Book Description

3 Jan 2013
When a sacred relic is stolen from its subterranean guarded vault, Dr. Steven Cross, amateur cryptographer, becomes embroiled in a deadly quest to decipher one of history's most enigmatic documents - a 15th century parchment written entirely in unbreakable code; The Voynich Manuscript. Stalked by secret societies, and aided by the daughter of a murdered colleague, a trail of riddles catapults Cross from England to Italy to the Middle East, where a Byzantine web of ancient secrets leads him to a revelation so profound it will change the world order.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable fiction. 9 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book reminded me of The Da Vinci Code, but if that was a 9/10, this was only an 8 [hence I gave it four stars]. But I enjoyed it enough to search for, buy and read other Russell Blake books - and with so much unread on my Kindle that IS a complement to the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable read 26 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
If you like adventure and intrigue, you will enjoy The Voynich Cypher. Nicely drawn characters, good pace and what made it more interesting is that this cypher does exist, you can look it up on Google images. Will certainly be reading more from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit like "The Da Vinci Code" ....... 4 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
.... but by a writer rather than by a hack. Some of the same general ideas (massive conspiracy, corrupt churchmen, international goings on, codes and ciphers) but a much higher standard of writing.

Not great literature, but a vast improvement on the general standard of the field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down 21 July 2013
By Mick
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Russell Blake is fast becoming my favourite author. I read a snippet of this book after finishing one of his 'Assassin' books & decided I would buy it. The story is well paced & the end of each chapter makes you want to start the next to see what happens. The characters are believable and described well enough to form a mental image of them. There are twists & turns throughout & the climax, without spoiling it, really makes you think 'what if...'. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes the mystery & intrigue type novels. One day Tom Cruise or better still Daniel Craig should play Dr Cross in the movie, it would be a winner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow 14 Oct 2012

What a follow up to the 1st Dr Cross book.
This has left me wanting more from this series, surely there will be more adventures for him???
The ending to this should be completely unbelievable but yet it isn't, for those conspiracy theorists among us, you could imagine this happening.
A enjoyable read and I hope we meet Steven Cross again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book I have thoroughly enjoyed 11 Aug 2012
By Frenchie TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Voynich Cyper is a well written story. I have enjoyed reading it, Dr Cross is a very likeable character and intelligent. But I have found it a little bit too easy. Too easy and too quick to decipher the document and a little bit predictable. I guessed quite early who 'liberated' the scroll (unusual for me). I would have loved more suspense and maybe more twists in the quest. But as it is, it is a very good story and I recommend it to anyone who wants action, a bit of conspiracy and a page turner. This book surely is. I will definitively check other titles from the author.
