Review quote

The alternating perspective between the three central character add depth, detail and humour to the action-packed thrills. - The Times; Wittily written with amusing footnotes, this is an exciting page-turner of a sequel. - Birmingham Post; "Another sophisticated, sardonic satire... It is a fast-paced, frightening and funny and you don't want it to end." - The Bookseller; A vast plum pudding of a novel that improves with each mouthful. - The Independent; Fresh, downbeat, witty and wise, this novel is a worthy sequel to The Amulet of Samarkand. - TESshow more
