Review

Praise for the John Shakespeare series (:)

Enjoyable, bloody and brutish (Guardian)

Sixteenth-century London comes alive in all its tawdriness (Daily Mail)

A world spiced with delicious characters . . . Clements seasons it with romance and humour (Mail on Sunday)

Beautifully done . . . alive and tremendously engrossing (Daily Telegraph *****)

Review

'pacy and assured...Well crafted, it has all the pleasures of an intriguing lead character, intricate plot and historical context'. (Elizabeth Buchan Daily Mail)

'Rory Clements's timely spy thriller set in the 1930s evokes a period of political polarisation, mistrust and simmering violence. Corpus is fast-paced and there are plenty of red herrings to keep you guessing. This is the first of a promising series and Wilde is a likeable hero. If his leap from Cambridge historian to fearless motor-biking crime fighter stretches credulity, perhaps that is the fault of the Cambridge historians I have known.' (Antonia Senior The Times, Saturday Review)

'This clever novel, rich in deceptions and intrigue, shows the reach of Stalin and Hitler into every class of British society, threatening violence on a horrific scale. Corpus is a standout historical novel and spy thriller by an author who can turn his hand to any historical period he chooses.' (Kate Atherton Daily Express)

I was a huge fan of the John Shakespeare series and love every single book. Corpus was an enjoyable read... (Lis The Bookworm)

'I really enjoyed this book. It was my first experience of this author and I am very glad I picked this one up. The writing was easy to get into and the plot was engaging. I enjoyed the characters, especially the lead - he is well written and intelligent. Overall this was a great book set in an interesting time and I would definitely recommend picking this book up.' (The Little Book Owl)

' An intelligent thriller...I loved the characters and especially hero Professor Thomas Wilde. Our heroine, Lydia is well rounded...Wilde is a cool hero.' (For the Love of Books)

'It simply took my breath away. The amount of research that has gone into this superb book is just phenomenal. Boy does Rory Clements know how to tell a story! It's a tangled web of espionage, murder, intrigue and thrills. I'm so glad I got the chance to review this book. When I have time I will be reading this again. There's so much detail that you might miss!' (The Book Guzzler)

Rory Clements does a fine job... very readable (New Zealand Listener)
