Overview

It was the most renowned and respected shrine in the Roman Empire, the object of veneration by Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, Octavian, and a host of other luminaries. It stood for centuries within a sacred precinct the size of a large town at the heart of the greatest Greek city in the world. Yet it disappeared without a trace, creating the greatest archaeological enigma of the ancient world. What became of the tomb of Alexander the Great? Does any part of it still survive? Find out in the latest installment of the New York Times bestselling series by Charles Brokaw, The Oracle Code.

When word of the tomb's secret location and the treasured wisdom of the Oracle of Delphi it may hold materialize in the code of an ancient scroll in Afghanistan, Harvard linguist and archeologist professor Thomas Lourds must quickly find out. That is if the evil forces that wish to obtain the treasure that the tomb holds doesn't stop him first. Russian President Nevsky and his secret police will stop at nothing to harness the power of what the tomb may hold - power to control the world as Alexander the Great did. When the Taliban catches wind of the discovery they’re also dangerously hot on the trail.

    The plot line is not as complicated as a Dan Brown novel, but if you like historical data a good read.

    Recommended if you like a fast moving .......thriller

    Not knowing who will get shot next by a "crazy person" who thinks what his leader wants. And if there will be anyone still alive at the end. Set in Afghanistan, Greece, and Russia modern day time. It helps to have some knowledge about Alexander the Great.

    Not Dan Brown

    This story was contrived and never well-resolved. The code and all the hints were scattered, and not well connected. Call it Code Light. The underlying story of international intrigue and retribution was actually fhe best part of the tale.
