  • Praise for Stewart O’Nan

    Praise for City of Secrets

    A probing, keening thriller. . .though rigorously unsentimental, the text seethes with unresolved emotions. . .the complex moral issues it raises linger unsettlingly.

    Kirkus Reviews (starred)

    I’ve been a Stewart O’Nan fan since his very first novel, and never more so than with his latest. 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

    Stewart O’Nan’s City of Secrets will keep you up all night reading – what a beautifully crafted novel.
