The Book of Spiesby Gayle Lynds
Synopses & Reviews
For centuries, emperors, historians, and even the Vatican have tried to locate Ivan the Terribles lost collection of magnificent works, the real-life Library of Gold. Now one of the volumes, The Book of Spies, has surfaced, as have its clandestine owners—a cabal of the globes most powerful, dangerous men.
“A thrilling, spy-laden, history-rich page-turner.”
—Library Journal (starred review)
When the CIA discovers a connection between the legendary library and a bank account linked to terrorists, they bring in rare-books curator Eva Blake. Soon an attempt is made on Evas life—and she is on the run. Determined not only to survive but to uncover the truth, Eva turns to the only person she can trust: Judd Ryder, a former intelligence officer with a troubled past and an agenda of his own.
“Hands-down the best book Ive read all year. Wow.”—James Rollins
Racing from London to Rome, Istanbul to Athens, its up to Judd and Eva to track down the gold-covered, bejeweled books in the fabulous library—and find a way to stay ahead of the men who will stop at nothing to protect their interests…and are dead-set on keeping their secrets hidden.
“Todays finest espionage writer”—Lee Child
