Edward Wozny, young investment banker, is sent to help one of his firm's most important clients. His task is to search their library for a medieval codex, a book kept sealed away many reasons. Edward meets Margaret Napier,an academic, who he enlists to help him to solve the mystery of the codex-to understand its significance to his clients, and to decipher the seeming parallels between the legend of the codex and an obsessive role-playing computer game, MOMBUS, that has absorbed Edward's time and mind. I found the plot intriguing and the history of the book collection fascinating. Still unsure of the ending--in someways it was a surprise, and at the same time somewhat disappointing. Still I would give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

Very enjoyable book I picked up kind of by accident just because I wanted a paperback. Even though 10 yrs old it reads very contemporary considering there’s a lot about technology. It’s fun to watch Edward, who is used to taking risks with other people’s money but not with his own life, have an Adventure. Crazy ending I did not see coming.
