The Lost Codex by Alan Jacobson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Not my first Alan Jacobson novel but my first in this OPSIG Team Black series. I was a little daunted by the length of the book, but I should not have been as it is excellent and the pages flew past. Ancient documents threaten to destabilise the current world order. Religion as we know is very divisive and responsible for most of the world conflicts. These ancient religious scripts stand at the centre of a battle between foreign governments and religious extremist groups, endangering the lives of millions.
What makes this book exciting is the inclusion of all the right ingredients of spies, politics and a good dose of terror. The OPSIG team are tasked to find the documents and capture/eliminate those responsible for the attacks in the US. The story moves at a fast pace, providing a very thrilling and exciting read you don't want to put down. The author has skillfully linked current terror threats that are commonplace today to the existence of old religious scrolls to weave an excellent thriller.
