Reviews

"I found the novel . . . so much more enjoyable than "The Da Vinci Code" to which it is obviously indebted for everything from hidden bank vaults to secluded country estates and handicapped villains. Lazarus's puzzles are actually believable. The female characters are better drawn. Most importantly for this audience, the history is competent." --"Historical Novels Review," Editors Choice, on "The Lazarus Vault" "A terrifically told, well researched blend of ancient history and modern Mafiosi, which brings the Balkans vividly to light. Intriguing and entertaining at the same time." "Times"" "Fans of thrillers with an Indiana Jones angle who just can't wait for the next James Rollins or Steve Berry novel should check out this very entertaining tale. . . . With a lightning-fast pace, a cast of colorful characters, plenty of twists and turns, and a story that reaches into the past and the future, the novel is sure to please fans of the historical-thriller genre." "Booklist" on "The Lost Temple"" "I found the novel . . .so much more enjoyable than "The Da Vinci Code" to which it is obviously indebted for everything from hidden bank vaults to secluded country estates and handicapped villains. Lazarus's puzzles are actually believable. The female characters are better drawn. Most importantly for this audience, the history is competent." "Historical Novels Review," Editors Choice, on "The Lazarus Vault"" Praise for Other Titles by Tom Harper: "In the tradition of The Da Vinci Code, a page-turner of a novel. Like Dan Brown, Tom Harper knows how to ratchet up the tension." --"Choice magazine" "Scholarly but speedy narrative, steeped in medieval horrors ranging from flogging to famine, all anchored in what feels like a passion for history and spelling out the way things were." --"Literary Review " "Tom Harper writes with strident clarity in this epic tale of murder and betrayal, bloodshed and romance. Gripping from the first page, the reader is swept up in this colourful and convincing portrayal of an Emperor and his realm, under siege. Well-researched, and cinematic in its imagery, this is a fast-paced and exciting debut." --"Ink" "Harper effortlessly draws the reader into the court intrigues and conspiracies of 11th-century Byzantium in his outstanding debut." --"Publishers Weekly"
