"Only Otto Penzler could bring together this dream team of espionage fiction-the short stories by some of America's most original thriller writers constitute an instant classic. Joseph Finder might be said to have supplied the tone for this splendid collection with the first line of his yarn: 'I can't shake the feeling that they're up to something.' The members of this dream team all are!" —Robert Littell

"The sheer variety of distinctive voices here gives us espionage fiction at its most pleasurable--impossible to read just one." —Joseph Kanon

"In Agents of Treachery, Otto Penzler doesn't just get A-plus talent--he does the real magic trick--he gets A-plus stories out of them. Embrace your inner spy and join the secret club." —Brad Meltzer
