ABOUT THE BOOK:
History’s greatest secret could be tomorrow’s greatest threat More historically and biblically accurate than The DaVinci Code and just as adventurous as an Indiana Jones movie, The Sacred Cipher combines action and mystery to draw readers into a world of ancient secrets and international escapades.
When an ancient scroll appears in a secret room of the Bowery Mission in New York City, Tom Bohannon is both stunned and intrigued. The enigma of the scroll’s contents will send Bohannon and his team ricocheting around the world, drawing the heat of both Jewish and Muslim militaries, and bringing the Middle East to the brink of nuclear war in this heart-pounding adventure of historical proportions. The Sacred Cipher is a riveting, fact-based tale of mystery and suspense.
Because of a crazy personal schedule the past couple of weeks, I am only halfway through The Sacred Cipher. I have found it to be interesting reading; however it is so full of facts that I have found it slow going. But the stage has been set and I am hoping that part two will move along a bit faster. I would say that if you enjoy tales similar to the Davinci Code or archeological adventures such as Indiana Jones, you might find The Sacred Cipher right up your alley.
