Total Reading Time: 3.75 hours

Review: This story was a modern day mystery with a classic sensibility. It seamlessly combined Google and super-computing with code-breaking and an ancient secret society complete with underground lair & black robes. I found myself enjoying the intersection of technology and old world knowledge and the ending was surprisingly profound and heart-warming. Overall, an utterly creative jaunt and a new take on one of my favorite topics: the wonderful world of books.
