Robert's Thoughts

Comments (2) / November 30, 2021


I am happy to report that, after a five-year struggle with ideas and words and a year of trying to keep my cool as the process of getting my book published lurched forward ever so slowly, last week WHITEWASH officially joined the plethora of books available on the Internet. Now it is up to you, dear readers, to complete my happiness by writing reviews (be they positive, neutral or negative) on the various websites (Amazon, Barns & Noble, Friesenpress, Chapter/Indigo, Kobol etc..) that feature the book.


Robert Landori has written a veritable mille-feuille of a spy novel. Spanning five decades, at least eight countries, and multiple identities, WHITEWASH takes readers on a wild ride of intrigue, espionage, money laundering and even treasure-hunting. WHITEWASH will be an appealing book for fans wanting to be transported to the elegance and excesses of mid- to late-twentieth century political maneuvering. Greenleaf Book Group


Whitewash is an epic geopolitical thriller, spanning continents and decades, with a head-spinning plot and a cast of intriguing characters that have the ring of authenticity only a knowledgeable insider could bring to bear. But this work of fiction is much more. It’s a portrait of an innocent boy trapped between the devastating ideologies of the 20th century — fascism and communism — who grows into a man wanting to be on the right side of history. But heroism ultimately eludes him, as does the justice of “the cause” he signed up for. His moral ambiguity mirrors the U.S.’s dubious Cold War tactics.Janice Arnold, Reporter, The Canadian Jewish News


WHITEWASH is a fascinating, suspenseful and highly entertaining story about an NSA ‘asset’ who, during five decades, while serving his masters at Foggy Bottom (the US State Department) in the Americas and Europe, repeatedly changes ‘persona’ like a chameleon. If you like to read about history and are into international intrigue and spy-craft don’t walk – run – to buy this book.Erika Fabian, National Geographic Photographer and Author of over two dozen books, including Spy Riders, Adventures in Splendid China, and her upcoming book, Liars’ Paradise.


Robert Landori delivers again. In his ninth thriller he takes us on an international ride filled with intrigue, danger, and suspense … written in a style reminiscent of John LeCarre. Would make a fascinating TV Series.Andre Link, Ex Chairman of Lions Gate Films


Robert Landori writes marvelously intricate international intrigue thrillers.Louise Penny, New York Times best-selling author


A thrilling page turner from first to last with backdrops of South America, the Caribbean and Europe — an exotic mix.Elisabeth Cragg, Chairman of the Arts Society, Monmouthshire, UK
