‘Miller’s gripping novel about truth, lies and power is a searing indictment of our times’ Spectator

Publisher Review

Miller writes terse, memorable prose with well sketched characters...the historic action has the tone of a spy thriller and the 2017 part is filled with tense personal drama. * Times Literary Supplement * A tremendous novel - taut, compelling, reeking of authenticity. A.D. Miller writes with exemplary precision and sophistication. Independence Square is an unsparing examination of human beings caught up and destroyed by historical forces they can barely comprehend. -- William Boyd Miller's gripping novel, about truth, lies and power is a searing indictment of our times...a book about dirty money and the manipulation of politics, about a world where anything is possible and where even a war can be 'hallucinated into reality'. And it is about power... This, then, is a story not about a revolution in Eastern Europe but about the way we live now. * Spectator * At its best, Independence Square made me think of a 21st-century Graham Greene novel, an absorbing thriller informed by emotional intelligence and a deep understanding of geopolitics. -- Marcel Theroux * Guardian * Utterly gripping, a novel with its finger on the pulse of geopolitics that still manages to move deeply. * Observer, *Books to Look Our For in 2020* *
