S. J. Parris Press Reviews

Praise for S. J. Parris:

'A tight plot combines with subtly realised characters and an omnipresent sense of danger ... My pleasure in the vividly textured backdrop and a cracking story was accompanied by an uneasy shudder
Daily Mail

'Colourful characters, fast-moving plots and a world where one false step in religion or politics can mean a grisly death'
Sunday Times

'A delicious blend of history and thriller'
The Times

'Vivid, sprawling ... Well-crafted, exuberant fare'
Financial Times

'Successful historical thrillers need three elements: a killer plot that weaves seamlessly into the history; an engaging protagonist; and an atmospheric sense of place. Parris nails all three - Conspiracy is a gem'
The Times

'This latest addition to the series will no doubt repeat its predecessors' success... The authentically febrile air of suspense that Parris generates, as well as a shoal of red herrings and some impish, what-if plotting. The drawing-room style denouement, conducted as it is in a salon at the Tuileries Palace, is also executed with knowing relish' Observer

'I can thoroughly recommend Conspiracy, which twists and turns like a corkscrew of venomous snakes
Stuart MacBride
