When asked to un-crate and organise a personal library of rare books, Edward's indignation turns to intrigue as he realises that among the volumes there may be hidden a unique medieval codex, a treasure kept sealed away for many years and for many reasons. Edward's intrigue becomes an obsession that only deepens as friends draw him into a peculiar and addictive computer game, as mystifying parallels between the game's virtual reality and the legend of the codex emerge raise for Codex: 'A compulsively readable novel' - Iain Pears 'A genuine treat, with its sneaky plot and richly textured storytelling. It also moves so fast that readers won't realize how smart it is' - San Francisco Chronicle 'Codex takes its place on the shelf with The Name of the Rose, Possession and A Case of Curiosities, and it's as entertaining as any of them.' - New York Times .
