Reviews for Liberation Square, by Gareth Rubin:
'A gripping story, with heart'
(from Best thrillers of 2019, Daily Telegraph)
'This richly imagined thriller is set in an alternate past . . . Tightly plotted, tense and set in a chillingly plausible world'
"The book is filled with rich secrets, at times I found myself rushing through the pages needing to know more. The story has been very cleverly written and is a complete mixture of genres thrown into one. From crime to thriller, mystery to historical fiction and even espionage too. It is incredible that this is Gareth Rubin’s debut novel as the writing is spot on and the plot is flawless".
"Gripping, intelligent, and incredibly well crafted – Liberation Square is as timely as it is thrilling. A memorable read that I highly recommend."
