"Teasing echoes of real people… John's success in capturing the tone of American politics… rather in the way that The West Wing does… Quite brilliant, quite a devious twist…It is bigger than real life… more than a rattling good thriller. It will keep you biting your nails, and staying up to finish one more chapter. It flings in our faces certain big challenges about the American political system. I don’t want to embarrass John but this had elements that reminded me of the young John le Carré… Major marks, John, for capturing the tone of American politics and for a plot line that will keep your readers guessing."

"...a naked grab for power is turned into a superb piece of drama and political intrigue...well-crafted as it is eminently believable. With the sophistication of John le Carré and the pace of Jeffrey Archer... a 21st century story of treason and betrayal" (Rob Minshull)
"John M. Green is the new Michael Crichton... but better!"
