An entertaining romp, and rather better written than most of the plethora of post-Da Vinci Code pap that has flooded the market.

Review by

John Holliday's life changes when his uncle dies and he and his cousin discover a medieval sword among his belongings. Things start to get strange when the house burns down and Holliday and his cousin Peggy Blackstock find themselves on the run and trying to find out why and what's going on. The story is entertaining, as long as you don't poke too hard, the history is dodgy, and the visit to Ireland was superficial and annoying for this Irish person.It did draw me in and keep me reading and enjoying it, so kudos for that, but it's bubblegum.
