It's a secret that could yield unimaginable wealth, undermine two major religions, and change the course of Western civilization. Two ruthless, ancient organizations are willing to do anything to get their hands on it. And August has the span of one transatlantic flight to figure it out. If he fails, those he holds most dear will die. If he succeeds, he'll destroy a national treasure. The clock ticks, the suspense mounts, and the body count rises as August pits his knowledge and his love for his family against the clock, secret societies, and even Johannes Gutenberg himself.
A fairly intriguing story unfortunately spoiled by a totally untalented (and unnamed) reader. Breathlessly read at a break-neck pace, there is little inflection or vocal characterization to animate the telling of the story. I guess I've been spoiled by the likes of Richard Ferrone, George Guidall and Simon Vance, but in the world of audo books, the talent of the reader is crucial to the quality of the experience.
