Review

"A cracking thriller."--"The Sun" (London)

A cracking thriller. --"The Sun" (London)"

An act of great daring, pulled off to perfection....Thoughtful, thought-provoking and intelligent: mind-blowingly good. --Manda Scott, author of "The Crystal Skull""

There is food here for mind, sense, and heart. It is exceedingly high-class entertainment. --N.J. Cooper, author of "Vengeance in Mind""

This thought-provoking thriller marks a return to form for the talented Harper. . . .A convincing portrait of Plato s time. --"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)"

This exciting, fast-paced thriller boasts some well-drawn characters, an involving plot, and some seriously interesting speculation about the nature of hell. . . . It s an ambitious book, and fans of the author s previous, history-based thrillers will have a great time. --"Booklist""

A historical thrill ride. . . . The history and mystery move forward like a bullet out of a gun. . . . The research of ancient Greece is stunning and in-depth, and the marvelous characters, both present day and long ago, are enticing. --"Suspense Magazine""

This is a sort of Platonic ideal of the kind of book Dan Brown attempts to write a pacy, preposterous Indiana Jones-esque thriller, but with prose that sparkles, jokes that amuse and characters that resemble human beings. --Jake Kerridge, "Daily Telegraph" (London)"

Tom Harper has been writing elaborate thrillers that marry ironclad narrative skills with some of the most elegantly understated writing in the field; he s the thinking person s Dan Brown. Actually, Harper deserves the latter s success and more, as Harper is comfortably the better writer. --Barry Forshaw, author of "The Rough Guide to Crime Writing""

"A cracking thriller."--The Sun (London)
