A letter written by Lawrence of Arabia hints at the existence of a British plan to grant independence to Palestine in the 1930s, and of a plot between a member of the British Royal Family and top Nazis. In a frantic chase through abandoned Underground tunnels, ancient catacombs and pits beneath the heart of London, Ayesha follows Lawrence's clues to his famous gold dagger, to an aged former spy who was once his lover, and to the desolate Cornish moors where she endures a cruel confrontation with her own dark past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gripping! Gripping and absolutely brilliant! Nick has an incredible way of intertwining fact with fiction. I had to ask myself many times “could this have actually happened?” The heroine Ayesha is so believable. I was hooked from the first page. I am looking forward to the sequel very much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fast-Paced Political Thriller Traitors’ Gate had me on the edge of my seat for the entire ride. Truly un-put-down-able! I love fast-paced thrillers of this sort – where one clue leads to another and another, with enough red herrings to keep you guessing. There’s also enough history and politics to make you want to learn more. It’s kinda like Dan Brown, with a mystery and tracking clues, but better written and more intelligent. I love the heroine, Ayesha, with her dark past, especially the fact that she’s an independent, feisty woman in her mid-30s. I gave a copy to my sister, who loved it as well. I'm looking forward to the next one!
