Death from Above

Rate this book
Tourists have stolen the sacred codex of the Mayan sky god Q'uq'umatz. Now airliners are falling out of the sky and it's up to NTSB investigator Jennifer Lynch to figure out why. When the stolen codex keeps showing up at crash sites, Lynch teams with Mayan expert Max Gutierrez and oddball Homeland Security agent Lizard Wong to try to solve the crashes. With both terrorists and the FBI hunting for them, can they figure out how to return the codex and stop the crashes before hundreds more die?

An interesting tale

An ancient Mayan sky god rips wings off airlines when passengers read the curse in his codex. Exciting and bizarre climax!

This book is really enjoyable and definitely worth a read - a great weekend or holiday read where you can do it in a single sitting - but probably not one for on a plane!

Death from Above is Mark Polino's first full length fiction publication and I am sure it won't be his last. By day Mark is a CPA and very well known amongst consultants for Dynamics GP as an expert. He has published a number of books in this field and is an avid blogger and contributor at conferences. He is incredibly intelligent and has a witty sense of humour. The intelligence and humour are definitely evident in the writing of this book. This book helps banish the myth that accountants are boring!

The book draws you in immediately – within the first two chapters you are at the point of not wanting to put it down and to find out what happens next.

The characters are interesting, fun and well developed. The storyline is fast with new twists and turns at every corner.

It is difficult to highlight anything in the story without spoiling, so I will simply say that if you want to know how an ancient Mayan codex and planes falling from the sky are connected, you will need to read this book!

This book is interesting from the start and just gets better and better. It's fast past and becomes a fast read. I loved it!

Caution, do not read it while you are flying! I cannot wait for the next(?) Lizard Wong Novel!
