Product Details


“…a superb, deeply thought-out book written by an author who recognizes the darkness of the human heart.”
– Betty Webb, Mystery Scene Magazine

“A sophisticated literary thriller.”
The Guardian

“Honest, sharp, beautifully written.”
– Ann Cleeves, award-winning author of the Shetland series and Vera novels

“A crippling tale of love, loss, redemption, violence, and political intrigue. THE VIEW FROM THE TOWER is a slow burning crime novel that’s more about retrospective relationships post death than the mystery surrounding the identity and motives of a killer.”
- Just A Guy That Likes To Read

“Another cracking novel from Charles Lambert that transports the reader to Rome, the everyday Rome that often only the locals are ‘privileged’ to experience…The things I love about Charles’ writing are the great style and the little vignettes that pepper the prose, whether it is the nugget of description of Helen and Federico’s dream house, seen from their train compartment; or descriptions of that typical italian marble used for flooring which is “.. a sort of mottled marble, like one of those fatty salamis cut into slices and squared off into tiles” (perfect, I can visualise it now!); or the road to Ostia Antica, the Via del Mare with its dappled light and fast cars, and which is deemed to be the most dangerous road in the country. When you read Charles’s work, you just KNOW you are in Italy!”
– Trip Fiction

“It’s about a murder, and the lead up to and consequences of that act. But it’s also about relationships. It’s about the parts of ourselves we keep hidden, even from those closest to us.”
- Cheap Thrills

“If you are looking for a character-driven story with a political viewpoint then this may well be the book for you to help start this new year off.”
- So So Gay

Praise and Reviews for Any Human Face:“a slow-burning, beautifully written crime story that brings to life the Rome that tourists don’t see – luckily for them.”
– Jake Kerridge, Daily Telegraph

“Immensely impressive… holds you completely enthralled throughout.”
The Bookseller

“Lambert’s writing is expressive and finely tuned; he has a flair for characterisation and a sense of place which goes down very well…”
Sunday Business Post

“It’s a wonderful book, beautifully written.”
– Euro Crime
