  • 'Man does for the reader that most difficult of tasks: he conjures up an ancient people in an alien landscape in such a way as to make them live . . . a gripping present day quest'

    The Good Book Guide
  • 'Racy and imaginative...sympathetically and readably puts flesh and bones on one of history's most turbulent characters'
