"Zero Hour in Phnom Penh is political, courageous and perhaps [Moore's] most important work. Moore is a brilliant storyteller and a masterful character inventor."
"The story is fast-paced and entertaining. Even outside of his Bangkok comfort zone, Moore shows he is one of the best chroniclers of the expat diaspora."
--The Daily Yomiuri
"A thriller in which the importance of the single crime shrinks visibly at the sight of mass murder and grand corruption."
--Thomas Klingenmaier, Stuttgarter Zeitung
"Moore writes to entertain, and that he does."
"It was ten years ago in Cambodia, but this great novel sits well after Kandahar, Luanda, Kabul, Baghdad and other places where the brutality of war destroys the souls of humanity."
"A layered novel which transports the reader to the time when this beautifully complex country [Cambodia] is attempting to put the pieces of their broken past back together, while the pieces continue on a perpetual crumble.... A highly entertaining read that will stay in the forefront of your mind long after the book is closed, finished and has found its place back on the bookshelf."
