  8. Judging by the synopsis it must be a lot like Dan Brown's books: great mystery, lots of running around, chasing and being chased. I hope you'll enjoy it when you read it.

    1. I saw it pop up a lot when it was first released, and even hosted the authors on my other blog. I added it to my tbr straight away. Can't believe I still haven't gotten round to reading it if I'm honest.

  10. I like books like this. I am a sucker for historical mysteries like this. Of course I'm gullible enough to believe almost all of them. I wish my history classes had included this kind of information (suspicions). It might have made the classes more interesting.
