Description-
  • Ann Blake, a rare-book expert and conservator, was imprisoned for a drunk-driving accident that she doesn't remember, one that resulted in the death of her husband. But she is freed from prison by CIA undercover agent Tucker Anderson in exchange for her help and expertise on the Library of Gold, a legendary collection of books that have been lost to the world for over a century. Sent to an exhibit on the Library of Gold at the British Museum, Ann sees the one person she never expected to see again: her dead husband, Charles. After Charles first flees, then tries to kill her, Ann finds herself in the midst of several powerful, secret forces who either want her dead or want to use her to find the Library of Gold. The only person unequivocably on her side is Matt Kelly, who is seeking the people responsible for his father's death.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Here's yet another twist on THE DA VINCI CODE. This one focuses on the secret Library of Gold and one of its key volumes, THE BOOK OF SPIES, both of which are connected to international terrorism. The plot focuses on rare-books expert Eva Blake, who pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter in the death of her husband, Charles. But Charles is alive--and is leaving Eva clues that lead to discovery of the book and library. Narrator Kate Reading gives a well-paced performance that conveys the emotions tormenting Eva as she searches for the book, the library, and the ruthless men behind them. Reading never intrudes on the story. Rather, her style complements Eva's intensity, allowing the listener to share in the book's surprising, if somewhat unfulfilling, conclusion. D.J.S.

  • James Patterson "Gayle Lynds is one of the best suspense writers in the world. The Book of Spies is a completely unique work, but for the purpose of inciting all of you to read it, let me say Da Vinci Code meets Bourne Identity–which happens to be completely accurate."
