Archangels: The Rise of the Jesuits
Archangels: Rise of the Jesuits, contains many of the ingredients for a successful thriller. For me, those ingredients weren’t always harmonious. Tavakoli’s previous books have all been non-fiction and in the financial sector. The parts of her novel that relate to money seemed spot on. Her knowledge of the Vatican provided another successful ingredient for this novel. Character development, plot and dialogue fell a little flat for me. For a thriller, I was willing to overlook those distractions, and read through to the end, finding some entertainment, but not enough to highly recommend this book to others. Rating: Three-star (It’s ok) Click here to purchase Archangels from amazon.com.
