DR. Jefferson Burke likes his life. It is full of routine and schedules that is predictable. Then one afternoon a odd, middle age man who introduces himself only as Columbo, enters his office and presents Dr Burke with an adventure that could change history as we know it.
As others have commented, this has a very "Indiana Jones" feel to it. We are taken from the hall of an Illinois University to mountains in Afghanistan, to the California coast on a whirlwind adventure to track down a legendary scroll, all the while being hunted by one of the most powerful and evil men in the world.
I really enjoyed this book. It was full of characters that were well written and you knew the good guys from the bad guys. Sometime you just need a book that you know who are all the players are and there are no surprises in that area. However the research and the vivid detail that the author presented in places that he wrote about were terrific. It was so well done I could pictures these places in my mind. I love writing like.
The only downside, was that for a christian novel we get very little about God or Jesus or Salvation. This is that thing that kept me from giving this book a five star rating. If all you are looking for is a good story, then you have found it.
