The Atlantis Code (Thomas Lourds, #1) by Charles Brokaw
He opens the novel discussing a missing ancient relic, whose plot parallels a Vatican storyline that is equally as mysterious and thought brikaw. The main thing I didn’t like about the story was the romantic interests. I was thoroughly entranced by this story as soon as I began reading.
ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. The search for knowledge and truth Atlantis Code was as good if not better than the Lucifer Code. It wasn’t terrible but, it wasn’t all that good either. The one who’s married is killed off because, hey, she can’t bone the proff.

When the Russian scientist turns up dead with the cymbal stolen, and when Lourds himself is attacked and his bell gone as well, all hell breaks loose as he slowly learns these two musical instruments, along with three others, are the key to the archaeological find of all time, the location of Atlantis.
I recommend this to everyone! Loved the ending too, think I chrles my breath for the last 60 pages! Other key players that tag along with Lourds on his hunt for answers are a beautiful Russian police woman who is the sister of the Russian scientist seeking revenge, and a pair of young television journalists seeking the story of a life-time.
The book was praised as being the next Da Vinci Code while I saw vode potential for the story about the myth of Atlantis in the beginning and was willing to look over some things in the beginning by the time I finished the book I felt like I had read a horribly inadequate rip off of The Da Vinci Code. By the end of the novel when the professor learns both the women have left notes asking to have dinner with him, he banters about his “big appetite” being enough for both of them.
However, I can not be sure if the book actually started to get better or I was excited to almost be done. The story was almost exactly like The Davinci Code, an American college professor goes to overseas about an ancient artifact, the Vatican is If it were possible to give this book half a star, I would. Chatles Charles Brokaw’s books are written by a ghost writer, whoever writes them does a splendid job at keeping the story lines weaved in together with nods to other moments in other books.
Two big revelations—that the artifact may be connected to Atlantis and that the legendary lost continent may be linked to a revisionist version of an Old Testament account—will get few readers’ pulses racing, especially since Brokaw relies more on shoot-outs and narrow escapes than plausible archeological details to carry his story along.

Despite the lumbering pace, by-the-numbers descriptions and a surfeit of chase scenes, Brokaw holds readers until the last stone is turned.

A real page turner. Hopefully by the second book the author may have gotten some feedback and he’ll improve his likeability factor.
