Review of ‘The Devil Will Come’

Posted on Updated on

Exploring Rome’s ancient catacombs, archaeologist Elisabetta Celestino discovers a strange pattern of astrological symbols that seem to point to a previously unknown pre-Christian sect. The Vatican, however, refuses to support her research. Ten years later, when a cave-in damages a vault that Elixabetta was exploring, events come to light that could challenge long-held religious beliefs, and she is called back to continue her research.

The Devil Will Come by Glenn Cooper is a chilling suspense novel that spans events from 1st-century Rome to the present day in Europe, taking the reader on a whirlwind ride of intrigue and suspense. An extremely well-written book with only one fault; the author does a lot of scene switching without warning that can, at first, be jarring, but in the end seems to work.

Despite the scene switching, though, this was a hard book to put down. I give it four stars.
