9780099547853: Secrets of the Dead

An utterly compelling, action-packed new thriller from the author of The Lazarus Vault and The Lost Temple

In a villa on the coast of Montenegro, Abby Cormac witnesses the brutal murder of her lover, diplomat Michael Lascaris. The last thing she remembers is a gun pointed directly at her. She wakes to find herself at the center of a diplomatic nightmare. Everyone wants an answer but no one wants to listen. Even her employers at the Foreign Office believe she's hiding something. She is completely alone. As Abby tries to piece together the last few months of Michael's life in order to get at the truth, she soon realises that he wasn't quite what he seemed. What exactly was his relationship with one of the most ruthless men in the Balkans—a war criminal who has never been brought to justice? And what links the gold necklace he gave her to a fourth century manuscript left in the shadow of Emperor Constantine's palace at Trier, and an inscription on a tomb in Rome? When Abby investigates further, it becomes clear that someone wants to suppress a secret that has been kept hidden for centuries, and they will stop at nothing to do so.

Review:

Praise for Other Titles by Tom Harper:

"In the tradition of The Da Vinci Code, a page-turner of a novel. Like Dan Brown, Tom Harper knows how to ratchet up the tension."
Choice magazine

"Scholarly but speedy narrative, steeped in medieval horrors ranging from flogging to famine, all anchored in what feels like a passion for history and spelling out the way things were."
Literary Review

"Tom Harper writes with strident clarity in this epic tale of murder and betrayal, bloodshed and romance. Gripping from the first page, the reader is swept up in this colourful and convincing portrayal of an Emperor and his realm, under siege. Well-researched, and cinematic in its imagery, this is a fast-paced and exciting debut."
Ink

"Harper effortlessly draws the reader into the court intrigues and conspiracies of 11th-century Byzantium in his outstanding debut."
Publishers Weekly
