    This is actually one of the best books I've read this year. Tolley combines conspiracy theories, religious intrigue and solid characters in The Logos. This is a page turner from beginning to end. I must admit that I did not get every single solitary detail in the book, but that did not take away from the read in any way. I would recommend this book to everyone who likes suspense and thrillers told with solid writing.

    By Mark Tolley The Following are all reviews from the Authonomy website "Dan Brown move over. Actually, I see more potential here than in the Davinci Code. You have a thriller, with all the threads weaving in and out to create a marvelous story, a page turner with the mysterious suspicion of myths creeping into today.. I really like this. Your character development is very thorough: they're rich many-faceted. Ilike the Big Brother aspect too with Jenny the inventor and having a relationship with the politican. I cannot think of a single thing that isn't great." "This is fabulous.....Thriller writers are under pressure to keep to pace, even when filling in backdrop....You manage that brilliantly....I found myself racing through this......" "The booth is empty . . . there was no way he could have got out . . . they couldn't have lost him!" Well, I guess they could. You haven't lost me, though, I'm coming back to read more of the thriller. It's got many... More > different avenues where it can go. When you're dealing with the Freemasons and the Bildeburg Group, anything can happen and probably will." "A very interesting and enthralling read. I love the archaelogical/astronomy connection within the story. Well woven into a really good novel of the top grade." "Never having read The Davinci Code because it received such a drubbing by the critics - I came to Logos without any preconceived ideas and so no comparison made! I thought the title interesting and original and that's what attracted me in the first place. Not disappointed! Logos is a good read, a book that I shall enjoy." "Interesting content, fantastic premise and a fast-paced, delightful" "This is an exciting and original book whose pitch outlines a great plot. Your characters are well drawn, and come vigorously to life. Jenny is a very attractive, easy to relate to, central character. Adam is an unusual person, sculptor, lecturer, ex-army. Richard, although clearly he won't be part of the future plot development, is still an interesting and individual person for the short time we know him. All these people have inter-linked relationships, which provoke our interest. Adam's dreams and his childhood background make him someone we want to read more about. Jenny is also a character whose background helps to make her real. Your settings, particularly in Bath, are beautiful and well described. Your style is clear and flowing, and your dialogue is very natural." "A very interesting and enthralling read. I love the archaelogical/astronomy connection within the story. Well woven into a really good novel of the top grade..." "It's a complicated premise, and a wonderfully enticing mixture you're serving up in this novel, packed with incident and freemasonry has a cachet all of its own." "Your story, with the promise of glimpses into freemasonry and associated conspiracies, is indeed 'a potent brew.' There is still a powerful mystique to contemporary freemasonry, whilst its origins and its extraordinary influence across the world have been the subject both of fiction and non-fiction. However, I think your premise is undoubtedly original and your story, through the prologue and the narrative on Barabbas to the link with Adam's nightmare, promised a new perspective in a new voice." "Well the brilliant pitch hooked me for a start and on starting to read the first paragraph does its job beautifully, I was surprised to read about an 85 year old man climbing but the writing was brilliant and the end of the paragraph is so sad. It also makes you want to read on as you want to why this is happening." "Masons, conspiracies, The Bildeburg group, ancient astronomy, maths, fast cars, murder… It's a potent brew, and one that you dish up with considerable panache." "The Scenes in Cologne Cathedral Rock!" "The way you entwine all those facts with your fiction and all those myths with reality is most impressive. It becomes near impossible to fathom where the real world ends and your imagination begins, and that's seductive and fascinating"< Less
