Inhaltsangabe: From master storyteller Stewart O'Nan comes a timely moral thriller about the Jewish underground res....

Rezension: Excellent . . .a little jewel, wonderfully sparse, moody and uneasy, reminiscent of the delicious, frayed-collar noir of le Carre s The Spy Who Came in From the Cold. . .You can smell the squally desert wind that bends the cypress trees on the Jerusalem hills but never brings the rain.City of Secrets makes for great summer reading.
Jason Matthews, The New York Times Book Review
Post-World War II Jerusalem is the provocative setting for Stewart O Nan s atmospheric thriller. . .a richly-imagined story. . .may be one of O Nan s best. Its strength lies in his ability, as always, to take us inside the minds and souls of characters, real or imagined.
The Chicago Tribune
Masterful. . .its impact is deceptively large because O Nan has something that can t be taught to a writer and can indeed by unlearned by talented writers: the gift of authenticity.
The Washington Post
A fine piece of storytelling. . .a work in the exotic historic mode of Graham Greene, with the drier and grittier tone of Raymond Chandler. . .the moral struggle in City of Secrets is timeless and international.
The Boston Globe
Enthralling. . .O Nan takes a clear-eyed and unsentimental look at an astonishing slice of history one that is strikingly echoed by the heartbreaking events still unfolding in the Middle East.
The Seattle Times
A fast-moving story that brings fresh perspective to a moment of historical significance . . . O Nan s storytelling, once again, demonstrates why he has earned a place among our most illustrious writers.
St. Louis Post Dispatch
A search for love and justice after the Holocaust. . . I ll not soon forget Brand and his quest for something worth believing in. . . worth applauding, too, is Mr. O Nan s ability to realize a complex female character in Eva.
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Stewart O Nan s City of Secrets will keep you up all night reading what a beautifully crafted novel.
Alan Furst, New York Times bestselling author of Mission to Paris
Finely wrought and morally complex, O'Nan's considerable story-telling powers are masterfully deployed here. With deft strokes, he evokes the tensions and tragedies of Mandate Jerusalem, riven then as now by the fault lines of community and conscience.
Geraldine Brooks, author of The Secret Chord
I've been a Stewart O'Nan fan since his very first novel, and never more so than with his latest. In City of Secrets, O'Nan takes his mastery of language and depth of character in a fresh direction: a richly nuanced suspense novel, set in an immensely intriguing post-war Jerusalem. A remarkable book."
Chris Pavone, author of The Expats
Imaginative and nimble, O Nan is a master of narrative distillation, and in his latest taut novel, set in British-ruled Jerusalem immediately after WWII, he achieves thriller-like suspense. . .[an] engrossing portrait of an innocent caught in the web of history.
ALA Booklist (starred)
A probing, keening thriller. . .though rigorously unsentimental, the text seethes with unresolved emotions. . .the complex moral issues it raises linger unsettlingly.
Kirkus Reviews (starred)
A Conradian espionage thriller leavened with existential introspection. . .O Nan s novel works on several levels, but it is especially memorable as a story where the tortured emotions of its characters are indistinguishable from the turmoil of the chaotic events that overwhelm them.
