"An intricately woven adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat. Cryptography and art combine with the suspense running rampant through the novel. It reminds me greatly of The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown in that way. There really is never a dull moment in this one. Enigma Variations is bound to be a favorite among fans of the DaVinci Code series. It offers to take the reader on a thrilling ride they will not want to miss, just like it did for me." -Chika Anene, Independent Book Review
