Review quote

"Fascinating and absorbing... A great, riveting read. I loved this book" -- Harlan Coben "Blockbuster perfection... An exhilaratingly brainy thriller. Not since the advent of Harry Potter has an author so flagrantly delighted in leading readers on a breathless chase" * The New York Times * "Exceedingly clever... Both fascinating and fun... A considerable achievement" * The Washington Post * "Brown's novel adroitly blends the chase-stuffed thrillers of Robert Ludlum and the learned romps of Umberto Eco... For anyone who wants more brain food than thrillers normally provide" * The Sunday Times * "A gripping bestseller... Brown has cracked the bestseller code" * Guardian *show more
