Modern day readers in search of a thriller packed with action, intrigue, and espionage turn to authors like Daniel Silva, Vince Flynn, or Tom Clancy. Readers looking for historical drama may turn to Dan Brown or Bernard Cornwall. When I learned about the chance to read and review Mike Evans novel, The Columbus Code, I jumped at the opportunity. Initially, the book appeared promising and seemed to offer not only a good story but an inside look at the mysterious figure, Christopher Columbus. Unfortunately, the storyline in this book drags and the characters are not developed in a way that holds the attention of the reader. But the inability to hold the attention of the reader is not the greatest concern. The chief problem with The Columbus Code is the scanty discussion about the famous explorer. A small portion of the book is devoted to unwrapping the story of Columbus. Personally, I was disappointed with how The Columbus Code unfolded.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.
