Description
In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, a think-tank researcher named Paul Crane meets with an elderly man, in this novel from the Edgar and Barry Award–winning author of The Chatham School Affair and Red Leaves. Thomas Danforth, now 91, has advice for the ambitious young Crane, who is intent on staging a retaliatory strike. Danforth then spins a tale of his life in 1939, when he ran the family import business, until a friend asked him to help stem the rising tide of Nazism by providing a place where a "brilliant woman" could receive training in firearms and explosives.

"[Thomas] Cook's plot is as captivating as his characters. It's rendered in an often ear-pleasing literary style—'the sewer's most pernicious flotsam'—and laced with dozens of intriguing historical anecdotes."—Kirkus Reviews
