[A] gripping espionage thriller... An addictive cocktail of action, romance and politics. * Observer * Our Friends in Berlin brings to the fore all of Quinn's talents - gripping storylines, plot twists, thorough research and elegant prose. * The Times * An eye for a plot, a profound gift for character and a faultless sense of period and place: Anthony Quinn was always going to write first-rate thrillers, and Our Friends in Berlin is pure pleasure. -- David Hare Those in search of a smart, tautly rendered, atmospheric beach read should pack a copy now. * Metro * The best spy novel set in wartime London. A masterpiece... Anthony's book is wonderful. He is a master at creating page-turning tension. Our Friends in Berlin grips the reader from the very first page and won't let go. Good authors create period authenticity; superb authors add their own creative mood music to that. Anthony Quinn's Blitz-battered London is more than black out curtains, blast tape and wrecked buildings, it is an eerie setting of Hitchcockian menace. -- Edward Wilson, author of A Very British Ending
