5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read, 21 Jun 2013
This review is from: The Diabolist (The Dominic Grey Series) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I admit I have a soft spot for religious conspiracy type thrillers ever since I read the Da Vinci Code. The back of the review copy of this book hints that fans of The X-Files, Dan Brown, James Rollins, Steve Berry and Douglas Preston will love it. They had me at X-Files, one of my favourites of all time.

The book was nothing at all like the Da Vinci code, it was in a class all its own and it was a wonderful, roller-coaster read of a book. The pages just flew by, you got so engrossed in it. A great scope of a plot, filled with quirky characters - Viktor Radek seemed a bit as if he stepped out of the nineteenth century with his old-world charm and addiction to absinthe.

Some of it was far-fetched and ludicrous, but the novel was so well-crafted that you could suspend your disbelief and just enjoy. You were drawn into the world the author created and as you were reading, nothing seemed out of place. It was a very interesting read and I might have to go and hunt out Radek's and Grey's other adventures (this one is third in the series, but still works as a standalone novel.)
