An ancient artifact is discovered in a dusty antiquities shop in Alexandria, Egypt - the long forgotten trinket soon becomes the center of the most deadly archaeological hunt in history. The 20,000 year-old relic is inscribed with what appears to be the long lost language of Atlantis.
The Atlantis Code will take you to a new level of mystery, wonder, adventure and excitement * Deepak Chopra * Short, gripping chapters move the action from Egypt to Russia to Africa to London. IndianaJones meets The Da Vinci Code. Look out, Dan Brown, Brokaw can play this game a lot better than most of your imitators * Booklist Review * In the 19th century, the equivalent of a blockbuster movie was a tense, thrilling novel, often told in serial form. We tend to forget that the modern novel need not be anything more significant than excellent entertainment, which is the perfect description of Charles Brokaw's The Atlantis Code . . . A rollicking adventure, with nonstop action and suspense. Readers can only hope that Brokaw is prepared to send Professor Lourds on further quests * Publishers Weekly * A winning combination of all the ingredients an adventure addict could want: great action, intrepid archeologists, dark conspiracies, cliffhangers, and a real sense of wonder -- Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling co-author of PAUL OF DUNE and author of THE EDGE OF THE WORLD Brokaw's hero is Indiana Jones without the whip. Who knew archeology could be so exciting? Wonderful entertainment. -- Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of THE TRAITOR Storytelling doesn't get much better than this. I've set this one aside to read again! -- David Hagberg, New York Times bestselling author of THE EXPEDITER
