4.0 out of 5 stars FAST MOVING ADVENTURE, 1 Jun. 2013
This review is from: The Lost Library (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
THE LOST LIBRARY by A.M.Dean is a novel about the search for The Lost Library of Alexandria known to have been a major institution and source of knowledge in the ancient world. It was believed to have been destroyed by fire 2,000 years ago whether by accident or design clearly is not known.

In this story we have an old and very well respected professor who appears to be "The Keeper" of the knowledge about the library and a group of well placed people who seek details and will kill to obtain them. The professor is murdered but since he knows they are coming for him manages to pass some clues on to a colleague Emily Wess. Having some knowledge on the matter she sets out on an adventure tasked with finding and protecting his secrets. An unlikely heroine by way of her age and circumstances, she is smart enough to work through the clues and lead us though all the twists and turns of what develops into a fast moving adventure whist being followed by those determined gain the knowledge for themselves. There are cryptic clues, detective work and discoveries as she undertakes the task passed to her. Does she find the lost library ? .......why don't you give this book the chance to tell you. It is an ideal holiday read which will leave the feeling that finding out has been a pleasurable experience.

A.M.Dean is the pseudonym for a leading academic who knows what he is writing about. Some historical novels involving the ancient world however well researched don't hang together - this one does.
