    a cracking read

    Reading this book was a rollercoaster which really made me think. Revealing itself as a tautly thrilling book, it made me want to read more of Bill Napier's work. Intelligent ideas, expressed in exciting scenarios underpin the writing. I was intrigued and it made me really think about what I would do in the same circumstances as the characters. As ever in good thrillers there were no easy answers, and as the characters weaved their way through the challenges I was gripped. It was great fun and flew along at a furious pace. An involving read which should appeal to fans of thrillers who like intelligence, suspense and interwoven ideas expressed crisply and economically. I was sorry when it ended.

    Action-packed thriller

    In Lincoln, England local gentry Sir Toby Tebbit hires antiques documents dealer Harry Blake to evaluate papers he just inherited from a relative who just died in Jamaica. The next morning Harry visits Toby at the latter¿s home and makes a quick assessment of what look like a several century old journal. Toby asks Harry to take the journal with him to transcribe, but not to mention his connection to anyone................. A woman calling herself Cassandra offers Harry a lot of money for the journal he refuses, but as she departs she warns him that other means will be used to persuade his handing over the journal. Fred Sweet demands it next saying he will use a poisonous pen on Harry. Not long after that Harry learns that someone murdered his client. Knowing that the journal contains information outside his discipline he asks marine historian Zola Kahn to help him understand why someone would commit homicide over a four hundred years old tome before he becomes victim number two. Harry will soon learn that the Elizabethan Era journal could cause a pandemic holy war that would make the Crusades look like child play................. This action-packed thriller never slows down as attempts to harm, maim, or kill Harry pile up over possession of the journal. The story line is action-packed but contains an extra edge because Harry is everyman going about his daily business and not a hero he will remind the audience of Roger O. Thornhill from Hitchcock¿s North by Northwest. The pair of conspiracies seems a stretch, but fans will not care as they learn what they are and wonder if Harry can survive..............

    Interesting but a bit disappointing

    The book was an interesting read, but it seemed like bits of the plot and character development had been left out. I wouldn't even compare it to Dan Brown's work. There are more notable reads like Steve Barry's or James Rollin's.

    A hidden secret

    I stumbled upon this book at an airport when trying to find something for the return flight home. The caption on the front cover caught my eye -'Fans of Dan Brown take note.' I gave it a try and I'm happy I did. It was easy to read and had a fine mix of historical events and pure imagination. It has some minor flaws but they can be overlooked. A great notch below some of Dan Brown's works, Splintered Icon is still worth the read.
