Before I got my Kindle I bought Glen Cooper's The Tenth Chamber. Have just got round to starting it and it's already gripping me. The prologue starts in 1899 in the Perigord region of France. Page 6 is the start of chapter 1 - if I'm already hooked, I have great expectations of this book. Will let you know if it lives up to my expectations. Has anyone else read it?
not to everyone's tastes maybe but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The blurb on the back says:"I am certain to meet a horrible and painful death. I will die for the knowledge I possess. There has been blood, and there will be more...AD1307: In the ancient Abbey of Ruac, a mysterious brotherhood risk their lives to guard a secret that could change the world forever.AD2010: Archaeologists Luc Simard and Sara Mallory stumble across a lost medieal manuscript. Within it's pages lies a riddle of clues pointing to teh location of a long-hidden chamber - and a devasting truth.Luc and Sara begin to unlock the secrets buried within the cavern, but find themselves at the very heart of an extraordinary conspiracy which a powerful sect have protected for centuries.Now the secret of the tenth chamber is about to be revealed..."
Sounds like my kind of book Liz - I might just have to treat myself.
Well, I think it was. I managed to get it on a buy one get one free in Tesco. The other I bought with it was disappointing and I didn't finish it (that one was The Left Hand of God)it's rare I don't finish a book I've started but got totally fed up of that one which probably put me off starting The Tenth Chamber. I'm very glad I did start it though, I really enjoyed it.
Thanks for the recommendation Liz - thoroughly enjoyed it = but it wasn't until I'd bought it that I realised I had his previous 2 books on my bookshelf - Library of the Dead & Book of Souls. Both really good reads.
to my list then Christine. Thank you maam ;o)
Just started it, Liz. I looked it up because of your recommendation, then decided,like Christine of Lancashire, to first read the other 2 of the trilogy.
Love finding them, Glen Cooper was a case in point as was Seb Kirby and obviously I'm not alone in liking these authors. Love knowing that others' share my reading tastes at least some of the time. Current kindle read (re-read really) is Little Women and I'm enjoying it just as much again as I did all those years ago.

".................There are several books with the title "The Left-hand of God" (and a film with Humphrey Bogart as a priest but don't go there). Which was yours?
Left Hand of God - it's by Paul Hoffman and apparently it's part of a trilogy. I just couldn't get away with it although it sounded promising.
