It can't be both and it isn't. I remember the excitment I felt reading 'The Da Vinci Code'; gripping. I then read all Dan's other books in print; rollocking thrillers. This one wouldn't have felt out of a place as an early try. Coming, as it does, as the latest try, is a disappoiintment. What was a minor feature (an accurate sense of place) now becomes the main feature. So,.fundamentally a travel book with a bit of a thriller plot thrown in.
