“With alchemical skill, Neville blends modern romance, historical fiction, and medieval mystery . . . and comes up with gold.”


“A blockbuster thriller. . . The Fire is refreshingly original . . . a danger-crammed, picaresque narrative involving the legendary chess set. All of this is dashed off by Neville with great verve.”

—The Independent, UK

“Compelling… fans of that emerging subgenre — the millennial thriller — will want to add this one to their reading list.” 


“Never a dull moment, and Ms Neville makes it all the more plausible because of her intimate knowledge of how international banking works.”

—The New York Times
