What if you had the chance to uncover tangible evidence of the divine? How far would you go, what dangers would you brave, in pursuit of the greatest mystery of all?
Four companions of varying beliefs, on a journey to the forgotten corners of Europe, are about to find out.
On a desolate English moor, a team of scientists unearths a two-thousand-year-old wooden box, preserved in silver and inlaid with a map of patterned gemstones. A set of runes inscribed on the box claims the map is a pathway to God.
In an attempt to decipher the map, a wealthy New Orleans collector assembles an unlikely team: a specialist in cultural antiquities who dabbles in the occult; a jaded attorney searching for meaning; a brilliant linguist who loathes organized religion; and a Catholic historian with a reputation for acquiring pieces no one else can or will.
Shackled by secrets and hidden motives, pursued by a sinister religious order, driven by an insatiable desire for answers, the four companions trek across Europe as they search for a connection among the ancient sites revealed by the map. As the hunt for truth takes them deeper into the unknown, their lives and perhaps their souls in peril, they must determine whether the letterbox is part of an elaborate, centuries-old deception–or the answer to mankind’s ultimate questions.
After a long time away from the blog due to personal reasons my favourite author sends me a new book of his, a stand alone and after reading it I feel like getting the blog back up and running again. Time constrains are still here but it is an enjoyable pastime. So here goes.
The Letterbox by Layton Green.
Some unusual characters are united to find the meaning of The Letterbox, they are from different backgrounds but all have something in common, they want to know what it is. They travel to various different locations around the world and the author has done a great job in the descriptions and making the reader believe they are there, with all the mystery ans suspense that goes with it. It is fast paced, well thought out and well written. Looking forward to more by Layton as always.

Religion and philosophy, as well as all things mysterious and supernatural, are a lifelong interest.
