DECEPTION by John Altman
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 1, 2003

"Altman (A Game of Spies, 2002, etc.) keeps his multiple balls in the air with deft economy, some twists, and the right ratio of verbs to adjectives."
Modest chase thriller, Altman's third, with abundant international color and great pace. Read full book review >
A GAME OF SPIES by John Altman
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 1, 2001

"Tightly plotted, briskly paced: in its admirable economy what thrillers ought to be and seldom are. For Altman (A Gathering of Spies, 2000), an impressive advance over a just-average debut."
A WWII spy novel good enough for a place in the le Carré tradition. Read full book review >
A GATHERING OF SPIES by John Altman
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: July 1, 2000

"Beatings, shootings, knifings, stranglings, some of it graphically detailed, most of it competently handled—but all of it oh-so-familiar."
A debut suspenser chock-full of the requisite genre elements—plus a lot more gore than even those specs call for. Read full book review >
