Overview

From the author of The Lost Temple, another gripping action-packed thriller in the bestselling tradition of The Da Vinci Code and Codex
 
Deep in the heart of London, the Monsalvat Bank is small, secretive, and fabulously wealthy. When Ellie Stanton, an impoverished graduate student, is unexpectedly invited to join the firm, the privileged world they offer looks too good to turn down—but the bank is more than it seems. Soon Ellie realizes that her life belongs to her employers, and that they're watching her every move, for buried in their medieval vaults lies a closely-guarded treasure of immeasurable power—one inextricably bound up with Ellie's own history. Now Ellie is in a race against time, hunted by the bank and pursued by her past, her only hope of escape to unearth the secret hidden in the vault—but getting in is only the beginning.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Fans of Harper’s First Crusade trilogy (The Mosaic of Shadows, etc.) will find the subtlety and creativity of those books missing from this Da Vinci Code wannabe, which also borrows heavily from Grisham’s The Firm. When Ellie Stanton, a British medieval history grad student, shows up for a job interview with Vivian Blanchard, the director of London’s Monsalvat Bank, Blanchard offers her a lucrative position on the spot, despite her lack of any relevant background. The salary, living quarters, and fringe benefits are too good to refuse. Of course, it’s soon apparent that the bank is up to something sinister. Warned that the sixth floor is off-limits, Stanton discovers that the building stops at the fifth floor. Meanwhile, a Luxembourg bank examiner encounters dirty dealings at a Monsalvat branch. The author’s efforts to transform a meek academic into an action figure are less than convincing. (Nov.)
From the Publisher

"Tom Harper's latest offering is simply magic."  —Eurocrime

"Like Steven Saylor, the master of the ancient Roman historical, Harper effortlessly draws the reader into an unfamiliar time, bringing alive the characters and their motivations."  —Publishers Weekly starred review on Knights of the Cross

"Fans of thrillers with an Indiana Jones angle who just can't wait for the next James Rollins or Steve Berry novel should check out this very entertaining tale . . . readers will no doubt finish this one and immediately begin clamoring for a series."  —Booklist on The Lost Temple

"I found the novel . . . so much more enjoyable than The Da Vinci Code to which it is obviously indebted for everything from hidden bank vaults to secluded country estates and handicapped villains. Lazarus's puzzles are actually believable. The female characters are better drawn. Most importantly for this audience, the history is competent."  —The Historical Novels Review, Editor's Choice
