Quotes & Awards

  • “Charles McCarry has been compared to John le Carré—but maybe le Carré should be compared to McCarry. The Shanghai Factor is certainly the best-written spy thriller you will read this year. A perfect blend of sex, intrigue, exotic locales, and deadly danger.”

    Nelson DeMille

  • “Charles McCarry is better than John le Carré. Which makes him perhaps the best ever. And this is his first long-form fiction in years. Excited yet? You should be. The Shanghai Factor is hypnotic, engaging, subtle, and deeply, deeply satisfying.”

    Lee Child

  • “Meticulous, intelligent prose is the real star of this excellent espionage thriller from former CIA operations officer McCarry…This book is a must-read for genre aficionados and McCarry’s many fans.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A nuanced, devilishly intricate thriller…Meticulous plotting, literate prose and mordant wit make this a thriller for connoisseurs of the genre.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • The Shanghai Factor is wildly entertaining and further proof that McCarry is a modern master of the genre on a par with le Carré and Robert Littell.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • A 2014 Barry Award Nominee
