Publisher's Summary

It was the most renowned and respected shrine in the Roman Empire, the object of veneration by Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, Octavian, and a host of other luminaries. It stood for centuries within a sacred precinct the size of a large town at the heart of the greatest Greek city in the world. Yet it disappeared without a trace, creating the greatest archaeological enigma of the ancient world. What became of the tomb of Alexander the Great? Does any part of it still survive? Find out in the latest installment of the New York Times bestselling series by Charles Brokaw, The Oracle Code.

When word of the tomb's secret location and the treasured wisdom of the Oracle of Delphi it may hold materialize in the code of an ancient scroll in Afghanistan, Harvard linguist and archeologist professor Thomas Lourds must quickly find out. That is if the evil forces that wish to obtain the treasure that the tomb holds doesn't stop him first. Russian President Nevsky and his secret police will stop at nothing to harness the power of what the tomb may hold - power to control the world as Alexander the Great did. When the Taliban catches wind of the discovery they’re also dangerously hot on the trail.

Narrator is not convincing

Good story but the narrator's reading is not conveying nor the energy nor the action. Quite emotionless and slow...

The Adventure Continues

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes, if you like a fast adventure with mythology as a background. I have enjoyed this author

What other book might you compare The Oracle Code to and why?

I purchased all 3 of this author read by Jonathan Davis. Not to be missed as this reader brings author's hero to life and makes all characters including all the female just wonderful.

What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr. Davis does such wonderful voices both female and male, that I have started a nice collection of his work. My fave is Sandra Brown's Mean Streak, a romance mystery.

Any additional comments?

Audible, if Mr. Davis has a Romance genre AKA, please advise as I would buy them all.
