Media Reviews

"Fans of thrillers that reach far back into history will be, well, . . . thrilled." - Booklist.
"While readers looking for efficient plotting may be disappointed, Meltzer's many fans will enjoy this substantial meal of a book." - PW.
"Every ingredient is perfect except for clear plotting, credible threats and characters (and a conspiracy) worth caring about. How successful will Meltzer's fumbling knockoff be?
