Editorial Reviews

Review

Throughout the novel, Vera wonders who she will be should she survive this assignment, but even in her deep uncertainty, it's quite clear that she is already the character readers have been waiting for. A riveting, satisfying novel.--Kirkus Reviews

When we first meet Vera Kelly, she's a troubled 1950s teenager who's overdosed on Equanil. Next she's in explosive 1960s Buenos Aires after being recruited by the CIA ("I could be charming if I wanted to. There were basic tricks"). Her past and present are told in alternating chapters, with all the edgy fun of classic noir but in an original voice that's fresh, brisk, and snappy. Hugely buzzing.--Library Journal, Most Anticipated Books of Spring/Summer

A buzzing, smoky, gin-soaked charmer.--Library Journal, ALA Hot Picks

Sardonic, intelligent, and thrillingly original, Rosalie Knecht has not only revitalized the female spy novel with her feisty, indeterminable heroine, she's also joyfully queered it. I loved this book and I loved Vera. Read this book right now!"--Courtney Maum, author of I AM HAVING SO MUCH FUN HERE WITHOUT YOU

Who Is Vera Kelly? is the twisty, literary, woman-driven spy novel you've always wanted to read. Vera Kelly hopscotches from Brooklyn to Buenos Aires, fueled by gin and cigarettes, on the run from her past and equipped with a case of listening devices. But this is no ordinary adventure novel: Rosalie Knecht is a sensitive and gifted writer with a lyrical voice that imbues this dazzling novel unexpected emotional depth. --Amy Stewart, New York Times bestselling author of Girl Waits With Gun --This text refers to the library edition.
