The opening sequence of this book begins with the tragic death of an old man and the clearance of his flat under slightly suspicious circumstances, revolving around a particular book that was in the man's possession. This seemly innocent item quickly becomes the centre of a web of intrigue, myth and death as two groups of men seek to obtain this book and the secrets it holds, for reasons that gradually become clear as the story progresses.
Young has created a set of characters that will resonate with everyone, no matter who you are. There is the loveable rogue in Joe, a mis-directed young man, there are the classic good and bad guys and of the course the unexpected helpers that arrive at just the right time. And there is the hint of a great power/treasure/knowledge that is desired by all. Even though this is only a short read, it is absolutely packed with action, fear, joy, relief, faith, terror and a few angels and demons just for good measure. I don't want to say too much but you really must give this a go.
