This is a half baked attempt at Dan Brown’s recipe of symbolism and great conspiracies.  I dislike Dan Brown’s writing, and I found out, through this book that I utterly despise Danielle Trussoni’s writing. I was so upset when I finished this book, had I been able to throw tomatoes at the author, I would have.   It was so bad. I muddled through endless pages of a half baked plot that involved great inserts from the book of Enoch, amateurish flashbacks, explanations about a race of angels that made no sense at all.

A young researcher is employed by a mysterious older man to work for him and find something, although what the something is, remains a mystery for most of the book.  The modern section of the book was set in ninety nine, but this version of New York city in the nineties lacked computers, the internet, mobiles.  A scholar without access to the internet?  A young, hip male free lance researcher with no cellphone?  Come on!   And there are more and more inconsistencies throughout the book.  I can go on more detail, but I promised that I wouldn’t give any spoilers in case someone wants to read the books I review.  Oh before I forget, this book is also slow moving and boring.  Really, it seemed I was reading an even worse version of the formulaic sort of thriller written by a few popular authors now a days.  And that, my friends, it is bad, as those thrillers are not really that great.

I didn’t understand the protagonists intentions or motivations.  You should save your money and skip this one.  I am usually not this virulent about any books, but I believe this harsh review was well earned.
