The Genesis Secret by Tom Knox

After a near death experience with a suicide bomber in Iraq, journalist Rob Luttrell gets an easier assignment writing a story about an archaeological dig in Turkish Kurdistan that potentially is one of the oldest temples found.  As questionable events happen and the head of the dig project dies in an “accident”, what started as a pie job for Rob ratchets up to be a deadly game for him and Christine, an assistant at the digs.  Concurrently in Great Britain, Detective Mark Forrester handles a set of grisly serial murders that prove to have a connection with the archaeological finds and the Kurdistan region in the Middle East.

For sure, The Genesis Secret has Da Vinci Code elements – shocking murders, conspiracies, you name it.  I wouldn’t classify it as high fiction, but the book works well as a page turner, though not for the faint of heart.  The archaeological dig of Gobekli Tepe is actual, although the author definitely used some literary license to spin this tale of murder and mayhem.

Don’t read it too late at night.
