This is my review of the book The Dresden Text by Derek Wilson, which I read recently. I know I mentioned internet connection problems previously, and so they have continued. This time BT just cut the land-line completely – it did eventually come back (2 BT engineers sent to repair it) but then we have had a few days of intermittent disconnections. BT are evidently putting in new poles along the road and this does not help. We are getting very used to the red light on the Home Hub indicating no broadband connection. As the issue is with the line up our road and to our house I suppose we would have the same problem which ever supplier we used. But that does not mean it is an issue. Automated emails from BT telling us to restart our hub are not really helpful. How many times does it need to be restarted in a day 2, 5, or every time we want a connection! That does seem crazy..
Getting back to the book – this was nothing to do with modern technology but rather a fragment of medieval manuscript taken from a very old Bible. This is dramatically stolen and the owner of the security firm tasked to look after it decides to find out who had taken the document.
This involves a chase right across Europe. I notice that the book was written in 1994 and I wonder if this gave Dan Brown ideas for his book The Da Vinci Code which was written in 2003, as they do have some similarities. I am sure I am not the first person to notice this.
Anyway an enjoyable book well worth reading – I will try and find other Derek Wilson books to read, as evidently Tim Lacy the star of the story features in these as well.
