Review

Praise for The Istanbul Puzzle:

'A brisk plot…which draws the reader into a conspiratorial rapport.' Telegraph

'This stylish conspiracy thriller is a Turkish delight…combines plenty of stirring action with fascinating historical detail’ Irish Independent

Laurence was born in Dublin. He studied business, then IT at Oxford University. After going to England he paid for his own courses and began rising at 4AM so he could study and work at the same time. One early job was as a kitchen porter near the Bank of England cleaning the plates of the well connected. He stayed in squats in London and struggled for years. Laurence was first published by a school newspaper when he was ten, for a short story about aliens getting lost. Thirty-five years later, he attended a authonomy workshop and not long after was offered a publishing contract for three books.The Jerusalem Puzzle is his second novel.

The Jerusalem Puzzle creates another intense look at an ancient city. This second book in Laurence O'Bryan's mystery/thriller series offers believable historical locations, cultural references, and puzzling clues as to the location, and drive of a mad man; the reader is able to look into this mystery's misery through the plight of the victims. There's also the purpose of war for financial gain--another failed repeat of history. I recommend reading this story along with O'Bryan's first novel, The Istanbul Puzzle.

Format: Paperback
This exquisite novel with its dazzling cover is something to treasure, for it contains such intricate detail as to take your breath away. The electrifying tension radiates off the pages as this thrilling, mesmerizing tale is as gripping as Dan Brown's `The Da Vinci Code' if not more so. I was swept into a mysterious world shrouded in conspiracy theories, deep-rooted history and ancient prophecies. The fast-paced, layered plot is something to loose yourself within as you unravel the truth bit-by-bit, reveling in the delights of the perilous backdrop that is so atmospheric. I was taken on the most thrilling journey to the exotic, piquant and vibrant Jerusalem where an ancient evil lies waiting hidden beneath a troubled, divergent civilization.

There is a single manuscript nearly all but forgotten, which contains the key to the greatest, shocking historical secret of all-time...

Sean Ryan and his girlfriend Isabel Sharp are exploring the ancient, mysterious city of Jerusalem when they find themselves drawn into a dangerous game with deadly consequences. Meanwhile in the same city Doctor Susan Hunter was translating an ancient manuscript, until it suddenly disappears without a trace. Behind Lady Tunshuq's Palace in the Muslim quarter of Jerusalem the archeologist Max Kaiser is found dead, with murder on the cards now no one is safe...

The sequel to `the Istanbul puzzle' (shortlisted for the Irish crime novel of the year 2012) continues the story from where it left off, by including the square and arrow symbol (that Sean and Isabel discovered within the Museum of Antiquities), in central Cairo near Tahrir square.

The book is a masterclass in how to write a thriller... each chapter end on a hook as the excitement mounts. At times it reminded me of a Hitchcock film, particularly in the harrowing captivity scenes.

THE JERUSALEM PUZZLE
By
Laurence O'Bryan

This book is a continuation of the Istanbul Puzzle which I absolutely loved and definitely could not put down. The transition from The Istanbul Puzzle is seamless, in fact, The Jeruslem Puzzle is very much a stand slone book. Mr. O'Bryan's main character, Sean Ryan, remains a well drafted hero and his girlfriend, Isabel Sharp, is a superbly defined counterpart. I love the author's intense descriptions of all the Holy Places. Unlike Istanbul, I have visited Jerusalem, and I know the atmosphere in this city is unlike any other in the world. Mr. O'Bryan has captured the very essence of the Holy City, where the tangled web of Religious Beliefs literally thickens the air. When Max Kaiser, archeologist, and a colleague of Ryan's, is found murdered; then Dr. Susan Hunter, who was translating an ancient Manuscript disappears, Sean goes on the hunt. This long lost Manuscript could change the world as we know it, and he is determined to uncover its mysteries. If you love the rip-roaring thrill of Indiana Jones, and the Scientific Exploration of ancient cultures, you will really appreciate this book. Dan Brown, of Da Vinci Code fame, had better watch out; he has some serious competition from this brilliant Irish author, Laurence O'Bryan, whose writing is impeccable. As you read, you find yourself absorbing complicated facts and theories, almost by osmosis, as if you yourself were a seasoned scientist. This is a gift belonging to few writers and I salute you Mr. O'Bryan. I have already ordered my copy of The Manhattan Puzzle, due in October, and I cannot wait for it to arrive. If you have not read either The Istanbul Puzzle or The Jerusalem Puzzle you have some happy hours ahead of you. Both of these books are fantastic and a must read!!

A really good blend of history, religion, action, adventure and suspense. Character development is done well, even the secondary characters are given more depth. Very descriptive writing that gives the reader good visuals of the settings. Looking froward to the next piece of the puzzle.

While I very much enjoyed the Istanbul Puzzle, this book blew me away. I could easily see a movie or series made from this series. This book is a nail biter. It will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

After thoroughly enjoying O'Bryan's excellent Istanbul Puzzle, i got this as soon as it was available in the US. It certainly didn't let me down. He continues the development of the main characters expertly, and intertwines the "bigger story" with a very visual description of the locations in the book, this time mainly Jerusalem. I can't wait until the next chapter of the series to come out, so if you haven't already, read the Istanbul Puzzle then this one, so you too can enjoy a fine series of books.
