What the Critics Say

"In Agents of Treachery, Otto Penzler doesn't just get A-plus talent - he does the real magic trick - he gets A-plus stories out of them. Embrace your inner spy and join the secret club." (Brad Meltzer)

"Only Otto Penzler could bring together this dream team of espionage fiction - the short stories by some of America's most original thriller writers constitute an instant classic. Joseph Finder might be said to have supplied the tone for this splendid collection with the first line of his yarn: 'I can't shake the feeling that they're up to something.' The members of this dream team all are!" (Robert Littell)

    "Ok Tales!!"
    What did you like best about Agents of Treachery? What did you like least?

    It has several tales that really pulled me in, although I do not remember them since I have read several books since. It was about what I expect from an anthology like this. A few really good stories and the rest are ones that do not appeal to me.


    Would you be willing to try another book from the authors? Why or why not?

    Yes...they are all accomplished very good writers. Same appeal to me and some don't, but I would buy another book by the same authors.

    "Not as good as I'd hoped"

    The authors all seemed to go to the "dark side" for this one. Most of them write books where the characters overcome significant odds to come out on top. Almost all of these short stories seemed to have the good guys lose. Perhaps, they were all trying to be more realistic. Unfortunately, I read these types of novels for enjoyment and escapism. I see enough "reality" in daily life.
