”The evil grows so sneakily – I have never read a Finnish thriller with this kind of suspense! Annika Lehto and Daniel Kuisma are here to stay!” – Kotivinkki

”Max Seeck’s trilogy is the best there is in the Finnish thriller field right now.” – Suomen kuvalehti

”Max Seeck’s thriller works perfectly – the trilogy comes to an end in this book that has a plausible plot and well-drawn characters. The Call of Hades is exactly as strong as its predecessors; The Angels  of Hammurabi and The Mephisto Touch, and it is a perfect combination of spy story and action thriller.” Helsingin Sanomat daily newspaper
