    * "There is plenty of action and page-turning suspense (and) much to ponder and reflect on as well." 

    School Library Journal, starred review 

     

    "Hahn's story re-creates the tensions and moral climate of its period in authentic detail. . . . Suspenseful, carefully wrought, and thought-provoking—a fine achievement.
