August Adams has failed his family before. He's sacrificed relationships in pursuit of adventure, fame, and money. Now the very lives of those he loves depend on his ability to decipher a centuries-old puzzle encrypted in the colorful hand-painted illuminations that adorn three rare Gutenberg Bibles. It's a secret that could yield unimaginable wealth, undermine two major religions, and change the course of Western civilization. Two ruthless, ancient organizations are willing to do anything to get their hands on it. And August has the span of one transatlantic flight to figure it out. If he fails, those he holds most dear will die. If he succeeds, he'll destroy a national treasure. The clock ticks, the suspense mounts, and the body count rises as August pits his knowledge and his love for his family against the clock, secret societies, and even Johannes Gutenberg himself.

Quotes & Awards

  • . . . this rare breed of suspense thriller combines mysterious hidden clues, secret societies, buried treasure, double agents, and the Knights Templar . . . if you turned National Treasure into international treasure, traded Da Vinci codes for Gutenberg Bibles, married it to Indiana Jones, and added the pacing of 24 you’d be in the neighborhood of Illuminated . . . on a scale of one to 10, this one goes to 11.

    " Not my normal book, best described as a spin off of the DaVinci Code, but based on true facts. Incredibly interesting and thought provoking, couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessie | 2/6/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan | 1/14/2014

    " Though similar in style to The Da Vinci Code, Illuminated keeps you enthralled with all the plot twits and family dynamics. A very entertaining read that will keep the pages turning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ta N. | 1/12/2014

    " Another Davinci Code, but substituted with mysterious Johannes Gutenburg and his illuminations in the bibles he made and handed among the top people of the Order of the Dragon. Fiction, and not as well plotted as The Davinci Code, but I learned a lot about history, the Orphans, and Gutenburg, so it's worth reading. "
