    — The New Yorker, Oct 10 2022

    — Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review), Jul 8 2022

    — The Guardian, Feb 12 2022
  • “Miller keeps readers engaged...This is escapism at a compelling level.”
    — The Minneapolis Star Tribune, Jul 13 2020

    — Historical Novel Society, Nov 4 2019
  • “Mr. Miller strikes an impressive balance between adventure and atmosphere. As in a good thriller, madness bubbles beneath the surface of the scenes...But while the threat of violence keeps the story’s wheels in motion, its greatest pleasures owe to its unhurried, ambulatory...
    — The Wall Street Journal, Oct 18 2019
