5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite Book!, 18 April 2006

Brilliant story. Anyone interested in in the fallout from the dissolution of the monasteries thanks to Henry VIII should read this book. It's a modern search for hidden treasure with both romance and cold blooded violence to keep the tension. A very well written book that comes alive and is so believable. It's a book worth re-reading time and time again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Book for the deserted island!, 12 Feb 2009
Great thriller and love story combined with fascinating facts about Greek mythology and fine arts.

This novel is unfortunately out of print for several years and in case you plan to read it, make sure to get the hardcover copy with the dust wrapper as the paperback copy does not have the complete painting (the landscape of lies) on the cover which is necessary to follow the story.

If I would end up on a deserted island and be allowed to take 10 books with me, this novel by Peter Watson would be one of them.
I read it 9 or 10 times and each time I like it even better and discover new facettes.
I wonder why it never has been filmed?

One day I plan to go on a long vacation to England to see all the places mentioned in the book.
I started with going to the National Portrait Gallery in London last year...
10 stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars I remember this book from childhood but never got to ..., 5 Aug 2014

This review is from: A Landscape of Lies (Hardcover)
I remember this book from childhood but never got to the end. It is very dated (set in 1985) so anyone who didn't live through the 80s might find struggle with the lack of technology. I keep thinking "why don't they just google it?" LOL
