An ancient knowledge. A conspiracy of silence. A secret to kill for. On the seventh day of the seventh month, the seventh son of a seventh son is born to ominous prophecy on the Isle of Wight. Centuries later, in 1947, Winston Churchill is called out of retirement to deal with an unprecedented archaeological discovery that threatens to derail postwar reconstruction. Soon afterwards, in Roswell, New Mexico, an alleged UFO sighting heralds the establishment of a secret military complex in Nevadaa base that comes to be known as Area 51. In present-day New York City, Will Piper is reluctantly forced to interrupt his dissolute spiral into retirement when his superiors at the FBI assign him to the high profile Doomsday serial-murder case. The victims have nothing in common, except for one detaileach of them received a postcard foretelling their date of death. But just when Piper finds a credible lead, hes taken off the case. Continuing the investigation on his own, he must outwit the ruthless team of covert operatives from Area 51 who are protecting the governments greatest secret. From a medieval monastery to a cutting-edge government laboratory, Library of the Dead spans centuries and continents to deliver a richly detailed, highly researched and sharply written exploration of fate and free will.

Day 4 #AdventRecommends
I picked this one up from a charity shop because I liked the look of the cover!!!! Never heard of the author at this point. Read it not expecting much and was totally engrossed and blown away & virtually read in one sitting! The whole trilogy was good but loved this one especially. Great historical element and great thriller aspect. In fact think I want to read it again. Also published under The Secret of The Seventh Son.

candority I love the story that goes along with your recommendation. It‘s such a great feeling when a book you pick up on a whim ends up being fantastic! 12mo
Andrew65 @candority The best feeling in the world! 12mo

This is one of the #MelodiousMusicals I didn't know so researched it.. This brought to mind for me the excellent first book in the Will Piper Trilogy by Glenn Cooper, entitled Library of the Dead with some very special librarians - cannot say any more without giving away the plot. Read this book with zero expectations, just picked it up based on the cover at a charity shop., not knowing the author. When I read it I just fell in love with the book!

CrowCAH Sounds like a “tomb” of a book! 😉 2y

For my #paperbackwriter I have chosen Glenn Cooper. I picked this book up from a charity shop, not having heard of him and not really expecting much. After starting the book I was totally hooked and couldn't put it down! I loved the originality of the story and the historical connection of the story. Really enjoyed the whole trilogy but this book just felt special for me. Love it when this happens, especially when not much is expected! ❤️❤️❤️

Cinfhen I so agree, and your review has peeked my interest 🙃stacked!! 3y
Andrew65 @Cinfhen Hope you enjoy it, I definitely did. 😊 3y

No es un mal libro, hasta incluso te engancha. Me recuerda un poco al tipo de novelas de Dan Brown. Es una lectura rápida y hasta entretenida.
