The Voynich Manuscript is an actual book written in a code or language no one understands. Brad Kelln has taken this unsoved mystery and built a religious thriller around it a la The DaVinci Code. Unfortunately, Kelln is no Dan Brown, and that's doubly bad given my low opinion of Mr. Brown.In Tongues of the Dead is a light-weight thriller useful for killing a couple of hours. It's got enough holes in it to qualify as Swiss cheese, and the characters are as cookie-cutter as they come. If you're stuck in an airport, this one might bail you out, but otherwise I'd pass it by if I were you.
