Praise For…


"Steeped in the paranoia and propaganda of the era, the noir tale draws parallels to the current political and social climate, nationalistic prejudices, and media-disseminated misinformation. . . Well-plotted and -paced, Yelchin’s thriller will be a favorite among readers who have an interest in history and intrigue." —Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Spy Runner

"The action never stops, and readers will be gripped as the narrative thunders to a satisfying conclusion." —Booklist on Spy Runner

"an escalating whirl of chases, crashes, threats, assaults, abductions, blazing gunplay, spies, and counterspies—along with revelations that hardly anyone, even Jake's mom, is what they seem." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on Spy Runner

"Yelchin’s grainy black and white photo illustrations cast ominous shadows and will surely draw browsers into the text." —The Bulletin on Spy Runner

Once upon a time there was a storyteller, whose stories existed in the land of many lakes – that boundless region called Minnesota, where hardy souls have made their living on the water, fertile land and in cities. This storyteller, William Kent Krueger, weaves his stories with characters so rich, so real and so human, the tale leaps off the page and buries deep into your soul. “This Tender Land” is simply a magnificent example of Krueger’s extraordinary gift as a writer. You will find it hard to put down, or even after finishing, hard to stop thinking of Odie, Albert, Mose and Emmy – your guides down the winding rivers in this book. Truly, a masterpiece. - review by Maureen
