Book Description
 

CODEX, THE by Douglas Preston - SIGNED FIRST EDITION TRADE PAPER BOOK

See all titles by Douglas Preston.

A page-turning new thriller by the New York Times bestselling co-author of The Relic and Ice Limit.

"Greetings from the dead," Maxwell Broadbent declared from the videotape he left behind after his mysterious disappearance. A notorious treasure hunter and tomb robber, Maxwell accumulated a priceless collection of rare art, gems, and artifacts before vanishing completely-along with all his riches. At first, robbery is suspected, but the truth proves far stranger: as a final challenge to his three sons, Maxwell has buried himself and his treasures somewhere in the world, hidden away like an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. If his sons wish to claim his inheritance, they must find their father's concealed tomb.

Furthermore, Maxwell's priceless possessions include a codex-an ancient Mayan manuscript that contains all the lost arts of Mayan herbal medicine, secrets which will revolutionize pharmacology. The codex is worth billions, and one pharmaceutical company CEO has sent mercenaries after it with orders to kill anyone in their way, including the beautifully enigmatic woman accompanying one of them. Now the race is on, with more and more people competing for the treasure-and some of them will stop at nothing to succeed.
