Meticulously researched, this richly textured debut novel will capture your imagination from the beginning, pull you into the intrigue and adventure and never let go. An extensive cast of characters complements the story’s intricate details, including origins of the Koran.

Mohammed Atareek believes the Topkapi Codex will prove the Koran has been changed many times. He’s aligned with a network of re-searchers who are being murdered at an alarming rate. He crosses paths with Angela, a professor who is in the Middle East doing research. Staying one step ahead of the bombings in Beirut and the subsequent border closings, they make their way to Istanbul where the Codex beckons. But their journey isn’t over. Traitors are at the highest levels and even Angela has an agenda of her own. (PROMETHEUS, Sep., 430 pp., $25.00)
