The Genghis Code by Richard and Lucy Lipari is a compelling novel with shades of mystery, sleuthing, history, and adventure. A secret society is poised to dominate the world and the key to unraveling the mystery of this group is in treasures stolen during the Iraq War. Jake Preston, a retired New York firefighter and CID Officer, teams up with Professor Valentina to unravel the mystery. Follow these characters on a journey that takes them across countries as they follow the clues from New York City to Minsk, Moscow, Warsaw, Beijing, and Ulaanbaator. They encounter more than they had expected in this pulsating quest and threats to their lives that no one saw coming.
This is a wonderful story and what immediately caught my attention is the authors’ ability to write historical events with detail, capturing the conflict in the Middle East with wonderful descriptions and imagery. The characters are multidimensional and well-crafted. Professor Valentina is a stunning woman and a well-explored character. I enjoyed how Richard and Lucy Lipari use her to create suspense in the narrative, creating suspicion in the minds of readers as they follow her. Dr. Song, a nuclear scientist from Wuhan, China, is another interesting character and I loved the way his role in the story is developed. The descriptions are terrific, the writing is gorgeous, and the plot is as twisty as can be. Overall, The Genghis Code is a mesmerizing, fast-paced, and action-packed thriller that will entice fans of mystery and adventure.
