Reviews – Four Equations

  • “Robert Landori writes marvelously intricate international thrillers…”

    Louise Penny

    New York Times bestselling author

  • “What I love about Robert Landori’s thrillers are the details he brings to his settings. Landori, who speaks seven languages and has lived all over the world, draws on his personal knowledge of places like Zurich and Budapest and the Caribbean. The excitement of his plot line is anchored in details of place and custom and culture, making his stories as much a travelogue as they are page-turner thrillers. Four Equations also draws on Landori’s knowledge of high finance as his hero unravels the dastardly doings of a couple of greedy Swiss bankers.”

  • “Four Equations” is an exciting thriller with an uncommon blend of financial intrigue, little known Holocaust truths, and family revelations spanning two generations. The author weaves a tale brought to life presumably from his own extraordinary experiences… a compelling realistic thriller that is a pleasure to read. Not to be missed.

  • “…. A gripping tale, told with élan and touching on a little-remembered facet of the Holocaust, namely the incredible challenges Jews, who had fled and survived persecution, had to face when trying to recover their money from those to whom they had entrusted it for safekeeping. I couldn’t put it down – read it cover to cover in one sitting!”

  • …The plot is very believable, as are the characters.  Brennan is a likeable protagonist, and Elize is engaging.  The “villains” are well portrayed and suitably reptilian (and if I may say so, typically Swiss!).  And of, course, the story ends nicely, with cosmic (or more accurately, legal) justice tidying things up. FOUR EQUATIONS IS A GOOD READ.

  • “Landori (Mayhem on the Danube, 2012, Havana Harvest, 2010, Fatal Greed, 2005, etc.) does a marvelous job of weaving an intricately detailed and suspenseful mystery. He’s at his best when evoking the horrors of Nazi aggression against Jews, and the themes of remembrance and moral responsibility recur vividly…. [The story] unfurls briskly and intelligently, with an astute sense of historical awareness. An exciting … tale of white-collar theft and historical tyranny.”
