Shelves: I may prefer Arturo-Perez Reverte when he writes his historical adventures featuring Captain Alatriste, but his contemporary thrillers are not without merit.

As a thriller set in the clerical world and dealing with mysterious murders, church politics, high finance and crises of faith, the book I may prefer Arturo-Perez Reverte when he writes his historical adventures featuring Captain Alatriste, but his contemporary thrillers are not without merit. As a thriller set in the clerical world and dealing with mysterious murders, church politics, high finance and crises of faith, the book reminded me more of Umberto Eco rather than Dan Brown. It is more concerned with cultural heritage, spiritual identity and careful characterization, rather than trying to be provocative, speculative and fast paced. In fact one of my main issues is with pacing, where I often felt the plot was having a sedate siesta under the hot Andaluzian sun, waiting for the night and the narrow, meandering alleys of the old Santa Cruz district in order to get some progress made.
