Book Review: The Columbus Code

18 Sep

UnknownThe Columbus Code is just that the true, historical puzzle few could comprehend until today. Consistent with great historical fiction of our time, New York Times best-sell author Mike Evans pens a story replete with intrigue, adventure, and brutal persecution. The story begins with John Winters, an American Secret Service agent, who unravels centuries old truths about Christopher Columbus and the real drama that lay behind those famous voyages to the Americas.

 

mike-evansMIKE EVANS is a #1 New York Times best-selling author with more than 25 million copies in print, including Christopher Columbus: Secret Jew. He lives in Fort Worth, Texas. He is the Chairman of the Board of the Ten Boom Museum in Holland (tenboom.org) and also of the Friends of Zion Museum in Jerusalem (FOZHC.org). Evans is founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Team (jpteam.org) and has sixty published books.

 

My Impressions:

The Columbus Code is an international suspense novel reminiscent of The DaVinci Code. Filled with ancient documents, terrorist threats and a secret society determined to establish a one-world government, Mike Evans’ novel is perfect for those who like conspiracy theories and last days narratives. I found this book unputdownable!

John Winters is a Secret Service agent on administrative leave due to an operation that went south. His past and present have collided to keep him off-duty until he opens up to his government psychiatrist. His strained relationships with his only daughter and much younger brother and recent death of his mother keep Winters isolated and paralyzed by fear and doubts. A simple request to continue his mother’s genealogical search turns deadly and threatens not only his family members but his country.

The Columbus Code is definitely plot-driven. Fast-paced and adrenaline-laced, it kept this reader turning the pages. I finished it in record time! The elements of secrets shrouded in history and mystery, a shadowy Brotherhood with evil intentions, and a conspiracy among nations to upset the US economy were interesting and seemed a bit too real. Although the emphasis was on plot, not character, I still connected with John, his daughter Maria and Sophie, an academic and love interest for John, and worried for their safety. Did I say the book seemed very real?! The author also includes hints of the End Times with references to the antichrist and blood moons. Some of the bad guys get away and some of the good guys are missing at the end, so I think there will probably be a sequel to come. I hope so, because The Columbus Code left me wanting more.

Recommended.
