Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

A huge American seller with impressive author endorsements (Deaver, Koontz, Patterson, Cussler, Child, Rollins). We were totally captivated and reckon on it being one of the best in this area for a long time. Lost books, ancient knowledge, secret societies and the CIA: the 'Queen of Espionage' launches a brand new history-rich, spy-laden conspiracy thriller trilogy.

If you like Gayle Lynds you might also like to read books by James Rollins, Robert Ludlum and Dan Brown.

Synopsis

The Library of Gold by Gayle Lynds

For centuries, emperors, historians, and even the Vatican have tried to locate Ivan the Terrible's magnificent Library of Gold - a fabled archive of gilded, bejeweled scripts and lost knowledge dating all the way back to the ancient Greeks. Now one of the volumes, The Book of Spies, has surfaced, and along with it a highly secret, shadowy cabal. They want their book back and they will stop at nothing to achieve their goal. When the CIA unearths a connection between the legendary library and a bank account linked to terrorists, they turn to rare books curator Eva Blake for help. When an attempt is made on Eva's life, she turns to the only person she can trust - Judd Ryder, a former intelligence agent with his own agenda and a troubled past. Racing from London to Rome, Istanbul to Athens, Judd and Eva must use all their wit and tradecraft to stay ahead of the deadly forces hunting them. They must do what no one else has been able to do: find the library AND stay alive.

Reviews

'Hands-down the best book I've read all year. Grippingly paced, poignant, surprising with every turn of the page, this novel stunned me. Here is a novel that is destined to become an instant classic. Wow!'
JAMES ROLLINS

'A modern classic ... Rich with history, breathtaking in plot and pacing, ripe with living, breathing characters we truly care about - or utterly fear - The Library of Gold will consume you from page one'
JEFFERY DEAVER

'Fast paced, thrillingly paranoid, page-turning, international adventure at its best!'
DEAN KOONTZ

'Lynds's rush-to-the-next-page excitement never stops'
CLIVE CUSSLER

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
