Description

AN ANCIENT MANUSCRIPT HAS REMAINED CONCEALED FOR CENTURIES -- WITHIN ITS PAGES LIES THE KEY TO THE MOST UNHOLY SECRET KNOWN TO MANKIND. A sacred brotherhood has sworn, generation after generation, to protect this terrifying truth from those who would use it to unleash doomsday upon mankind. When the unthinkable happens, and the holy scroll is uncovered, the race is on to reveal the true meaning of the cryptic language. Only one man, Dr. Thomas Lourds, the world's foremost scholar of ancient languages, who we first met in the bestselling novel The Atlantis Code, can safely decipher this most deadly scripture.

Review quote

"Brokaw follows up his debut with an equally exciting and fast-moving adventure. This one really moves... a very entertaining thriller."--Booklist Praise for "The Atlantis Code:
""Short, gripping chapters move the action from Egypt to Russia to Africa to London. Indiana Jones meets The Da Vinci Code. Look out, Dan Brown, Brokaw can play this game a lot better than most of your imitators."--Booklist"In the 19th century, the equivalent of a blockbuster movie was a tense, thrilling novel, often told in serial form. We tend to forget that the modern novel need not be anything more significant than excellent entertainment, which is the perfect description of Charles Brokaw's "The Atlantis Code". ...A rollicking adventure, with nonstop action and suspense. Readers can only hope that Brokaw is prepared to send Professor Lourds on further quests."--Publishers Weekly"If you enjoyed the Da Vinci Code, "The Atlantis Code" will take you to a new level of mystery, wonder, adventure and excitement. This book will enthrall you and at the same time connect you in a very intimate way with the mystery of your sacred existence."--Deepak Chopra "A winning combination of all the ingredients an adventure addict could want: great action, intrepid archeologists, dark conspiracies, cliffhangers, and a real sense of wonder."--Kevin J. Anderson, "New York Times" bestselling coauthor of "Paul of Dune" and author of "The Edge of the World""" "Brokaw's hero is Indiana Jones without the whip. Who knew archeology could be so exciting? Wonderful entertainment."--Stephen Coonts, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Traitor""" "Storytelling doesn't get much better than this. I've set this one aside to read again!"--David Hagberg, "New York Times "bestselling author of "The Expediter"
