“And enjoy it I did! Who would have thought that Milton’s De Doctrina could form the basis of a murder mystery! I am sending the Amazon link to some Miltonic friends.”
– Gordon Campbell, Professor of Renaissance Studies, University of Leicester ; author of John Milton: Life, Work and Thought (with Thomas Corns, 2008).
“A gripping mystery set in the world of scholarship, pitting the poet Milton’s lofty religious ideals against the hatred and violence of religious intolerance.”
– Dr. Jonathan Helfand, Emeritus Professor of Jewish History, Brooklyn College – CUNY
“Barry Libin displays a deft and subtle hand with his Milton work. Dr. Libin’s astute and nuanced work with Milton’s treatment of evil is highly impressive.”
– David Birnbaum, author of Summa Metaphysical
“For those who love adventure stories, this is a book worth putting on the same shelf with the Da Vinci Code. . . . You may accept its thesis as a possibility, or reject it as a far out claim, but either way, this I promise you: you will never think of John Milton in quite the same way after reading this book.”
– Jack Reimer, S. Florida Jewish Journal
