    The Probability Broach by L. Neil Smith (fulner)
    fulner: The probably broach is a story of government secrecy, and cover ups. Its the story of a adventure so filled with wonder it can only be called Science Fiction. It's a mystery that needs to be solved. You need to read this book

dan Brown didnt fail me on this one at all. When u really want 2 talk about a real science-fiction, action packed, suspense-filled novel, angels and demons is a good example. Robert langdon made my hair stand back there when he took the antimatter into that chopper. I was really wondering wat was gonna happen. It was really a big battle between science and religion ( )
  DigitalKB | Apr 13, 2020 |
As with The Da Vinci Code, very fast paced and exciting. I don't feel that the characters were very in-depth or likeable, but I'm still looking forward to reading the next book. ( )
  Linyarai | Feb 16, 2020 |
Seriously overrated. Not very good. Ditto for the movie... ( )
  scottcholstad | Jan 4, 2020 |
Plot had potential. In the hands of a writer who can develop characters better, this could have been 4 stars. ( )
  TSBresser | Dec 29, 2019 |
Twist after twist after twist and utterly unputdownable. Amazing. ( )

Romance, religion, science, murder, mysticism, architecture, action. Go!
added by Lemeritus | editKirkus Review (May 1, 2000)
 
Pitting scientific terrorists against the cardinals of Vatican City, this well-plotted if over-the-top thriller is crammed with Vatican intrigue and high-tech drama... Though its premises strain credulity, Brown's tale is laced with twists and shocks that keep the reader wired right up to the last revelation.

Book description
World-renowned Harvard University symbologist Robert Langdon recieved a summons to the Swiss CERN research facility to investigate the murder of one of their physicist. His murder was at the hands of the thought-to-be dead society known as the Illuminati. After his death, it is revealed that the Illuminati has stolen a very crucial piece of technology the physicist has invented, and they threaten to vaporize Vatican City during conclave. They also claim that they have kidnapped the four cardinals most likely to be elected pope and threaten to kill them. With the Swiss Army's hands tied as they attempt to keep this situation away from the media, Robert Langdon teams up with the physicist's daughter, Vittoria Vetra, to travel to the Vatican to end the chaos before midnight strikes.
