Review of The Fragment

The Fragment


In Davis Bunn’s The Fragment, antiquities expert Muriel Ross travels from the United States to Paris on a quest shrouded in mystery. Accompanied by a high-powered senator and propelled by unexpected events, she takes an unforeseen detour to Constantinople where she must use her incomparable skills as if lives depended on it, because they do.

Set in post-World-War-One Europe, The Fragment is a work of historical fiction. For the majority of the book, the plot is slow-moving and keeps readers waiting for the other shoe to drop. In addition, there is an element of mysticism that may bother some.

However, Davis Bunn remains a master at descriptive narratives, and his writing engages the senses while his characters grab the heart. All in all, The Fragment is an entertaining read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
