The Voynich Deception

By Michael Lancashire

Thriller, Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook

When a book dealer comes to notorious London mob boss Gezim Petrela with the key to an untranslated, medieval manuscript and a promise of untold riches, he is hooked. Then the dealer disappears and Petrela tracks down the team he’d chosen to demand that they finish decoding it. And he uses his own brand of persuasion to make sure they comply. Petrela gives Ben Jarvis, a linguistics reader at a small university, two weeks to do what the world’s top cryptologists have failed to do in a hundred years. Or his girlfriend will die… Secret codes, a turf war between rival gangs, a theft from a government building and a shadowy, offstage figure known as the Architect all collide in this gripping thriller that will keep you guessing to the end.

Michael Lancashire's first serious writing was episodes of The A-Team. Sadly they were not picked up by NBC for some reason, probably a combination of the lack of an agent and the fact that he was 7 and they were written in crayon. Since then he has written for pleasure whenever jobs and family life permit. He lives in the English Midlands with his wife, three kids and an ever changing assortment of chickens, mammals and reptiles.
