"Andrew Gross has always been a great storyteller, and this one,
THE SABOTEUR, is his best yet. The good news is that Gross has more
than succeeded; the bad news is that you'll be up all night reading
THE SABOTEUR. Gross truly makes history come alive with sharp
dialogue and a deeply-felt evocation of time and place: It is 1943,
Norway, and you are there.
--Nelson DeMille "The Saboteur by Andrew Gross is the best, most exciting novel published this year. Action, suspense, heroism, sacrifice for a cause greater than the individual are themes that make this novel the prototype for a true thriller. No fan of action-adventure novels filled with accurate historical detain can fail to add The Saboteur to his must-read list."
--NY Journal of Books "Tension permeates the pages even for readers who know the historical outcome. A terrific story filled with tension and surprises right to the end. That's two World War II winners in a row for Gross."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "From its opening pages, Gross's novel grips readers as they follow the tough-minded and persistent Nordstrum every step of the way. Highly recommended for thriller fans as well as lovers of historical fiction based on true events."
--Library Journal (starred review) "Gross' tempestuous novel tells of the fierce loyalty of true patriots. The action builds tension for ultimate enjoyment."
--RT Book Reviews (4 stars) Gross takes readers back in time to a turbulent and terrifying era. Like his previous novel, The One Man, he immerses the reader in the 1940s with sympathetic characters while focusing on the lone wolf who faces impossible odds, but has no other choice. Healso uses real historical figures and events with some slight name changes, demonstrating that with a talented writer at the helm, the past can truly come alive. The Saboteur is a terrific thriller."
--Associated Press This spine-chilling historical novel is a tribute to ordinary European people who fought the Nazis and Fascists. Andrew Gross is a formidable storyteller who weaves history with heroism and writes an unforgettable story.
--The Washington Book Review At its core the book is an unusually potent mix of characters who mean something to us - we wonder what we might do in their positions - and steadily mounting suspense as very brave men try to pull off a most dangerous mission.
-- Connecticut Post
"This is truly a book that the reader will not be able to put down. Gross shows us the treasure trove of skills and courage these men possessed, and the task that was heaved onto their shoulders. It was literally impossible but, they did it anyway. This particular author brought the characters and the time in history to life, filling the pages with tension, thrills, and more than a few surprises along the way."
