“The English writer Andrew Miller has traversed centuries in his fiction, all the while returning to the eternal conundrums of mortality and despair, guilt and betrayal, love and forgiveness. They occupy the foreground of his work, no matter how large the canvas. Yet for all their gravity, these preoccupations have never weighed down Mr. Miller’s expertly paced novels, each of which is as taut as a thriller... Momentous events occur, certainly, but the atmosphere in such narratives is invariably intimate and introspective. Time after time, characters teeter on the brink of ruin and revelation, though the connection is never that tidy.”
