Reviews

  • Harris’ superlative skill at depicting power politics makes this an irresistibly gripping papal page-turner.

    Sunday Times, BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • Thriller of the year . . . with a plot so serpentine and sinuous that I could not bear to put it down.

    Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • ‘I have been waiting for most of my life for Robert Harris to write a novel that is not gripping, insightful and entertaining. I am waiting still. His latest, Conclave, is superb.

    Ben Macintyre, The Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • A real page-turner, with a great twist in the final pages.

    Libby Purves, The Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • Finishing this splendid and intelligent story, as with all great fiction, brings an acute sense of loss.

    Richard Susskind, The Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • Robert Harris is incapable of writing a substandard novel.

    Alan Johnson, Observer, BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • Each Robert Harris thriller is different but of exemplary consistency.

    Ian Rankin, Mirror BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • Robert Harris is the master storyteller of our time . . . Beautifully constructed . . . it’s dramatically compelling, politically intelligent, beautifully paced and with a lovely twist in the tail . . . narrative doesn’t come better than this.

  • I am about to use a word I have never knowingly used in any review of any book ever. During my 25-odd years of writing about books I have done my best to avoid cliches, slipshod summaries, oracular pronouncements and indeed anything else that might appear emblazoned on a book jacket. Nonetheless, there is only one possible word to describe Robert Harris’s new novel, and it is this: unputdownable

    Ian Sansom, Guardian
  • A master of producing thrillers of ever-tightening suspense, full of insider analysis of political power and the treatment of momentous events . . . gripping . . . more than a crime novel, it is also a psychological and political thriller . . . Conclave is a triumphant addition to Harris’ acclaimed output
