Zusatztext “Excellent . . .a little jewel, wonderfully sparse, moody and uneasy, reminiscent of the delicious, frayed-collar noir of le Carré’s The Spy Who Came in From the Cold . . .You can smell the squally desert wind that bends the cypress trees on the Jerusalem hills but never brings the rain.  City of Secrets makes for great summer reading.” – Jason Matthews, The New York Times Book Review “Post-World War II Jerusalem is the provocative setting for Stewart O’Nan’s atmospheric thriller. . .a richly-imagined story. . .may be one of O’Nan’s best.  Its strength lies in his ability, as always, to take us inside the minds and souls of characters, real or imagined.” — The Chicago Tribune “Masterful. . .its impact is deceptively large because O’Nan has something that can’t be taught to a writer – and can indeed by unlearned by talented writers:  the gift of authenticity.” —The Washington Post “A fine piece of storytelling. . .a work in the exotic historic mode of Graham Greene, with the drier and grittier tone of Raymond Chandler. . .the moral struggle in City of Secrets is timeless and international.” — The Boston Globe   “Enthralling. . .O’Nan takes a clear-eyed and unsentimental look at an astonishing slice of history – one that is strikingly echoed by the heartbreaking events still unfolding in the Middle East.” — The Seattle Times “A fast-moving story that brings fresh perspective to a moment of historical significance . . .

In City of Secrets , O'Nan takes his mastery of language and depth of character in a fresh direction: a richly nuanced suspense novel, set in an immensely intriguing post-war Jerusalem. A remarkable book."  – Chris Pavone, author of The Expats “Imaginative and nimble, O’Nan is a master of narrative distillation, and in his latest taut novel, set in British-ruled Jerusalem immediately after WWII, he achieves thriller-like suspense. . .[an] engrossing portrait of an innocent caught in the web of history.” – ALA Booklist (starred) “A probing, keening thriller. . .though rigorously unsentimental, the text seethes with unresolved emotions. . .the complex moral ...
