Publisher's Summary

Nine people have been slain in New York City, nine strangers with nothing in common - the apparent victims of a frighteningly elusive serial killer. Only one thing links the dead: postcards they received, mailed from Las Vegas, announcing the day they would die.

Assigned to the case is a legendary FBI profiler with a troubled past, a drinking problem, and nothing left to lose.... Abandoned to a monastery is an unwanted son born under a curse on the seventh day of the seventh month of the year 777.... Unprepared for a momentous discovery is a post-World War II expedition into the crypts of a clandestine medieval society.... but all lead to a secret embroiled in destiny, history, evil, faith, and corruption - and one terrifying truth that no one must ever know.

    "The Secret is out!"

    Not only is this story equal in depth to Dan Brown's novels, Cooper has picked the best narrator from which to share it. I kept nodding my head, as I read the book, agreeing with the motivation of each chacter. Really well done!

    "7th Son"

    Intriguing story. Narrator was excellent. Never heard of the author before. This was real delight.

    "Very Interesting Idea"

    Reads like two novels with the jumps back and forth between present day and medieval England. The execution of the plot is well done, but the characters are hopelessly formulaic and cliched. Actually would have liked to see Dan Brown's Robert Langdon be the protagonist, but the obligatory Dirty Harry type works just fine, too. Overall very readable, Glenn Cooper can be forgiven for the cardboard characters. 'The Library' was a very interesting idea.

    "Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Secret of the Seventh Son?

    This book had an interesting start but petered out fast...nothing engaged the listerner. Half way through, i just did not care what happened & i stopped listening.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Glenn Cooper again?

    probably not.

    "A Disappointment"

    This book leaves too many unanswered questions at the end and is also anticlimactic. There are many better thrillers out there, I would not waste the credit unless you really like this author. It is also too long and could be at least one to two hours shorter.
