The Delphi Agenda is an excellent historical mystery with some super twists and turns Hopefully the principal characters will be further developed in the sequel I am about to begin reading. Religion vs Science in FictionWhile The Delphi Agenda does raise the issue of religious opposition to science, the players in this novel are cliched and predictable It s a flat treatment of why the conflict and the inquisition occurred and in some circles continues today I failed to see how the novel contributed to a substantive discussion of belief, faith and the continuing search for knowledge.

esteemed Paris historian Dr Raimond Foix, her friend and mentor in the study of ancient documents Horrified, Lisa finds clues at the crime scene left behind for her by her mentor clues to a secret kept hidden for centuries These clues make her a prime suspect in the murder investigation, and also put her directly in the cross hairs of a deadly commando group that proves to be none other than a contemporary offshoot of the InquisitionThey want an ancient document that reveals a secret so explosive it could change the world a document they ve been tracking for centuries Led by a sadistic priest and a vicious but very accomplished nun with excellent military cred, their mission is to destroy the document no matter what the cost in bloodDesperate to clear her name and to stay alive, with the help of a handsome yet mysterious banker, Lisa must solve the clues and uncover the millennia old secret before her adversaries can find and destroy it Since she was a child Lisa had suffered from uncontrollable fugue states Now she discovers just in time that what she always thought was a liability may in fact be an almost paranormal ability to see things in ways others cannot The trail leads everywhere from ancient cemeteries and tombs throughout France to Istanbul and Greece, as Lisa and Steve desperately stay one step ahead of their enemies, solving the clues to a dangerous treasure hunt their lives now depend upon Some reviewers have compared The Delphi Agenda to Dan Brown s Robert Langdon novels, but there are significant differences One, compared to Delphi, Brown s Da

Langdon novels, but there are significant differences One, compared to Delphi, Brown s Da Vinci Code Inferno could be characterized as mere outlines of a novel Swigart explores manynuances of the centuries old conflict between the Catholic church and its detractors Unfortunately for people who lived in France and Spain in the 12th century and beyond, the Vatican chose to crush dissent by murder, which history refers to as the Medieval Inquisition It was just one of many This lack of adherence to Catholic doctrine was called heresy Herein lies the core of Swigart s The Delphi Agenda, moved forward to the present day A few devouts still seek to murder the dissenters, who really have no particular quarrel with the Catholic church but simply wish to pursue their own intellectual and spiritual interests, symbolically represented by the ancient Greek Oracle at Delphi These so called devouts hope to destroy the one remaining piece of evidence that remains, the Founding Document The dissenters, who pursue it as well, do so without rancor but only to preserve this important papyrus record that dates back several millennia Swigart digs deep into these archaeological, papyrological, cracks and crevices, developing a deeper interest in the subject than a simple clash of good guys and bad guys The novel, being fiction of course, satisfyingly reads as if it has been assiduously researched by the author By comparison, this type of detail in a Dan Brown novel is like trying to take in the scenery while riding the SNCF bullet train I would compare Swigart s novelto Umberto Eco s The Name of the Rose or Perez Reverte s The Club Dumas Swigart s descriptions were vivid I could see and feel the scenes on the rues of Paris I felt I grew to know Lisa Emmer and the other characters, and developed feelings positive, negative and sympathetic for all of them, to the point that I want to read the second Lisa novel in the series, Tablet of Destiny And I will, even though these books, IMO, ought to be read as printed books with hardcovers rather than e books The story Lisa finds herself in France chasing legend and folklore while discovering who she is and what she want With the help of Ted, Marianne, and Steve she is able to bring down the mythical order and reign as pytha for the Delphi Agenda You learn of Greek history and navigate through France while
