"The Lucifer Code" by Charles Brokaw. Another adventure of Dr. Thomas Lourdes (The Atlantis Code) set in Greece and Turkey. I enjoyed "The Atlantis Code", so getting this novel to read was a bonus. Part biblical history, mostly thriller... in today's world Satan surely is walking the earth in some guise. In a genre I call "Biblical Sci-Fi", and one of my favorites...this novel was an excellent read! It does fit into the Dan Brown type novels, so I imagine his fans will enjoy this novel also.

"Peacemaker" by Dan Ranco...A Thriller. Being kind of a computer geek myself, I enjoyed the technology behind this novel. Crazed, power hungry,Corporate Computer CEO's unleash a virus, for revenge and Global Domination. Ha-ha-ha, how can it get any better than that? A fun and entertaining read.

"The Network" by Jason Elliot. A pre-9/11 spy/adventure novel set in Afghanistan. While normally avoiding "first person" viewpoint novels, I was 150 pages into this book, before I even noticed. The author paints a very personal account, with vivid characters. One gets into the mindset of a reluctant, but capable spy, thrust into the world changing climate of Afghanistan. Behind the scenes politics and back door deals at many levels provide some insights into what Terrorism is really about. This book is a great read!
