Praise for Dan Fesperman's The Letter Writer "A penetrating portrait. . . . Saturated with color and humming with life." --The New York Times Book Review "Gritty, nostalgic." --The Wall Street Journal "A cracking good yarn." --The News & Observer (Raleigh) "Stunning. . . . Danger, intrigue, politics, and spies are all masterfully woven for the reader's entertainment. . . . Addictive, fast-paced, and thrilling." --San Francisco Book Review "Makes New York come alive with conspiracy and mystery. . . . [Fesperman] has created a character who will stay with you long after the last shot is fired." --Kirkus Reviews "The WWII alliance between the Mafia and the U.S. government has been explored in crime fiction before . . . but never in such compelling fashion as Fesperman does here. . . . What makes this novel shine is the way Fesperman combines it with the mobsters-as-patriots angle and with the rich character of the letter writer. A multifaceted mix of mystery and historical fiction." --Booklist "Intelligent . . . Fesperman shows a skilled hand at creating the detail of wartime New York. . . . The likable and well-drawn [protagonist] will go over well with readers, especially those fond of historicals." --Publishers Weekly "The Letter Writer is a unique blend of a scholarly sleuth teamed with a Sherlock Holmes-like chameleon in a time of history ripe for building stories of suspense around. . . . The combination is pure chemistry, and pure entertainment." --Bookreporter "The brilliant Dan Fesperman takes us into a world of intrigue. . . . Don't miss this one--it's sure to be on my list of the year's best books." --Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
