I thought this was the first of the series but sadly, no, and I'll be backtracking to find the previous adventure. I why are they trying to kill us thriller along the lines of the Da Vince Code.

So far it is a little slow. There are far too many scene shifts and multiple locations. Has taken a while to get things straight and organized in my head. The action is just starting to heat up, and I am about 120 pages into it.

I actually stopped reading this book as I lost interest. Got it off the discount rack from K-Mart. It's a spin off from The Divinci Code genre but the story lacks drama.

The Julian Secret by Gregg Loomis was another purchase made on a gift card I received for Christmas. I went nuts on the historical fiction category and this was one of many in the genre I purchased. If you have read a few of my reviews you know that it is probably my favorite casual read subject. While I thought the book was entertaining, it did not really stand out from the myriad of books that are of similar effort.

Apparently our protagonist, Lang Reilly, is an ongoing character in the works o

A book, which I thought will read in my free time, here at the Platform. I have been always addition to trillers and fictions. This is a thriller, about Lang Reilly who is going after a killer of his friends and cousin. He had a belief that it has something to do with some information he was exposed about the basic foundation of Catholic church.

As I said for "The Pegasus Secret", I'm sure I read these first two in this series at the same time? I think I may have read or started "Gates of Hades". I am on my iPad and do't have access to my books data base right now. I will have to check and update this with som positives.

Lang Reilly is on another dangerous adventure. This time Lang is joined by an "ex"-girlfriend, Gurt. The Julian Secret blends events of the Nazis in WWII and the catacombs under the Vatican. Searching for answers is often extremely dangerous.

Great espionage.

A better written book than the first

Just one spoiler: if you take your Christianity straight and any other theory upsets you, choose another book. That said, the author is learning his craft, more tightly written, better edited. I enjoyed this book.

What I like about these type of books is that I can grab a map or hit up google Earth and follow along as the action happens. In this adventure, Land and Gurt are off to find out who wants to kill him (this time). A decent book to have on the reader or in your pocket when you've got some time to kill.

Watch out Dan Brown

The Julian Secret grabs you from the first page and keeps you turning pages as fast as you can. A secret involving Nazi's and the Vatican is intriguing, suspenseful and will not disappoint even the most discerning reader. Don't pass this Gregg Loomis book up.

First book I read by Gregg Loomis, although it's actually the 2nd book in this series. Quite nice. Reminds me of Dan Brown, but less engineered. I ordered part 1 of this series.

Another fun summer read; I'm on a roll. Short chapters. Great suspense and intrigue. I learned a little about history. I have not read the first book in the series, so I have it now and it's one of the next books on my shelf: The Pegasus Secret.
