"Another exciting, fast paced novel from the master storyteller David I Andrews. History comes alive, intertwined with mystery and political themes. Endeavours Legacy is reminiscent of Dan Brown's popular fiction and with its ever increasing suspense, it is sure to keep readers guessing until the very end." --Mindy Gibbons Klein, Author of A Dance in the Desert.
"..........the author reminds me of Jeffery Archer." --John Trenhaile, Author of The man called Kyril and Mahjong Spies etc
