    1. This seems to be a short story ebook exclusive from established author Tom Harper but I don't know why there has been no marketing for it - perhaps the publisher are doing an experiment. It's about a British student named Paul specializing in Ancient Greek religion and working part time at the Zurich Museum who encounters a pair of unusual art collectors, Ari and Valerie, after closing hours at the museum. They bribe him into convincing the private owner of one of the twelve Orphic tablets that [...]


    2. I read this story and and was really confused at the end. It seems to be the telling of a patsy in a heist , and hes pretty pathetic, and the characters seemed mysterious since you knew nothing of them. It wasn't long enough to learn anything about the players in the story. It really didn't explain anything about the tablet other than they were mysterious and from a ancient cult.Also it seems incredibly short with five chapters,at first I though perhaps its a preview or novella- prequla but the [...]


    3. I have to admit to owning 6 Tom Harper books and not having read any of them, they glare at me menacingly from the To be read pile (TBR) and lose out to demands to read and review. This means i have had no real chance to experience his writing. Until now.This sort of taster short story is an excellent idea, not only do i think Tom Harper has a very readable fast paced style, but his plot line sucked me in immediately. I HAVE to read The Orpheus Descent and once im finished with that i will get s [...]


    4. I found this short story ebook free at . I've never read anything by Tom Harper and it sounded interesting, so I thought I would give it a try. I liked the writing style, unfortunately, the story really did not make much sense, especially the ending. I thought it would be about an ancient tablet, but it was more about a poor sucker who was conned into helping two thieves steal the tablet. Not sure if I would read anything else by this author.


    5. The ChoiceAn interesting short story about the circumstances surrounding the main character's biggest choice in his life. When presented with a situation out of control, what would one choose to do? And there in await the consequences.


    6. Paul is doing his doctorate as well as working part-time at a museum in Zurich, Switzerland. He is way behind on his thesis deadline - 6 months behind - and the university have stopped his funding until he hands something in. One night, the museum is closing when a very wealthy couple stride in and demand to see the statue of Aphrodite - it'll only take a few minutes, they assure Paul, and the big man flashes a wad of cash for the favour. After sheepishly showing them the statue and ushering the [...]


    7. Greed is such a wonderful thing. It is as if some people think that if it sounds too good to be true, then it must be true. "The Twelfth Tablet" is the tale of a man who fell for such a scheme. As sometimes happens his falling led to murder and mayhem.Upon closing the museum one evening Paul Mitchell meets a couple who make him an offer he cannot refuse. Ari and Valerie wish to see the museum’s Aphrodite statue in return for donating a large sum of money “to the museum”. Paul finds himself [...]


    8. Many years ago, twelve tablets were created as a guide to the afterlife. Eleven of those tablets were in museums - but one was still in the hands of a private owner. The story centres on Paul, who is a student of Ancient Greek religions and working at the Zurich museum. One night, just after closing, he is approached by two people, Ari and Valerie, and propositioned. Help them take photos of the twelfth tablet and Paul would be handsomely rewarded. Seemed too good to be trued it was.A lot of act [...]


    9. This was a very good read. Non-stop action and excitement. The writing was beautifully descriptive. Harper has a true way with words.The excerpt from The Orpheus Descent: A Novel was also very intriguing. It included the first two chapters of the novel, which were just as captivating as The Twelfth Tablet. Definitely plan on reading The Orpheius Descent and more of Tom Harper.


    10. The prose is solid, but this short story doesn't really add up to much. It's the story of a patsy in the heist of an ancient Greek "tablet" (which seemed, anachronistically, to be on paper). There are hints of the supernatural/mythological, but it's possible that it's just a theft, and nothing more. By the end of the story I was shaking my head and asking myself, "WTF?" And not in a good way.


    11. The beginning of this was promising, but then , it just kind of abruptly ended. The author set up a situation where an academic is tempted by possible employment and $$ to provide access to a precious antiquity. Then things go very wrong and they do so much more quickly than they should.


    12. This book was just a teaser to make me one to read "Orpheus Descents" or so it seemed. The plot here was a bit weak, but the shortness of the book certainly made it hard to elaborate. Still, I want to read Orpheus:)


    13. I did not realize this was a short story until I was done reading it. I was disappointed because I thought the premise was interesting and would have liked to see it fleshed out into a novel. I did not particularly like the language and there was one scene that was a little uncomfortable.


    14. Not what I had expected. It was pretty straightforward and a quick read. The characters weren't as relatable like most books are. They're actions all made since though. There was plenty of action and enjoyable, none the less.


    15. I'm not entirely sure what the point of the story was, it was too short for anything to be explained properly.


    16. The idea was interesting but the story didn't excite me. It was predictable and dull, in direct contast to what it should've been.



    17. This was a decent enough read about a young english man studying abroad who is lured into committing murder and theft by two unscrupulous villians


    18. Very interesting thriller Although this short story has some elements of "The Da Vinci Code", it was nonetheless very exciting and made me want to read more about the tablets.


    19. I'm not really sure how to rate this. It was so short and it really had the potential for a great story behind it. It felt a little rush and I felt a little cheated, I wanted more.


    20. OMG Need the next book!!!!! Like yesterday!!!!! Leaves u hanging at the edge of your seat!!!! I went back thinking i had pressed the book to the last page on accident


    21. so basically a guy meets to completely strangers who first harrass him and then ask him to rob a multi millionair banker and all he says is "Yes"? what the hell


    22. teaser for orpheus descent, read this one first, then orpheus. very enticing, had to read orpheus, didn't regret it at all. it definitely did its job as a teaser/hook.
