This book was a gift from a friend and not the type of novel I usually read. After putting it aside for several months, I pick it up to read and was enchanted. The story which is set in 1664, revolves around the Dutch painter Vermeer and his fictional muse. The writing is exceptional and the story is fascinating. The blend of history, art and storytelling produces an outstanding work of fiction that could convincingly pass as a biography instead.

A clever work of fiction which has Arthur Conan Doyle pursuing an evil brotherhood determined to expand its considerable power and influence with fiendish assistance from supernatural forces. Set in Victorian England, this tale is a fast paced thriller by the co-creator of 'Twin Peaks.'

This is one of the best novels I have ever read. I enjoyed the movie, particularly as a visual treat, but the book is far better. It is captivating and beautifully written. It will fascinate you (even if you've seen the movie) from the very start.

"Hewson's absorbing series debut features a memorable cast of fully human characters, imagines the distorted mind of a serial killer and takes a chilling glimpse into the Vatican's less-than-godly dealings with the secular world." ---Minneapolis Star Tribune

Here is Hewson's first book in an outstanding series of mysteries featuring Nic Costa, a detective with the Rome state police department. I found this detailed, sinister, and compelling mystery very hard to put down.

There are many different characters and complications in this tale. Notwithstanding, it is one of the best medieval mysteries in Michael Jeck's West Country/Templar series.
