Review:

Gripping from the outset, as tightly structured as an intense theatrical experience, this is brilliant writing. Kotler - uncompromising and comprised - is a fascinating, provocative figure -- Tom Rob Smith A work of high moral seriousness dispatched with a gripping elegance . . . Bezmozgis's story of fallen saints and redeemed outcasts is, to put it plainly, the work of a great writer -- Joshua Ferris, author of 'To Rise Again at a Decent Hour' Just when we think we've arrived at the heart of the story's moral complexity, Bezmozgis cuts again and lays bare yet another layer . . . one of the foremost writers of his generation -- Ben Fountain, author of Billy Lynn's Halftime Walk A compelling tale of reckoning. Bezmozgis is a smart, taut writer . . . His sentences make interesting turns; his dialogue bites; and he brings alive pre-revolutionary Crimea, with its glum post-Soviet citizens and purple Yalta onions for sale by the roadside * Financial Times * A moral thriller . . . Bezmozgis is a magician -- Aleksandar Hemon, author of The Lazarus Project Taut, fierce, forensically insightful . . . explores the frictions between goodness and kindness, public and private virtue, forgiveness and forgetting. Compulsive and profound -- A D Miller, author of Snowdrops Brilliant, deft depictions of love, of memory, of compassion - and, ultimately, despite its title, of loyalty -- Edith Pearlman, author of Binocular Vision A taut, slim book with a stately tone that makes it feel much larger . . . For [a] lively topical discussion of what it means to live a moral life, The Betrayers is just what the doctor ordered * Prospect * An impressive novel . . . Bezmozgis explores the dynamics of mercy, guilt and repentence * Sunday Times * A vivid novel . . . raising questions of integrity, compromise, identity and forgiveness * Guardian * A brave and ambitious novel . . . The Betrayers suggests that Bezmozgis may potentially be one of the most important writers of his generation * Independent * Compelling. Bezmozgis's deft plotting, atmospheric scene-setting and limpid style remain assured. Each page is a gem * Economist * Ambitious. Bezmozgis is a fine writer * Telegraph * An impressive novel . . . In unadorned prose, Bezmozgis explores the dynamics of mercy, guilt and repentence * Sunday Times * Absolutely gripping. Bezmozgis deftly explores themes of fidelity and morality * Mail on Sunday *
