4.0 out of 5 stars Well-written and gripping.
This is a suspenseful novel that starts with a murder and grips the reader; the main characters are finely drawn and believable, I did not want it to end!

3.0 out of 5 stars Dodgy dealings in the Vatican, 30 Aug 2013

This review is from: Archangels: Rise of the Jesuits (Kindle Edition)
Being so secretive, especially in response to any criticisms of or alleged scandals concerning itself, the Vatican has become one of the big go-to choices for the setting of a novel of the murder-mystery genre. It is therefore a brave author who risks making that choice. The present author has in my view successfully made that choice. In spite of the somewhat hackneyed early 20th century paradigm of a rich, upper-class policeman being the hero, the novel is very readable and holds the interest well: a sort of "thinking man's Dan Brown". A major contributory factor to enjoyment of the book is the author's evident thorough and extensive knowledge of both the financial world and past events involving believed dodgy dealings of the Vatican in that world. As might be expected, the novel relates fictional such dealings of an extremely dodgy nature, and clergy of a grossly unholy nature, possibly so extremely that a gullible or biased reader might see a picture of the Vatican and its denizens that is unfairly black. In any event, I can recommend this novel, although particularly devout catholics with high blood pressure might be wise to give it a miss!
