A little disappointing because I found the main character rather annoying, and he seemed to have just the right skills and tools needed to get him out of sticky moments all the time. The historical research that went into this novel, however, made it interesting, as well as the twists and turns that raised the tension and momentum as the thriller progressed. The map has survived through the centuries, protected by a secret group, but secrets have a way of leaking to the wrong ears, and a struggle and race is on to protect the world from those who want the map to immense power. Journeying through Europe, we're hauled along through mazes, introduced to secret spies and face surprises around each corner.

Not, I thought, as good as Sphinx, but still entertaining. ( )

no stars - this is the kind of book that makes me want to give up reading. From the jacket blurb I knew it was going to be tedious but it exceeded my expectations. At 598 pages in length, I would only recommend buying it if you were going on a long haul flight to a developing country and you anticipated a bout of dysentery - the paper would be useful in such circumstances.

Uncomfortable mix of Cold War thriller and occult mystery. ( )
