Great start, massively disappointing finish,
This review is from: The Lucifer Code (Paperback)So I've read enough of these books to know the formula - strange new archaelogical find with implications for the whole world, mysterious forces chasing the lead protagonist, various femmes (fatale and otherwise), all building to an earth-shattering climax where the Truth is revealed. etc.
This book ticks all the boxes but in such a perfunctory manner that you'll be left feeling sorely disappointed. Unlike Dan Brown, the puzzles are neither clever nor well-explained, the characters are cardboard cutouts, and the story basically doesn't make sense. Worst of all, either through sheer laziness or in an effort to meet a publishing deadline, the author concatanates the finale into a few pages - what could have been an epic ending is definitely a disappointment.
In summary - don't bother
