Beschreibung

From the best-selling author who co-wrote three books with Robert Ludlum comes a thriller about a rare-book expert who must find the Library of Gold, believed to contain books lost for centuries and secretly controlled by the world's most powerful and richest men - who will stop at nothing to protect their interests.
Ann Blake, a rare-book expert and conservator, was imprisoned for a drunk-driving accident that she doesn't remember, one that resulted in the death of her husband, a famous rare-book expert. But she is freed from prison by CIA undercover agent Tucker Anderson in exchange for her help and expertise on the Library of Gold, a legendary collection of books that have been lost to the world for over a century.
Sent to an exhibit on the Library of Gold at the British Museum, Ann sees the one person she never expected to see again: her dead husband, Charles. After Charles first flees, then tries to kill her, Ann finds herself in the midst of several powerful, secret forces who either want her dead or want to use her to find the Library of Gold. The only person unequivocably on her side is Matt Kelly, who is seeking the people responsible for his father's death.

Kritikerstimmen

"Gayle Lynds is one of the best suspense writers in the world. The Book of Spies is a completely unique work, but for the purpose of inciting all of you to read it, let me say Da Vinci Code meets Bourne Identity-which happens to be completely accurate." (James Patterson)
"Today's finest espionage writer" (Lee Child)
"A modern classic...Rich with history, breathtaking in plot and pacing, ripe with living, breathing characters we truly care about--or utterly fear--The Book of Spies will consume you from page one." (Jeffrey Deaver)

Hilfreichste

Great book

A brilliant story, great charakters, very good narator.
This book is a mixture of a James Bond story and Lara Croft.
The story is great, the details well-thought-out. You'll be all on edge if you like spy stories and Tomb Raider.

I recommend listening to "Masquerade" from Gayle Linds after that.

nicht schlecht

zu Beginn etwas verwirrend entwickelt sich die Geschichte zu einem sehr spannenden Ende hin. die Handlung ist manchmal etwas schwer zu verfolgen aber nicht langweilig
