“August Adams, a former archeobibliologist, now a rare book scout, is almost ruined financially. When on a flight over the Atlantic, he starts what he thinks is casual conversation with the woman next to him. He tells her he's on his way to New York to find the ever-elusive Gutenburg Bible. The woman suddenly changes moods and becomes hostile, telling him to get her that Bible. It turns out that the pages in that Bible have pictures, or illuminations, that hold the key to finding great treasure. And if he doesn't help her, she makes it clear that she will kill his eight-year-old son and ex-wife April. This book is a real page-turner. Packed with facts about the Gutenburg Bible and other old and rare books. It's exciting and informing without being boring. Great book.”
