Conciseness is Gordons greatest skill. He unfolds a plot branching out far, until a panoramic view of a world past emergesas vivid as the great realistical novels of the 19th century. Welt am Sonntag (Germany) So suspenseful that you cannot put it down. Leipziger Volkszeitung (Germany) "Gordon's healthy obsession with research, his ability to create extremely realistic characters, and that innate literary talent of his for which there's no explanation are certain to make this book another best seller." Elle Magazine (Spain) A wonderful book. Enjoy it with a good bottle of wine. Bcher (Germany)
