"Enough intrigue to satisfy every reader. . . . A fantastic debut!"
-RT Book Reviews

"Once you've had a bit, you can't wait for more."

"Pryor's steady and engrossing debut combines Sherlockian puzzle solving with Eric Ambler-like spy intrigue. With a cast of characters you want to know better and a storyline cloaked in World War II betrayals...the author winningly blends contemporary crime with historical topics."
-Library Journal Starred Review and Debut of the Month "[A] well-crafted debut novel. Mark Pryor creates a new hero full of intelligence and charm which mixes well with the ever twisting plot of the story. Each turn of the page is a new piece of the complex puzzle that readers will enjoy fitting together. A leaf out of a classic Agatha Christie novel, mixed with the modern world of crime, is a suspenseful adventure waiting to happen."
-Portland Book Review "This is enjoyable French investigation in which Paris as seen through Hugo's eyes comes to life. Hugo is a solid hero though his inquiry may make him persona non grata and expelled from France. Although the violent abductions and homicides are somewhat muted, the storyline is fast-paced from start to Hugo and Tom confronting their adversary who expects their visit."
-The Mystery Gazette "Stylish, suspenseful, and smart, Mark Pryor's The Bookseller conveys the reader expertly through a puzzle of missing Nazi hunters and drug deals. Fans of Alan Furst will find much to love. As strong and welcome as a hot coffee on a chilly Paris morning. Bibliophiles, Francophiles, and mystery addicts rejoice! The debut of Hugo Marston is one you don't want to miss."
-Steven Sidor, author of Pitch Dark "It had everything I enjoy and more. Paris, books, intrique, thrills, Paris, twisted villians, passionate romance (it IS Paris after all), sinfully delicious foods, fascinating people, a hard driving storyline.... [Pryor] has a gift for describing scenes so perfectly that he makes the readers' senses come alive."
"A real page-turner. This is what thriller writers always aim to produce and so often fail to get right.... You can't ask for better than this."
-San Francisco Book Review "This exciting and well-written novel is the first in a new series and I look forward to additional installments.... Congratulations, Mark Pryor. You've written a real gem!"
-Suspense Magazine
