9780099516460: Kingdom of Light

For fans of Dan Brown's Inferno, a sensational Italian thriller starring Dante Alighieri as lead detective. Florence, August 1300. On the banks of the river Arno, a war galley is found with the entire crew dead inside. Dante Alighieri, Prior to the City, suspects poison but the only clue is a mysterious mechanical device. Dante suspects that the damaged device is the work of al-Jazari, the legendary Persian inventor. But others are also after the instrument and will stop at nothing to lay their hands on it...When Dante returns to Florence to work on his magnum opus, the Divine Comedy, he discovers that the renegade monk, Brinando, is stirring up trouble and recruiting Florentines for a new crusade to liberate the Holy Land. Is this disturbing new development somehow linked to the deaths of the galley crew?

Review:

"Dante vividly and fantastically comes to life in this amazing historical thriller. If you love The Name of the Rose, then you must read The Kingdom of Light" -- Glenn Cooper, author of Library of the Dead "For a series character distinctively different, it is hard to beat the Italian author Giulio Leoni's trick of casting Dante Alighieri, the medieval author of The Divine Comedy, as a sleuth" The Times "Good at getting inside the mindset of another age" -- Elizabeth Hawksley Historical Novels Review
