Conclave Press Reviews

Harris
superlative skill at depicting power politics makes this an irresistibly gripping papal page

-turner. Sunday Times, BOOKS OF THE YEAR Thriller of the year ... with a plot so serpentine and sinuous that I could not bear to put it down. -- Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail BOOKS OF THE YEAR 'I have been waiting for most of my life for Robert Harris to write a novel that is not gripping, insightful and entertaining. I am waiting still. His latest, Conclave, is superb. -- Ben Macintyre The Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR A real page-turner, with a great twist in the final pages. -- Libby Purves The Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR Finishing this splendid and intelligent story, as with all great fiction, brings an acute sense of loss. -- Richard Susskind The Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR Robert Harris is incapable of writing a substandard novel. -- Alan Johnson Observer, BOOKS OF THE YEAR Each Robert Harris thriller is different but of exemplary consistency. -- Ian Rankin Mirror BOOKS OF THE YEAR Robert Harris is the master storyteller of our time ... Beautifully constructed ... it's dramatically compelling, politically intelligent, beautifully paced and with a lovely twist in the tail ... narrative doesn't come better than this. Scotsman BOOKS OF THE YEAR I am about to use a word I have never knowingly used in any review of any book ever. During my 25-odd years of writing about books I have done my best to avoid cliches, slipshod summaries, oracular pronouncements and indeed anything else that might appear emblazoned on a book jacket. Nonetheless, there is only one possible word to describe Robert Harris's new novel, and it is this: unputdownable -- Ian Sansom Guardian A master of producing thrillers of ever-tightening suspense, full of insider analysis of political power and the treatment of momentous events ... gripping ... more than a crime novel, it is also a psychological and political thriller ... Conclave is a triumphant addition to Harris
acclaimed output

-- David Grylls Sunday Times
