The story then takes off from there, switching from Tweed and his search to the murderous monks, to the police officer investigating a series of unusual murders. These seemingly unrelated events, despite their macabre nature, are narrated in a style that elicits chuckles at first, that quickly morph into guffaws, as one improbable event after another—with the occasional digression to give the author’s satirical take on historical events—unfolds, the reader is sucked deeper and deeper into the thread of the story.
There is, however, method to this meandering, as the author pulls all these disparate threads together at the end into a conclusion that satisfies. The universe, which has been twisted into unimaginable shapes, is put back into a semblance of orderly disorder. I give this title four stars.

This is a great read for anyone who yearns for an altogether novel approach to tongue-in-cheek crime writing, whilst reacquainting themselves with hilarious situations and events from history...the discovery of America is an absolute hoot.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this book as an ideal escape, and in my opinion, the 5 star award is well deserved.
Tony Lewis, author of The Skullenia Novels
