—From the hardcover edition

Jacket Copy: The Hungarian Game is the most exciting espionage novel since the debuts of Len Deighton and John le Carré, and perhaps the first American book to equal the pace and suspense of those transatlantic masters of the genre. With its fascinating detail of espionage, its sudden flashes of violence, its cynicism, and its complex, gradually unfolded, breathtaking plot, The Hungarian Game takes its place, we believe, among the truly original and innovative espionage novels. From the first page to the last, it is one of those rare books that demand to be read in one sitting.

Review:

—From the hardcover edition

"This new spy thriller is really something different ... loads of action and appropriate amounts of sex ... right up to the tough slam-bang finale in which the pieces fit together at last."
—Publishers Weekly

"Clever and exciting ... one can fairly say it reads British."
 —Times Literary Supplement, London (UK)


"Who is out to get whom and who will get whom and what is anybody's guess all thru this tale of grim hilarity, until the final checkmate done in four brilliant double-twist moves."Chicago Tribune

"An exciting and highly original American espionage novel. Mr. Hayes is a writer of mordant wit and impressive power."
—Surrey & Hampshire News (UK)


"... whips the reader along over a sea of frothy witticisms."
—Los Angeles Times


"His story is a gripping one ..."—San Diego Tribune

"... a lively blend of opulence and bureaucracy, with distinct whiffs of lechery and explosives. The action is swift and the wit is sharp."
—The Evening Post, Bristol (UK)


"Hayes' spy is a cross between James Bond and the cynical one who came in from the cold."—Chicago Daily News

"Intrigue and suspense at its best ... with similes which crackle and dialogue that sparkles."
—Los Angeles Herald-Examiner


"... intertwines all three hunts brilliantly and winds them up in a series of climaxes as smashing as any in contemporary action fiction. The Hungarian Game is dazzling cloak-and-dagger."
—Buffalo Evening News
