When a sacred relic is stolen from its subterranean guarded vault, Dr. Steven Cross, amateur cryptologist living in Tuscany, becomes embroiled in a deadly quest to decipher one of history’s most enigmatic documents – the Voynich Manuscript, a 15th century parchment written entirely in unbreakable code. Aided by the daughter of a murdered colleague, a trail of riddles catapults Cross from England to Italy to the Middle East. As a Byzantine web of ancient secrets leads him inevitably to a stunning, history-changing revelation, he’s stalked by secret societies and rivals who will do anything to possess a secret so profound it will change the world order.
In the tradition of Clive Cussler, Umberto Eco and Dan Brown, The Voynich Cypher is a racing thriller with countless unexpected twists, guaranteed to delight action/intrigue/thriller readers of all ages.
