Former FBI Special Agent Will Piper solved and survived the "Doomsday Killer" case, and his reward was a forced early retirement. But the shattering truths he learned about the government's most covert operations won't let him rest, and now he's on the trail of a mysterious volume that's been lost for six centuries. This is the book that inspired Shakespeare and the prophecies of Nostradamus, and once Will gets his hands on it, his life will be worth nothing, his death sentence a top priority handed down from the very highest levels of power. Because there are some truths too dangerous for anyone to know - those that concern the future, world domination, and the end of everything.

Completely gripped me.
One of the best audible books I've listened to, out of hundreds.
I found this audiobook just surfing around the audible site. I'd never heard of this author before. I found a gem.
The author is a wordmaster and a master of ideas. The story is very fresh and original
and it completely gripped me.
The narration is perfect. Clear and concise, the narrator mastered his voices and accents.
The characters are well defined and interesting.
Definitely, I would listen to the first book first, and then this one.
If you like the first one, you will enjoy this one too. They are cut from the same mold and part of the same fantastic mythos.

A cross between Brown's DaVinci Code & Follett's Pillars of the Earth, Cooper gives a fast and thrilling read. I highly recommend reading The Secret of the Seventh Son, which is the prequel to this book, before delving into this one, as it provides greater depth into the history of the Books and the Order. Both novels are excellent.
