Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With his chess-like plots and mysterious characters, Arturo Pérez-Reverte has established himself as the master of the intellectual thriller, a reputation again confirmed with The Nautical Chart.Chicago Tribune
“A treasure hunt for a Jesuit ship sunk by pirates off the coast of Spain is the plot on which Perez-Reverte’s new novel turns, but a love story is the real heart of this nicely crafted, carefully told adventure.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Adept as ever at mixing historical and contemporary material, Pérez-Reverte takes his genrebending to another level this time by merging the swashbuckling spirit of the best sea adventures with an introspective, philosophical meditation on the idea of navigation.”  Booklist (starred review)
“Spanish master Pérez-Reverte has a streamlined approach to novel writing: he takes a research subject say, fencing or rare books, and uses it to construct a story rich in suspense, detail, and character study.” Library Journal
