Book Review Blurb: Safe Houses by Dan Fesperman

Sometimes a book is just SO GOOD that I want to tell you about it, even though my book review is short and not really a full review but more of a blurb… This is one of those.

I LOVE old school spy books, and this latest Fesperman offered that plus a fun back-and-forth blending a contemporary tale in with the old. It’s a format that I’ve seen more and more lately, and it doesn’t always work. Fortunately, Fesperman is a strong enough writer/plotter to figure out how to keep the pacing and drama in balance with the multiple narrators/narrative streams – and he does so in a way that teases with just enough detail to keep you guessing, even when some of what you are guessing at in the contemporary timeline has already been alluded to if not indirectly covered in the historical… It’s a great tale, populated by characters for whom lying is an art form, and the dance between the lines of what everyone says and what they mean is a tango sure to keep you not only engaged but immersed!

Thanks to the Penguin First to Read Program for my review copy!
