Praise for MASTER AND GOD:
'The narrative is rapid and the story well told with much sharp-edged detail. You can open this book and step right into a convincing yet extraordinary past.'(Independent)
'Davis's descriptions of Rome are vivid and lively...this is a great yarn' ( Daily Mail)
'While this book is a departure from her usual Falco novels, the trademark charm, piercing intelligence and ready wit are as abundant as ever... dramatic and enthralling, all the more so for being full of historical fact. The characters are intriguing and three-dimensional, and the whole is told with a humour and insight which means the reader will find the book impossible to put down.' (www.thebookbag.co.uk)
'An intimate portrait of resilience, friendship and love' (Sunday Examiner, Australia)

Top customer reviews
Compared with the Falco books the characters are limited and flat. There is no one to compare with Helena or Petronius or Falco's many relatives. The plot is OK, but not really gripping.
However - if, like me, you are a Falco fan and have read all the books and just want more, then this one is similar enough to be enjoyable. I liked it enough to want to give the next one a try.
