Preston, Douglas J. The codex, Douglas Preston. p. cm. A Tom Doherty Associates 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.

About book: I'm a huge fan of the series of books co-authored by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. I also enjoyed Child's first solo novel, but Preston's The Codex left me wondering if Child is the heart of their writing duo (although Child's Utopia certainly had some plot holes). In The Codex, Maxwell Broadbent is a multi-millionaire who is dying of cancer. Instead of simply leaving his fortune to his three sons, who were never able to live up to his unreasonably high expectations, he decides to seal himself away in a tomb with all his belongings.

The book was excellent. Anything Douglas Preston writes is excellent. The book has a surprise ending. I loved the book but really need to know what happens to the professor!
