Editorial Reviews

Editors Select, June 2015 - Destiny has all of the elements you could want in a thriller – political intrigue, code-breaking, ancient prophecies, a hint of mysticism, and of course, murder. Tom Lowe puts it all out there in his latest standalone novel. When Paul Marcus - a former CIA code breaker still mourning the tragic murder of his wife and daughter - is called to Jerusalem to decrypt the lost papers of Sir Isaac Newton, he finds himself caught the midst of an international political and power struggle. Destiny is a fast paced can't-put-down thriller that requires the listener to suspend belief... But only just a little. —Laura, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

When former CIA code breaker Paul Marcus receives the call, he thinks it's a hoax. He's asked to analyze a cache of papers found locked in an old trunk. They were the last manuscripts written by Isaac Newton. Using Newton's math and notes, Marcus begins to see a pattern leading to a prophecy so frightening, to reveal it will change world events.
At the time of his death, Newton was searching for ancient biblical codes that may open a locked window into future events. Newton helped explain gravity - but could he do the same for human destiny?

A Good, but not Great Thriller

With mystery, adventure, conspiracy, and the potential end of life on earth as we know it, this story has all the elements of an epic novel. It doesn't quite have the writing to carry it off. This is "The DaVinci Code" meets "Raiders of the Lost Ark" with a bit of "The Bible Code" thrown in for good measure. Paul Marcus is a former NSA code breaker who took time off to break the genetic code is asked to carry on the biblical scholarship of Isaac Newton. He does so, but we're never sure how. Equal letter spacing is briefly mentioned, but the primary method of determining ancient prophecies is to put Newton's writings into a computer and expect magic. Marcus gets help from some wise sources, but their wisdom is never explained. Were these advisors ordinary mortals or something more? One clue requires the full moon each November to be in the exact same position in the sky. (I hate to break this to the author, but this doesn't happen.) The book treats some biblical passages such as "Now I see through the glass darkly, but then face to face" and "They shall beat their spears into plowshares" as obscure texts that would only be familiar to biblical scholars. I'm no biblical scholar, but they are very familiar to me. The former passage is a partial metaphor for this book. We see key prophecies through a dark glass filter, but they are never fully explained.

Fun adventure!

I'm not sure where the other commentors were coming from, but I really enjoyed Destiny, narrator and all. It's an exciting adventure, with all the elements for an entertaining listen. Hidden codes, murder, deception, conspiracies.

The narrator did a fine job too in my opinion! Listen to the sample, you can tell for yourself if you do. It moved at a good pace. Lovely escapism fiction!
