Critics Reviews
WELL PLOTTED AND EXPLOSIVELY PACED. Crammed with Vatican intrigue and hi-tech drama, Brown's tale is laced with twists and shocks that keep the reader wired right up until the final revelation. Packing the novel with sinister figures worthy of a Medici, Brown sets an explosive pace through a Michelin-perfect Rome. -PUBLISHERS WEEKLY AMONG THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ. Angels & Demons is part thriller, part mystery, and all action. A highly entertaining, page-turning thriller. Davina Morgan-Witts BookBrowse.com
