US Hardcover Edition
"Lindsey has long ruled that grim land where acts of despicable evil can be committed by people for whom reader's hearts are breaking. This masterful amalgam of high-level espionage and emotional terrorism, his finest novel to date, only extends his reign....Lindsey provides a profoundly affecting portrait of those whose lives are spent on the dark cusp between survival and annihilation."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"...a sophisticated thriller...with an artistic edge. Lindsey is as ripe for bestsellerdom as he is deserving of it. "
The Chicago Sun-Times
"David Lindsey is an author with a solid track record. In Requiem For A Glass Heart he spins one of his most wrenching stories yet...readers should love it."
The Chicago Tribune
"As he amply demonstrated in 1991's Mercy, David Lindsey is a solid craftsman. His characters all have depth, and his novel never seems in any danger of flying off the road, even when the speed is furious. Glass Heart is among the best spy thrillers to come along since the Evil Empire collapsed."
"David Lindsey delivers a work with all the ingredients for commercial success...he is a muscular writer...in the top ranks of the genre."
"Lindsey explores the painfully mixed motives of these women in ways that are at once exciting and poignant...a solid and suspenseful thriller...with a combination of skillful pacing and carefully balanced characterizations."
"Austin resident David Lindsey's ninth novel moves him further from the police procedurals that launched his career and into the top rank of international thriller writers, alongside such giants as John le Carre. As usual Lindsey's marvelous prose, with its sensitive choice of descriptive phrases, is a joy to read. With Requiem for a Glass Heart, he is at the top of his game."
"...in most ways, David Lindsey's best novel so far. I have no doubt that David Lindsey can make a name for himself in mainstream fiction. He is a good writer with a real knack for making place and character come alive in his plots."
Dallas Morning News
"The tension in this moody thriller fairly leaps from the page. This is not the first time [Lindsey] has turned his considerable ability to creating strong female characters, but in Ismayova and Cuevas he has quite possibly out done himself. A fascinating and moving story...number one on the summer's reading list."
"...this is no ordinary thriller: the pace never lets up, the characters are memorable, and the style is elegant...penetrating observations...considerable psychological insight. Simply put, it is a marvelous, fast-paced, eletant suspense novel that I heartily recommend."
