Jim Hougan's book, "The Magdalene Cipher" was a book I picked up at a local library sell. I am very glad I did. The book was entertaining and kept you wondering. This book kind of reminded me of Dan Brown's "The Davinci Code" (which I loved) only not quite as good or controversial.
Down on his luck Jack Dunphy happens to stumble into a secret society that is so old the CIA is a cover for it.
Jack is a regular CIA agent. I liked that his character was more normal and not the kick butt over dramatized action guy.
The book starts off immediately by grabbing your attention. I was surprised this book was as good as it was. I definitely recommend this book to any mystery reader!
