Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Third-person narration, circular structure, and archetypal characters lend this beautifully written literary mystery the feel of a modern fable.” Booklist
“Part academic satire, part military history, part philosophical meditation, part detective tale, part rollicking caper…There is sprightly, funny satire here and, beneath it, a surprising vein of poignancy.” Kirkus Reviews
