THE FIRE–my long-awaited sequel to The Eight–has spent more than SIX MONTHS ON BESTSELLER LISTS around the world, including The New York Times (shown below on book jacket), The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Rocky Mountain News, and The Indie List. It also spent many months on bestseller lists around Europe, with many weeks as Numero Uno in Spain! See a film of the Spanish Tour.

THE FIRE: The Rave Reviews

THE FIRE has been honored by fantastic reviews from prestigious publications all over the world. Here is a smattering of scintillating snatches, just from the USA: Publishers Weekly (“Stellar…”); Booklist (“Entrancing…”); The Washington Post (“The perfect escapist adventure”); The Chicago Sun-Times (“Impresses as much for its literary aspects as for its action, puzzles and suspense”); The Rocky Mountain News (“It was worth the wait”); and Library Journal (“Dan Brown stands on the shoulders of a giant… Ingenious puzzles, enthralling historical ambience, and masterful plot twists abound. More please!”)
