There are over 120 million copies of Nora Roberts's books in print; she has managed to invest the Channel-hopping romantic saga with a new energy and zest. This is a prime example of her work, combining romance, wish-fulfilment and sheer storytelling energy to great effect. Thousands died with the Lusitania when she sank in 1916. But one passenger survived and transformed his life from that of a petty thief. He kept, however, a small silver statue, one of a priceless set of three, that ultimately becomes the family heirloom for future generations. Now, after the passing of a century, the heirloom has been snatched away. Gideon, Malachi and Rebecca Sullivan decide that they will recover their great-great-grandfather's treasure, thereby reuniting the Three Fates (as the set is called) and making their fortune. This formidable quest takes them from their home in Ireland on a daunting odyssey to Prague, Helsinki and New York. On their journey they encounter a sultry exotic dancer, a security expert with a dangerous knowledge of technology and a highly trained female professor who uses her knowledge of Greek mythology to aid their quest. Soon the Sullivans realize that they are up against a highly ambitious woman for whom there are no rules when it comes to acquiring the Fates. All the characters are vivid ones, drawn with colour and dash, and Nora Roberts's many fans will thoroughly enjoy this novel. (Kirkus UK)
