LoveReading View on Oracle

Renowned for his excellent ancient historical thrillers, Manfredi changes gear a little and gives us a dual time tale, Greece 1983, an archaeological dig in 1973, and the ancient world of The Odyssey in the twist. He is an Italian history scholar so you know you are getting the genuine stuff. Personally I love to be educated and thrilled at the same time. He’s good.

Oracle Synopsis

Phenomenally successful writer Valerio Massimo Manfredi tells a modern tale inspired by an ancient prophecy Greece at the time of the Colonels, 1973 - An archaeologist discovers a gold Mycenaean vase embellished with images of the last voyage of Ulysses. But his mysterious death and the vases's disappearance remain unexplained for ten years until disturbing signals catalyse different characters into a relentless pursuit for the truth. Already a success in Europe, The Oracle is another action-packed adventure from the bestselling author of the 'Alexander' trilogy, Spartan and The Last Legion.
