“With her visionary sensibility, Anne Perry is the master of the ‘you are there’ school of hist-myst storytelling.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Remarkable . . . [Anne Perry sets] an engaging personal story against a rich backdrop of events to convey the intrigue and extreme peril that characterized the struggles between the faiths of the countries bordering the Mediterranean in the thirteenth century.”—The Star-Ledger

“[Perry] gives the reader a real feel for the sights, sounds and smells of Constantinople in the time of the Crusades, as well as tastes of Venice, Rome, Sicily, and Jerusalem.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Perry escalates the tension in subtle ways [and] creates a deep sense of impending doom.”—Dayton Daily News
“[A] grandly scaled epic . . . with a canny eye for drama, [Perry] makes this complex historical background both vivid and clear.”—Kirkus Reviews
