Ian Caldwell
The Rule of Four
384 pages
Excellent sort-of thriller about two college students who are both intrigued by an ancient mysterious book, the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili. One because he is doing a thesis about the book and is fascinated by it, the other because he dislikes the effect the book had on his father, who spend his whole life trying to work out the hidden meaning behind the obscure Renaissance book.

Together they manage to get closer and closer to cracking the secret.. But then people start to die around them, and all the evidence points to them...

Excellent story with a fascinating subject. Considering the time it took to write it it must be a labour of love. The attention for detail is examplary, and the way the various secrets in the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili are uncovered is ingenious. It does feel a but like the whole murder plot is a bit of an add-on to make the whose story more of a popular read however, but it's well done atleast. Recommended!
