  • Loved it

    Leiden University professor Peter de Haan gets entangled in a mystery when he finds himself in possession of an unknown mobile phone and he receives an anonymous text containing the words ‘Hora Est’ – ‘It is time’. St. Paul’s Labyrinth starts in 76 A.D., Mérida (Hispania) and gets you right on the edge of your seat as you enter a Roman theatre overseeing gladiator fights, brutal sacrifices and other barbaric rituals. A Roman man sitting in the audience mutters some words: ‘It is done.’ We then skip to the year 2015 A.D., 20 years later compared to Windmeijers first book The Confessions of St. Peter: during construction work on an underground waste container system, Peter de Haan sees his chance to take a look into the past of the city of Leiden. Due to the high density of buildings in the city there are only few places left where you can actually look back in time. While placing one of such containers things take a turn for the worse: the Mayor of Leiden nearly disappears in the dug hole and an underground corridor system partially gets exposed. In it the body of a young man is found and disappears just as quick as it was found. Peter de Haan gets involved by being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and gets personally involved as his good friend Judith Cherev is kidnapped. Soon he finds himself being a suspect by the police, so turning to the police for help in finding his friend isn’t an option anymore. Again Jeroen Windmeijer wrote another page turner. Faith, mystery and suspense yet again gets severely intertwined in very believable and convincing story. As you progress the story gets clearer and your view on passed events, religion and history gets shaken to its core. Written as if it could actually be true you find yourself sucked into the story. Can Peter save Judith, who is behind the kidnapping and what does ‘Hora Est’ mean? I enjoyed reading St. Paul’s Labyrinth. The author cleverly manages to take you by the hand and lead you through the city of Leiden and lets you believe that what happens in the story could just as well be the truth. You almost forget that it is a partially made up story. An exciting chase through an ancient city, combined with mysteries and traditions. Loved it.

  • not a good read in my view

    the premise of the story was good, but all the description of the streets and the long dissertation on Saint Paul diluted the story to the point of confusion

  • St Paul's

    While the premise held promise, I could not get invested in the long tracts of mythological and biblical verbage
