Overview

The Library: Only a handful know it exists . . . It holds the world's most astonishing—and terrifying—information . . . But the one book that is the key to the greatest secret of all time . . . is missing.

Former FBI Special Agent Will Piper solved—and survived—the "Doomsday Killer" case . . . and his reward was a forced early retirement. But the shattering truths he learned about the government's most covert operations won't let him rest—and now he's on the trail of a mysterious volume that's been lost for six centuries. This is the book that inspired Shakespeare and the prophecies of Nostradamus, and once Will gets his hands on it, his life will be worth nothing—his death sentence a top priority handed down from the very highest levels of power.

Because there are some truths too dangerous for anyone to know—those that concern the future, world domination . . . and the end of everything.

    more from this reviewer

    For the intelligent reader in search of a GREAT escape, Book of Souls delivers!!

    I picked up Book of Souls by Glenn Cooper on a vibe after reading the back of the book and a few teasers. As a voracious reader who is always on the hunt for a great read, it was probably the best purchase I've made in the recent past. For any bibliophile who is in search of a thought-provoking, well-written, thoroughly intriguing, and masterfully creative yarn, this book does NOT disappoint. The historical mystery-style plot is richly woven, entertwining action in the present with events that took place hundreds of years ago; it all ties in together to create a suspensful, smart, page-turner that will leave you fully satisfied but wanting more! Book of Souls is a gem among rocks. Read it now!!

    Immediately captured my attention!

    I usually get a free sample before I buy a book for my Nook. This one captured my attention before I finished the sample and went to the top of my list of books to read. This was an exciting fast paced read with an interesting plot. I would definitely ready more books by Glenn Cooper.

    A real page turner!

    This book had me hooked from Chapter One! Total Mystery and intrigue about an anccient
    Book found in an old English estate sale. However, certain people do not want this book or it's contents to ever be seen by anyone else. This book will have you on the edge of your seat.
