Lovereading view...

What appears to be a financial thriller with the Chinese in an elaborate scam, turns into a religious conspiracy thriller with the secret of a text in the Manhattan Bank vaults in Terehan. With tension throughout, blackmail, kidnapping, chaos and mayhem, it’s good, fast, escapist fun. Well worth a read.

If you like Laurence O'Bryan you might also like to read books by Steve Berry, Sam Bourne and Scott Mariani.

Synopsis

The Manhattan Puzzle by Laurence O'Bryan

A global puzzle. A secret symbol. A conspiracy that ends in death. Perfect for fans of Dan Brown's Inferno. An international cover-up that could change the course of history...Sean has been tracking a symbol from another age. It provides a clue to a barbaric conspiracy. A puzzle with an answer feared for millenia. When Isabel wakes to find Sean hasn't come home she doesn't worry. At first. But when the police turn up on her doorstep wanting to interview him, she has to make a decision. Does she keep faith in him or does she believe the evidence? The symbol Sean and Isabel have been chasing will finally be revealed in Manhattan as one of the greatest banks in the world totters. Can Isobel uncover the truth before time runs out...or will she too be murdered? A thrilling, high-octane race to save civilisation that will engross fans of Dan Brown, David Baldacci and James Patterson.

Reviews

*'This stylish conspiracy thriller is a Turkish delight...combines plenty of stirring action with fascinating historical detail about a city and a country [Laurence] quite obviously loves.
Irish Independent

* 'A brisk plot...which draws the reader into a conspiratorial rapport...He's come late to fiction, clearly he means to enjoy it.
Telegraph

About the Author

Laurence O'Bryan was born in Dublin. He studied business, then IT at Oxford University. After going to England he paid for his own courses and began rising at 4AM so he could study and work at the same time. One early job was as a kitchen porter near the Bank of England cleaning the plates of the well connected. He stayed in squats in London and struggled for years. Laurence was first published by a school newspaper when he was ten, for a short story about aliens getting lost. Thirty-five years later, he attended a authonomy workshop and not long after was offered a publishing contract for three books. The first of which, The Istanbul Puzzle, won the Outstanding Novel award at the Southern California writer's conference in 2007.
