R that those responsible will stop at nothing to get what they want And what they want is nothing less than the lost Library of AlexandriaA cradle of ideas–historical philosophical literary scientific and religious–the Library of Alexandria was unparalleled in the world But fifteen hundred years ago it vanished into the mists of myth and legend–its vast bounty of wisdom coveted ever since by scholars fortune hunters and those who believe its untold secrets hold the key to ultimate powerNow a cartel of wealthy international moguls bent on altering the course of history is de Words are indeed the true weapons of mass destruction The Alexandra Link I picked this book up mainly for my fascination with the Library of Alexandria Unfortunately the novel didn't really spend that much on the Library itself Rather it was of a follow the clues type of treasure hunt in search of one of the earliest known bibles written prior to its subseuent Greek translations This ancient text if found would spell great turmoil for the Middle East and great power to the person or organization who has knowledge of its secrets As always this kind of story must include both good guys and bad guys who compete to be the first to unravel the mystery And of course they all carry guns and are not afraid to use themSteve Berry brings back most of the characters from the first book in the series Templar Legacy But he puts a little meat on the bone in this novel and we learn about the family of the main character Cotton Malone We also learn much about the twisted White House administration currently in power and the government bureaucrats who will stop at nothing to further their careersI found The Alexandria Link to be interesting than the previous series novel The ending was gripping and not at all predictable Warning those who might be offended by an author taking license with history particularly of religious nature should best steer clear of this book series Both The Alexandria Link and The Templar Legacy took shots eually I might add at Christians Jews and Muslims I try to ignore any personal offenses and just sit back and enjoy the ride
