Reviews

Rather more than the story of an extraordinary and vicious family, The House Of Borgia is an engrossing account of a country divided up into a collection of constantly warring states, ofalliances made and broken and of almost unimaginable power and wealth there for the taking by those ruthless enough to let nothing stand in the way of their vaulting ambitions. - Daily Express... a coherent and colourful historical record of the Borgias. - Literary ReviewFew could have told the story better ... pacy, uncluttered and an eye for resonant detail. Sparkling. - TribuneA tale of greed, nepotism, assassination and relentless jostling for power. - Sunday TimesHibbert tells a good story. - Times Literary SupplementIn the last book he wrote before he died Hibbert captures quite brilliantly the extravagence and immorality at the heart of the papal empire on the eve of the Reeformation. - Good Book Guide
