THE HUFFINGTON POST
"A roller-coaster of a tale that surges through the years... truth-bombing history on an almost pagely basis."
"It's a work of art. Sheldon creates a world in which every scent is pronounced and every scene is painted with exquisite colour. It's a tale of personalities, which explores the very extremities of human behaviour, and it's a lesson from history which takes the reader from the heart of London to the furthest reaches of the British Empire. Moreover, it's a lesson that's more relevant today than ever before."
PAK ASIA TIMES
"One of those 'unputdownable' novels. From the outset it is clear that this fictitious story, based on real life events,has an underlying moral message."
