Reviews

"An engaging tale of father-and-son redemption wrapped up in a pedal-to-metal thriller that's told with much humor and great enthusiasm, Thomson's Once a Spy gives the tried-and-true secret-agent suspense a fresh twist." --The Birmingham News

"An important debut--as well as a welcome breath of fresh air." --Lincoln Child

"Thomson has made a spy story that sticks." --Dallas Morning News "Nonstop action, thrills, and more escapes than Houdini in his lifetime." --Chicago Sun-Times "I like my spy thrillers cold, and Once A Spy is as cold as they come, but with a warm sense of honest family dishonesty and violent sense of humor. . . . A wonderfully fun novel of discovery, matching explosive apartments with explosive revelations."--Rick Kleffel, "The Agony Column" "This tale of a doddering old spy and his slightly addled son has plenty of twists and turns, and you'll find it very difficult to put aside." -- The Globe and Mail "Gripping. . . . A surfeit of suspense, plot twists, mysterious murders, dangerous chases, narrow escapes, thwarted villains and a few triumphs by an unlikely hero or two." --Birmingham Weekly "A thriller with an edgy tone. . . . Heart-stopping, full of surprises, dangerous but crazy/funny at the same time. Roadrunner meets Columbo." --Newark Star-Ledger "Once A Spy is the most enjoyable book I've read this year. Utterly original, it is an adrenaline-fueled concoction of sidesplitting humor and genuine suspense. Think Carl Hiassen taking on John Le Carr and the winner is the reader. What a find! I can't imagine not loving this gem of a novel!" --Christopher Reich "It takes a huge talent to blow dust from the corners of today's comfortable thriller genre. Keith Thomson has that talent, in spades. Once a Spy is an important debut--as well as a welcome breath of fresh air." --Lincoln Child "Once a Spy is a wild ride." --James Bamford "With great characters, nonstop action, and dark humor, all told in a fresh, energetic voice, Keith Thomson's Once A Spy is the most appealing debut thriller I've read in years." --Chuck Hogan
