    Cotton Malone retired from the high-risk world of elite operatives to lead the life of a rare-book dealer. But his quiet existence is shattered when he receives an anonymous e-mail: "You have something I want. You're the only person on earth who knows where to find it. If I don't hear from you, you will be childless." His ex-wife confirms that their teenage son has been kidnapped, and it becomes clear that those responsible will stop at nothing to get what they want: the lost library of Alexandria.

    What did you love best about The Alexandria Link?

    I love the very idea of a plot that touches on such a great marvel as the mythical Library of Alexandria.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Alexandria Link?

    Intelligent discussion and contrasts about discrepancies found in biblical scripture and the potential geo-political consequences that could result if such discrepancies were ever to invalidate the Bible as we have come to accept it today.


    Did Scott Brick do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Relatively good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Jason Borne meets Herodotus


    Any additional comments?

    The voice talent was over dramatic, at times his entonation and style distracted me from concentrating in the story being narrated. I was also dissapointed when at one point, one of the characters grabs a revolver and two magazines for it -- not every writter has to be a firearms expert but a bit of resarch goes a long way to maintain credibility.
