Critical Praise

"A riveting and suspenseful page-turner that throws open a magical door to the past, revealing how history may influence not just our individual destinies, but the future of us all." 

New York Times Bestselling Author Steve Berry

"I do not believe in reincarnation, but I do believe in this writer's ability to make you want to believe. This is the page-turner-you-cannot-go-to-sleep-till-it's-finished thriller of the year. I love Ludwig Van Beethoven, and now I love M.J. Rose's THE MEMORIST."


"'All in time. All in time. All in time.' The phrase repeats metronomically at one point in M.J. Rose's THE MEMORIST, reminding us that time really is everything, particularly in this accomplished follow-up to THE REINCARNATIONIST.

Past and present do more than interweave in these pages; they wage fierce battles for primacy in the lives of the characters. Rose has crafted an intricate story that explores the mystical, emotional, political, and historical threads connecting a mysterious flute linked to Beethoven, a clandestine reincarnationist society, and the more contemporary horrors of international terrorism."

Robert Gray, Northshire Bookstore, Manchester, VT

"M.J. Rose does it again with THE MEMORIST another breathtaking thriller from the prolific best-selling author of THE REINCARNATIONIST. In this engrossing novel Rose interweaves a multiplicity of themes involving a quest to resolve issues from the past, the music of Beethoven, a secret society and the threats of terrorism. Only M.J. Rose could bring these plot strands together for a credibly incredible denouement. For a memorable read, experience THE MEMORIST."
