4.0 out of 5 stars Much Better 4 Jan. 2014
By Paul
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a breath of fresh air after the dire offerings in Knox 3 and 4. All new characters and a much lower level of violence than before. Not a psychopathic, sadistic, sexually deviant gangster to be found, and the book is far better for it.

The pace of the action is fast enough to keep the pages turning and the history underpinning the story gets introduced in manageable segments that don't create firebreaks to the action. Of course there are the coincidences and the unlikely scenarios to skate over but they rarely get too big to swallow even in a book where a 300 year old puzzle is unravelled in a day and a half.

In a lot of ways this is a very British adventure, with not only the locations and history but the subdued level of violence and the lack of villains armed to the teeth with an inexhaustible supply of lethal armament. I really enjoyed reading it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 20 Jan. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was uncertain whether or not to read this book, having not enjoyed Adams' last two offerings. This one comes up trumps though. An implausible story but lots of action and it moves at a fair pace. Definitely worth a read as you do want to get to the end - and I would like to find out a little more about Isaac Newton now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Will Adams 14 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good basis to a story, lots of historic information without getting to heavy. Male and female characters becoming stronger as the book progresses. If you haven't read Will Adams other books would recommend you do so.

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific conspiracy thriller 12 Dec. 2012
Format:Paperback
Fans of Dan Brown will love this book. Quick pace, loads of background info on Newton (who knew he was autistic?!) and a brilliant twist. I read it in 2 sittings, which is unusual for me! Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top read. Highly recommended. 26 Dec. 2012
By Insider
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Terrific, seat-of-the-pants read with an original plot and plenty of twists. The ideas in this book may stretch plausibility, but they are immaculately researched and the reader is swept along at such a pace that any lingering doubts are soon forgotten....

5.0 out of 5 stars Why I liked Newton's Fire. 25 Mar. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very interesting and made me think about Neton's times and his life. An interesting twist was to bring it into the 21st. century.and involve political events of this time.
