"A cool, knowing, and quietly devastating thriller that vaults Paul Vidich into the ranks of such thinking-man's spy novelists as Joseph Kanon and Alan Furst. Like them, Vidich conjures not only a riveting mystery but a poignant cast of characters, a vibrant evocation of time and place, and a rich excavation of human paradox."--Stephen Schiff, writer and co-executive producer of the hit FX series, THE AMERICANS "Cold War spy fiction in the grand tradition--neatly plotted betrayals in that shadow world where no one can be trusted and agents are haunted by their own moral compromises."--Joseph Kanon, New York Times bestselling author of Istanbul Passage and The Good German "Paul Vidich is a very strong new voice in spy fiction. The writing is powerful, the setting real, the characters magnetic. Vidich portrays the paranoia of America's anti-communist moment brilliantly, and he captures the grey, gritty realities of counterintelligence. If you love Charles McCarry, read Vidich."--Adam Brookes, Author of Night Heron "THE GOOD ASSASSIN opens up Hemingway's Cuba. Possessing Alan Furst's attention for period detail and the deft character touches of John Le Carr�, Vidich has quickly carved out a place for himself among the very first rank of espionage writers. It's a masterful effort and the author's best work to date."--Michael Harvey, New York Times bestselling author of THE CHICAGO WAY and BRIGHTON "Taut storytelling ... Reminiscent of old-school John Le Carr� spy thrillers."--Judith D. Collins Must Reads "An Honorable Man is that rare beast: a good, old fashioned spy novel. But like the best of its kind, it understands that the genre is about something more: betrayal, paranoia, unease, and sacrifice. For a book about the Cold War, it left me with a warm, satisfied glow."--John Connolly, #1 Internationally Bestselling Author of A Song of Shadows "An Honorable Man is an unputdownable mole hunt written in terse, noirish prose, driving us inexorably forward. In George Mueller, Paul Vidich has created a perfectly stoic companion to guide us through the intrigues of the red-baiting Fifties. And the story itself has the comforting feel of a classic of the genre, rediscovered in some dusty attic, a wonderful gift from the past."--Olen Steinhauer, New York Times bestselling author of ALL THE OLD KNIVES Paul Vidich's tense, muscular thriller delivers suspense and intelligence circa 1953: Korea, Stalin, the cold war, rage brilliantly, and the hall of mirrors confronting reluctant agent George Mueller reflects myriad questions. Just how personal is the political? Is the past ever past? An Honorable Man asks universal questions whose shadows linger even now. Paul Vidich's immensely assured debut, a requiem to a time, is intensely alive, dark, silken with facts, replete with promise.--Jayne Anne Phillips, New York Times bestselling author of Quiet Dell and Machine Dreams
