The Author

author picture

Born in 1945, Katherine Neville has had an extraordinary life, living in almost every state in North America. Aside from her work as an international bestselling author, she has worked as an international computer executive, a painter, photographer, and a waitress. Katherine lives in Virginia, Washington and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The Novel

Twenty years ago Katherine Neville's groundbreaking thriller THE EIGHT was a global bestseller -- a thriller in the style of THE DA VINCI CODE way before Dan Brown ever got there! In this long-awaited sequel, Alexandra Solarin, a chess-wizard and only daughter of Cat Velis, the heroine of THE EIGHT, arrives at her mother's Colorado lodge, only to discover that her mother has disappeared. Finding string of clues, Alexandra is soon joined by a group of people called there by her mother, including her aunt Lily, who explains the truth of Cat's past. In 1822, as the fortress of Sultan Ali Pasha falls to the Turks, the Sultan's daughter Haidee attempts a desperate journey taking her through Albania, Morocco and Rome, while carrying an invaluable object and seeking the one man who can help her: the poet George Gordon, Lord Byron. Ultimately both Alexandra and Haidee learn that their missions are even more desperate than they first seem, for both are players in a dangerous game, a game that began more than a millennium before either of them were born and that has the power to affect the fate of human civilization itself.


'The premise of THE FIRE is refreshingly original ! several notches above the world's bestselling author, Dan Brown.' Independent

'Katherine Neville has a remarkable ability to weave strands of history into one vivid tale. Readers who love culture, travel, and, of course, the detective work of research, will delight in this work.' Elizabeth Kostova, author of The Historian

'Katherine Neville's The Fire proves once again that she is the true grand master of international intrigue and historical mystery. Relentless, gripping, convoluted, and grand, this is a classic for the new millennium.' James Rollins, author of The Last Oracle

'One of the best novels I've read this year!The Fire is a compulsively readable novel for Da Vinci Code fans, as brilliantly complex as a grand-master chess match. I could not put this book down' Douglas Preston, author of The Monster of Florence

'I've been waiting for twenty years to find out what happened after The Eight. Katherine Neville answers that longing in a story that skilfully moves players around a global chessboard and expertly blends history, science, myth and more. Katherine Neville is the undisputed queen of the international suspense genre.' Steve Berry, author of The Venetian Betrayal
