"Mick Herron never tells a suspense story in the expected way, which is why his new novel, Reconstruction , reads as much like a puzzle mystery as it does a thriller . . . unpleasant things are bound to happen, and they do-but not until Herron has finished surprising us . . . there is no hiding under the desk."- The New York Times Book Review "This is a great one-sitting suspense tale filled with plausible yet stunning twists as nothing proves to be like it seems. . . . Mick Herron provides an exhilarating taut thriller that will land on most short lists for one of the best of the year."- The Mystery Gazette

A really good book. It takes a few pages at the beginning to introduce all the characters and bring them together, but stay with it -- the resulting story is a real thriller with plenty of twists and turns. I enjoyed it immensely.
