• "Paul Sussman’s final novel is as thrilling an archaeological adventure as you’re likely to read: wildly exciting, brutal, expertly informed and utterly unputdownable."

  • "Sussman knew how to keep a complex plot bowling along while constantly ratcheting up the tension...this is top-drawer popular fiction and is sure to become an even bigger bestseller than his three other novels."

    John Preston, MAIL ON SUNDAY
  • "An absolutely top-notch thriller – captivating, intelligent and notably well-written, with a depth of characterisation most thrillers don’t usually even attempt... his plotting is terrific...Sussman’s thrillers have been translated into 33 languages and have sold over 2 million copies worldwide. This, his final book, deserves to be even more successful."

    Harry Ritchie, DAILY MAIL
  • "A genuinely exciting read from a world-class storyteller…a beautifully-observed thriller"

    Christopher Fowler, FINANCIAL TIMES
  • "Stylish writing and deep research."
