As significant as Len Deighton or le Carré in bringing a gritty new realism to the thriller. (Sunday Telegraph)
A Long Way to Shiloh added a new dimension to [Davidson's work]. It had its ceaselessly gripping story - a hunt for the centuries-lost true Menorah from the Temple at Jerusalem - it had its quota of sheer adventure, it had its sharpness of tone that helped to trick you deliciously into full belief, it had its immensely funny passages and it had all that overwhelming vividness. But it had something more as well. It had a setting that was . . . a character in the book in its own right . . . A joy to devour. (H. R. F. Keating The Times)
Long before Indiana Jones, it casts an archaeologist as a hero . . . Davidson is especially good at being realistically funny without in any way losing the tension or the fear. (Peter Hitchens)
A supple delight in which learning, wit and style are beautifully integrated. (New York Times)
Brilliantly entertaining. (Sunday Express)
A very superior thriller indeed. (Daily Mail)
A fiery young professor goes on the hunt for a priceless artefact in this no. 1 bestselling thriller.
