A STUNNING REVIEW
In THE DEADLIEST THIEF, June Trop brings to life a fascinating figure in 1st Century CE Alexandria, Miriam bat Isaac. Despite its ancient setting, the action, conflicts, and characters come across realistically, even vividly. You will feel very much there as you witness a crime of murder, jealousy, and greed.
There is a scene in THE DEADLIEST THIEF in which the villain is led to a cache of jewelry, and I want to tell you that the trail through underground tunnels, past dungeons, and what have you, was brilliant. I truly felt the tension these characters were experiencing.
If my prediction is successful, then before long, June Trop’s work will be made into a movie. It has the shading, atmosphere, and mystique to make an entrancing motion picture.
