The Sacred Cipher

I enjoyed this book! This is one that I can easily see as a motion picture - adventure, buried treasure, our unlikely heroes working together to unravel an ancient language and unlock a riddle. The main character, Tom Bohannon, stumbles upon a cache of hidden historical artifacts and within is a small scroll. While Tom and his friends work on reading the scroll, little do they know of the danger they are placing themselves in or that they have jumped feet first into one of the biggest mysteries of all time.
If you are looking for a great (clean) adventure story, I recommend this book! It's like going to the movies without the expensive tickets and the long lines for popcorn. :)

ABOUT THE BOOK

History's greatest secret could be tomorrow's greatest threat. More historically and biblically accurate than The DaVinci Code and just as adventurous as an Indiana Jones movie, The Sacred Cipher combines action and mystery to draw readers into a world of ancient secrets and international escapades.

When an ancient scroll appears in a secret room of the Bowery Mission in New York City, Tom Bohannon is both stunned and intrigued. The enigma of the scroll's contents will send Bohannon and his team ricocheting around the world, drawing the heat of both Jewish and Muslim militaries, and bringing the Middle East to the brink of nuclear war in this heart-pounding adventure of historical proportions. The Sacred Cipher is a riveting, fact-based tale of mystery and suspense.
