The Library of Gold by @gaylelynds

Ivan the Terrible's Library of Gold was a legendary archive of secret knowledge. It vanished from history centuries ago... Now one of its fabled volumes has come to light.


The CIA has linked the long-lost book, a shadowy cabal, and a terrifying new threat to global security: the library must be found. But with one agent already murdered for knowing too much, who will take up the hunt?


Rare books expert Eva Blake is determined to clear her name after a spell behind bars. Judd Ryder is a one-time spy with a troubled past. Both have nothing to lose, except their lives. Racing from London to Rome, Istanbul to Athens, these desperate treasure hunters must find the library - before its keepers find them.


[A library could be a dangerous place]

I'd never heard of the author before so had no idea what to expect. I really enjoyed this book. It reminds me a lot of Dan Brown's books (of which I've read one but I've seen a few movie adaptations). I thought there would be more myth in this book around the secret library, how it came about, its purpose etc. This aspect wasn't as well developed as it could have been which let the book down a little. Still, this was a solid read; secret objects, legends, secret conspiracies and murder. What's not to enjoy?
