“Wow, it starts slow, letting all the characters to build, but then halfway through it and u just can’t keep it down, amazing, u get as obsessed with cryptex, as Remi or the killer. Amazingly written.”

FBI Special Agent Daniel Walker, 40, known for his ability to hunt killers, his street-smarts, and his disobedience, is singled out from the Behavioral Analysis Unit and assigned to the FBI’s new Antiquities unit. The unit, formed to hunt down priceless relics in the global world of antiquities, has no idea how to enter the mind of a murderer.
Remi Laurent, 34, brilliant history professor at Georgetown, is the world’s leading expert in obscure historic artifacts. Shocked when the FBI asks for her help to find a killer, she finds herself reluctantly partnered with this rude American FBI agent. Special Agent Walker and Remi Laurent are an unlikely duo, with his ability to enter killers’ minds and her unparalleled scholarship, the only thing they have in common, their determination to decode the clues and stop a killer.
An unputdownable crime thriller featuring an unlikely partnership between a jaded FBI agent and a brilliant historian, the REMI LAURENT series is a riveting mystery, grounded in history, and packed with suspense and revelations that will leave you continuously in shock, and flipping pages late into the night.
Books #2-#6 in the series—THE MURDER CODE, THE MALICE CODE, THE VENGEANCE CODE, THE DECEPTION CODE, and THE SEDUCTION CODE—are also available.
I really enjoyed this book. It has good depth and a few twists. Not full of idiosyncrasy’s that you can’t understand.
A very interesting first book of the series. Remi is a history professor and is working with FBI agent to find a killer and crack a secret code. Remi is as obsessed with the need to crack the code as the killer, only problem is he wants her as well.
Riveting read and a different type of mystery
How interesting to get two such different characters gelling in this fashion and an excellent tale about historical artefacts without being boring. Love a rule breaker which helps the cause and definitely going to buy book two now as really enjoyed this.
