Reviews

"A compulsively readable novel" * Iain Pears * "A genuine treat, with its sneaky plot and richly textured storytelling. It also moves so fast that readers won't realize how smart it is" * San Francisco Chronicle * "Codex takes its place on the shelf [with] The Name of the Rose, Possession and A Case of Curiosities, and it's as entertaining as any of them" * New York Times * "Fabulously entertaining ... By turns fascinating, compelling, and deliciously disturbing. It's an intelligent thriller that truly is just that: intelligently thrilling" * Boston Globe * "Mesmerizing from start to finish ... A fabulous double-helix of a novel" * Baltimore Sun *
