The Aleppo Code
by Terry Brennan
Having chased the secret of the Cipher through a maze of treachery, death, and destruction, Tom Bohannon's band of explorers seems to be at a dead end. But the discovery of a tenth-century scriptural text holding the final key to the ancient code hurls them right back into the fray.
Hunted by the relentless assassins of the Prophet's Guard, Bohannon's intrepid squad struggles to stay one step ahead of their enemies. Amidst the chaos and conspiracy engulfing the Middle East, they doggedly comb the ruins of ancient Babylon in pursuit of this crucial element of end-times prophecy. Bohannon and his team risk everything in a desperate attempt to save the world from destruction.

My Thoughts: Of course I'm always up for a good mystery, especially and action packed one. The Aleppo Code has a great setting, in the Middle East, and plays to it well. I love the suspense throughout the book and it makes reading it go quickly, almost too quickly, before you're at the end. If you like The Babylon Contingency then this is a book to read.
