    " Pierre Brossard, though given a pardon for his part in the killing of Jews in World War 2, is a man on the run in his native France. Forty years later there are threats on his life. Can this escape artist trust those who have given him safety in the past? From the jacket: "In Brossard, he (Moore) has succeeded in giving abysmal evil an indelibly human face" (My emotions for or against the protagonist swerved from escape to escape.) "and in the figures of both Brossard's protectors and pursuers, he illumines the double-faced nature of loyalty and vengeance..." "

    " Plot and setting to my liking. Felt like I should have liked the book more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristi Jones | 2/2/2014

    " Decent premise, but cardboard characters and a whimpering plot made this a dud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 1/23/2014

    " A well-paced thriller in which an aging Nazi collaborator form wartime France is on the run from unknown assassins. A damning meditation on the relationship between the Catholic Church and the Vichy government, and post-war efforts to shelter those who actively co-operated in the genocide of Europe's Jews. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daryl | 1/20/2014

    " Taut, finely-drawn tale of a WWII Nazi collaborator on the run in 1980's France. Little 'sympathy for the devil' here, but plenty of suspense; a good read by an accomplished author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheryl | 1/7/2014

    " This was good but depressing. I'm not sure if there were any "good guys" in this book at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nate | 12/27/2013

    " Unexceptional, a bit plodding, with the usual numbers of unbelievable things that happen and undermine the plot. Great setting and examination of the Catholic fondness of fascism, with a too little, too late twist at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamara | 12/22/2013

    " I wish this was a nonfiction book--that would make it even better. As it is, I really enjoyed the story. I'm sure these things did happen in some form or other. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie Lynn | 12/14/2013

    " It was just a book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Alice | 12/14/2013

    " Thriller. Nazi hunting in France , allegedly patterned after a real case. A close look at the hunted and how he thinks: how he justifies who he is. A not-so-flattering glimpse of the French police department and the Catholic Church. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan | 5/31/2013

    " An unusual sort of detective story. If you're into detective mysteries, I recommend this one as a change-of-pace from the standard procedural. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chum | 4/11/2013

    " Very tightly and concisely written and fast-paced literary thriller about a 70-year-old man tried for WWII war crimes in France and his race to remain hidden. Recommended for those times you want to read a challenging book that is hard to put down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessie | 2/15/2013

    " A war criminal sheltered in part by the Church is hunted by the French. Delves into the complex motivations of the French affected by WWII and their sympathies. "

    " A good mystery/thriller - quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tamara Bennett | 5/22/2012

    " slow, but an interesting plot. couldn't always keep track of who was who. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lewis Weinstein | 11/15/2011

    " A powerful indictment of the Church during and after WWII. One of Brian Moore's best. I was fortunate to hear him read the first chapter at the 92nd St Y in NYC many years ago. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glory Hill | 8/22/2011

    " I am making myself read the books I have collected over the past year. So, this is a good book if you can read/and or speak French or German; which I don't. I'm glad I pushed through it, its a "Disturbing insight into the world of war crimes against humanity" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cateline | 7/19/2011

    " Well written, but a bit of old hat, or maybe I've just read too many war criminal on the run, helped by you fill in the blank. There were a few twists and turns to the story, and I have to give it at least three stars for that. "

    " Pretty interesting story, and it was enjoyable to listen to, but it never really hooked me. "
