The Columbus Code is just that the true, historical puzzle few could comprehend until today. Consistent with great historical fiction of our time, New York Times best-sell author Mike Evans pens a story replete with intrigue, adventure, and brutal persecution. The story begins with John Winters, an American Secret Service agent, who unravels centuries old truths about Christopher Columbus and the real drama that lay behind those famous voyages to the Americas.
My take on this book:
After the death of his wife several years earlier, John Winter's relationship with his daughter Maria became almost non existent. His job as a Secret Service Agent was all he had and now that he is on paid leave after a botched raid he is sort of at loose ends. When his mother dies unexpectedly, she leaves him a note explaining that she has been doing geological research into the family history and believes that they are direct descendants of Christopher Columbus and asks that John continue her research where she left off. His research will have him traveling to Spain searching for hidden truths, and what he finds just might cost him his life!
The Columbus Code is a page turning read that really left me wanting more! I found myself drawn in by the character of John Winter. I could understand the issues that he was grappling with, and the relationship that he shared with his daughter Maria was also understandable. The plot moves along at a fast pace and it was interesting to see how the different story lines came together. I must admit I was most fascinated with the secret society and their plans for taking over world finances, something that seems very timely for today. The author also touches on end time prophecy including the blood moons, which added another intriguing element for me. Fans of fast paced, suspense filled reads that deal with end time prophecy will certainly find this story worth reading.
