For some time, Tom Harper has been writing elaborate thrillers that marry ironclad narrative skills with some of the most elegantly understated writing in the field; he’s the thinking person’s Dan Brown. Actually, Harper deserves the latter’s success — and more, as Harper is comfortably the better writer. The Lazarus Vault assembles a variety of elements: vulnerable heroine, a labyrinthine plot and lashings of atmosphere, to considerable effect – it’s another winner for the author, who is currently Chair of the Crime Writers’ Association.
