The Lazarus Vault

800 years ago, one man wrote the legend that became the greatest quest in history...

Deep in the heart of London, the Monsalvat Bank is small, secretive and fabulously wealthy, with roots going far back into the middle ages. When Ellie Stanton, an impoverished graduate student, is unexpectedly invited to join the firm, the privileged world they offer looks too good to turn down.

Now Ellie is in a race against time, hunted by the bank and pursued by her past. Her only hope of escape is to unearth the secret hidden in the vault. But getting in is only the beginning...

    Interesting start, getting watered down towards the end. Absolute disappointment with the end, like author had lost ideas. Ending was somewhat forced and dull. However, parts were thoroughly captivati...

    A ripping yarn, heavily derivative of many tales of derring do, and very dependent on the Dan Brown formula.If you want a brain holiday, and some quite interesting insights into the world of private b...

  • Cedric

    A reasonable and enjoyable thriller of the "ancient mystery hints at a conspiracy that still has power in the modern world" school. There are a couple of narrative holes in it, and the ending is lame....
