It’s a majestic work, a poem that concerns everything, that reflects everything. I read it for the first time twenty-five years ago, in Latin, as a university student. It was an unforgettable encounter, maybe the most satisfying reading of my life. To understand this poem I had to be persistent, translating every word. I had to devote myself to an ancient and demanding foreign language. And yet Ovid’s writing won me over: I was enchanted by it. I discovered a sublime work, a living, enthralling language.

What James Patterson says

This book floored me as a younger reader. I think it drove me into writing thrillers, because I realized I couldnt do anything at his level. So I decided to try something I might be capable of doing well. I had read a few thrillers and thought I might be able to write in that genre.
