    Description
    A cave-expedition to the remote borders of China and Tibet unearth enigmatic discs that are believed to be of extraterrestrial origin. But their discovery is quickly squashed and erased from official records. When venture capitalist Mark Steinberg launches Linguistics, Inc. and unveils cutting-edge Nanotechnology-based communication, an enthralled human race is ready to proclaim the written and spoken word a thing of the past. But unknown to the world, Linguistics is setting the stage for total control. Leading the scattered resistance movement, Lance Michener wants to shut down the Linguistics network before the damage is total and irreversible. At the center of the conflict is the hunt for the mythical Book of Thoth - the Book of Wisdom of the Gods; a Book that contains the secrets of the language of all earthly species and languages yet unknown. And as Linguistics ushers in an era of global mind control, the race is on to prevent The Book from falling into the wrong hands.

    Reminds one of Indiana Jones, Dan Brown and Wilbur Smith.

    A gripping storyline, combined with a fast pace. Plausible "ancient trap mechanisms" encountered by the expedition team. Misquita's signature style of introducing a lot of seemingly-unrelated "threads" in the first half of the book, and then connecting them all together eventually in the bigger plot. And yes, plenty of perfectly-scripted action scenes too. Despite the fact that the editing isn't perfect, and some of the characters are not given as much attention as they deserved, it is quite ...

    Another fast-paced, action-packed read

    After a great debut with Haunted, Douglas Misquita set the bar high, and his sophomore effort 'Secret of the Scribe' does not disappoint. When the book was announced, I was a bit disappointed as I was hoping for another book in the Ingram series (*hint*).
    The plot differs a lot from his first book, but it once again a fast paced page turner. The book is action-packed right from the get go. The book transports you to various locales, each vividly described. The basis of the book is the hunt fo...
