22 August 2010: Review by Mog's Blog: 'A fantastic read. You are transported to Elizabethan England in a vivid and horrifying way...'

1 September 2010: Review by Chris Simmons (Crimesquad): 'An extremely exciting adventure... You can see Forrester has a passion for our heritage and you can literally taste the history on every page. Sacred Treason is very well written and Forrester gives his readers a great sense of place. The plot is well thought out and gripping and any fan of the new-improved Historical thriller will be reaching for this book as an extremely competent and highly entertaining read.'
