Written by Douglas Preston. Narrated by Scott Sowers. Greetings from the dead," declares Maxwell Broadbent on the videotape he left behind after his mysterious disappearance. A notorious treasure hunter and tomb robber, Broadbent accumulated over a half a billion dollars' worth of priceless art, gems, and artifacts before vanishing-along with his entire collection-from his mansion in New Mexico. With half a billion dollars at stake, as well as an ancient Mayan codex that may hold a cure for cancer and other deadly diseases, others soon join the hunt-and some of them will stop at nothing to claim the grave goods. The bestselling coauthor of such page-turning thrillers as Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities, Douglas Preston now spins an unforgettable tale of greed, adventure, and betrayal in The Codex.

The book has a surprise ending. The Codex is a treasure - literally and figuratively - three + brothers on a wild ride to find their father's inheritance in the Honduras. It spawned an excellent sequel, Tyrannosaur Canyon, but Codex is amazing - non-stop action as the Broadbents find what treasure really is -. One of the most wonderful 'characters' is Hairy Bugger - he features prominently in the plot and readers will really loved Bugger's part. Mr. Preston, keep 'em coming - Fans of good reads - this ranks high up the list.

Douglas Preston doesn't think much of his audience (or maybe the trash compactor scene from Star Wars overly impressed him) - how else to explain a character's emergence from a sealed crypt, wh An excellent read for those days when you have just a minute or two here or there - the chapters are that short.
I really liked the characters, the Broadbent family. The reader was really good with the voices. The only thing that would have made it better was to get the unabridged version. I am sure there was a lot more to the story in the unabridged book. Unfortunately, I listened to The Codex AFTER reading/listening to Preston's Tyrannosaur Canyon, a terrific book that I recommend highly. Codex suffers greatly in comparison to Tyrannosaur -altho' I'd say Codex.

Preston, Douglas J. The codex, Douglas Preston. p. cm. A Tom Doherty Associates book. Niccolo Capponi offered some of his usual brilliant ideas regarding several tricky scenes in the book. Several books were useful to me while writing The Codex, in particular Redmond O’Hanlons In Trouble Again and Sastun: My Apprenticeship with a Maya Healer by Rosita Arvigo-an excellent book that I would recommend to anyone interested in the subject of Mayan medicine. My daughter Selene read the manuscript several times and offered top-notch criticism, for which I am immensely grateful.
