette with the lives of six condemned French resistants who have to choose one amongst themselves not to die but to live. Read it in a sitting. It's a novel to give you the chills." -- Alex Rosenberg, author of The Girl from Krakow and Autumn in Oxford

"Rupert Colley's The Sixth Man is a poignant fable that reminds us of the frailty of our morality.  Through richly drawn characters, Colley shows the power of confession and forgiveness and the strength of the human character.  It is a tale of triumph set during one of history's darkest nights." -- Kelly Durham, author of Berlin Calling.

"It has been years since I read a story that not only kept my interest and moved me, but forced me to think about life on a deeper level like this one. 'The Sixth Man' has a strong moral to teach, but does it in such a subtle way that it is almost imperceptible. The writing is spare, but powerful; the story simple, but profound." -- Historical Novel Society
