Reviews – Whitewash

  • A thriller set in the period from WWII to the fall of the Soviet Union blends finance, politics, love, and survival. In Landori’s sprawling novel, which relies heavily on flashbacks to provide backstory and uses many international locales, much of the action takes place during the Cold War.

  • “A thrilling page turner from first to last with backdrops of South America, the Caribbean and Europe — an exotic mix.”

  • “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.”

  • “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.”

  • “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.”

  • “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.”
