Salem’s Cipher | Thursday Reads

“Salem’s Cipher” by Jess Lourey

(pic from Amazon.com)

I recently finished reading Salem’s Cipher and it was SOOOO good. And I’m not just saying that because Jess Lourey is one of my favorite authors and everything Jess writes is pretty much gold to me. This one took me awhile to finish, I started in December and just finished last week. Now, that isn’t to say that this book was hard to read or hard to get into, that is simply not the case, I just don’t have as much free time to read as I had couple years back, and I wanted to take my time with this one.

This book is such a thrilling game of cat and mouse full of history (think Da Vinci Code or National Treasure) and even some self-discovery and overcoming your fears.

The blurb:

A troubled codebreaker faces an epic plot reaching back through centuries of America’s secret history

Salem Wiley is a genius cryptanalyst, courted by the world’s top security agencies ever since making a breakthrough discovery in her field of quantum computing. She’s also an agoraphobe, shackled to a narrow routine by her fear of public places. When her mother’s disappearance is linked to a plot to assassinate the country’s first viable female presidential candidate, Salem finds herself both target and detective in a modern-day witch hunt. Drawn into a labyrinth of messages encrypted by Emily Dickinson and centuries-old codes tucked inside the Beale Cipher, Salem begins to uncover the truth: an ancient and ruthless group is hell-bent on ruling the world, and only a select group of women stands in its way.

I HIGHLY recommend Salem’s Cipher to anyone who likes mysteries, action-packed thrillers, or just books, period!
