    Carl Cravens says: "Great story, enjoyable British humour."
    "Great listen...if you don't mind page chimes"
    Overall

    This is a good book that continues the series but I have found that listening to what I call page chimes (the tone in children's books that let them know to turn the page) every few "pages" annoying. I can only hope that this is exclusive to this book since it wasn't present in the first book. The Narrator does a very good job reading and gives you the feeling of multiple actors playing the different roles of a play.

    In the powerful new thriller from the author of the international bestseller The Last Templar, a geneticist and a CIA agent on a deadly quest to find the most dangerous book in the world discover a secret that has destroyed everyone in its path for centuries.

    BillNapoli says: "Kept my interest!"
    "Bad editing, okay story."
    Overall

    The truly awful editing really makes this novel hard to listen to. There are no less than 2 locations were the reader tells the editor/producer to take it from a previously read point in an effort to read it differently. It doesn't help that the author through this and his previous book The Last Templar can't seem to find a thesaurus his characters only chortle never laugh, giggle, or chuckle and that the only mood he knows is dour. This novel too seemed to miss a lot of the interesting tidbits that The Last Templar had and is more Indiana Jones light. I will say other than that I was entertained but I didn't have to listen to it and felt fine with stopping it and listening to music instead of this book.
