I'm always on the hunt for new authors. I love a book that have science, religion, conspiracy, especially if the story line leads me to do some research of my own. This author did the job and did it well. I highly encourage you to sit, relax and enjoy the treasure hunt. really fascinating!

This contemporary thriller follows in the footsteps of "The DaVinci Code" but in this case the mystery and intrigue surround the works of Isaac Newton, particularly those that go beyond the scientific prowess with which most of us are most familiar. His interests also included alchemy, religion,...

I received this book through the Goodreads Giveaways and will not repeat the summary of the book which can be found on the back cover. This is a really well crafted novel with well developed characters, interesting historical facts to ground the story and plenty of action to keep the readers engag...

It made...

The ‘Da Vinci code’ genre is now familiar territory, but Duncan Simpson turns the genre upside down. The plot and characters in this book are engrossing and totally o...

I found this novel not to be the amazing 5-star thriller that many others did. It was terribly slow and was annoyingly broken up by sections of multiple pages (in a row!) printed in italics. These were sections purported to be the writings of Isaac Newton and are so aggravating because the story...

Loved it. For a hidden knowledge geek like me, the revelations in Newton's journal was a treat. First time I've read of the rod connected to a prophecy, and so I'm researching the topic now. Very interesting. The book is a supernatural thriller. There are characters that are not quite human. Vinc...
