I adore the way the writer holds the attention of the reader by weaving a cleverly constructed tale of mystery. No point repeating content of other reviews, just read and see for yourselves.

A real thriller keeping you wondering at every turn of the plot. CIA, FBI, GOD? Who will win? May be something much more sinister!

After enjoying so much "The Mask of Atreus" by the same author, I was intrigued to see if this, his latest offering, would be of the same high calibre.
I found it not only reached but, perhaps, even surpassed "The Mask....."!
I know it is often used as a cliche, but I truly found it so difficult to put down after starting to read it. I found I was reading and turning the pages more rapidly than I've done with any other book for some time.
The storyline is fascinating, intriguing, and exciting with good, believable characters.
The main character Thomas Knight sets out to seek the truth behind the reason why his brother, a Catholic priest, died in the Philipines. Along the way, he is being tracked by fanatical agents who want to ensure that the amazing secret that his brother found stays hidden forever.
There's plenty of excitement,action, and suspense, and scientific and religious intrigue - a lot of which is rooted in fact.
I highly recommend this for anyone who likes the James Rollins/ Steve Berry/ David Hewson/ Bill Napier/ - type novels/genre.
(Those of you who have read "The Mask of Atreus" will certainly enjoy this also.)

The story goes along quite quickly after a slow start and the locations are very well described. The Italian and Japanese scenes show the author's first-hand knowledge of these countries and the story blends in well with the locations. The problem I had was with the characters particularly the central character Thomas Knight. Apparently a high grade teacher but often made to seem as thick as a plank; continually angry, brusque and awkward with virtually no chance of forming any relationship with anybody. Quite honestly I found him the most obnoxious anti-hero I have ever read about in a novel (no redeeming graces whatsoever). I actually hoped he would die in the first few chapters so that a more appealing person could be written into the novel, but no such luck. The difficulty I had is that I found the main character so appalling that the whole story (good though the plot may be) became difficult to get into since you basically don't care what happens, especially to him.
Some exciting situations and a really nice sub-plot about Japanese archaeological finds which was very well done. But I did not really enjoy reading this novel.
I hope that Mr Harley manages to sketch out a much more appealing central figure in his other novels.
