The Cairo Code By Glenn Meade

I received this book from Howard Books Blogger Program for no charge in exchange for my honest review. The opinions expressed here are my own.


Book Description: 

The international bestseller takes you on a fast-paced, nail-biting thrill ride from the Great Pyramids in Cairo, to behind the Nazi lines in Berlin, to the very seat of democracy as our hero tries to unravel a plot that could kill FDR and Winston Churchill.

To save the Western Allies, he must kill the woman he loves…

November 1943: Adolf Hitler sanctioned his most audacious mission ever—to kill US President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill while they visit Cairo for a secret conference to plan the Allied invasion of Europe, an invasion which threatens imminent defeat for Germany.

Only one man is capable of leading the defiant Nazi mission—Major Johann Halder, one of the Abwehr’s most brilliant and daring agents. He is a man with a tortured soul and a talent for the impossible. Accompanied by an expert undercover team and Rachael Stern, the young and beautiful Egyptologist, Halder must race against time across a hostile desert to reach Cairo and successfully complete the assignment, or else forfeit his life and the life of his son.

When US military intelligence hears about the plan, they assign Lieutenant-Colonel Harry Weaver, one of their best officers, to hunt down and eliminate Halder and his team. But for Weaver, as well as for Halder and Stern, there’s more than the balance of war and the lives of the Allied leaders at stake—a pact of love and friendship will be tested in the frantic, high-stakes chase to the death.

Based on a real attempt to kill the President, The Cairo Code is a breathless, suspenseful thriller—a heart-wrenching tale of friendship, love, and treachery set against the exotic and intriguing backdrop of wartime Egypt.

My Thoughts:

The Cairo Code is the latest release of Glenn Meade and it is FANTASTIC. The Cairo Code had been previously titled The Sands of Sakkara. As a huge fan of Glenn Meade's books I was so excited to have the opportunity to read it. This book is a Christian Historical Fiction which my readers know is one of my favorite genres. Glenn Meade writes with authority about The world in the 1930's and 1940's, military intelligence  for the United States, Egypt, England, and Germany, archeology, The Nazi Party, the concentration camps, and the attempt on the president's life. As a huge fan of Historical Fiction I have found myself drawn this part in history and I find myself learning so much every time I read one of these books. I found myself drawn into this book from the start and guessing until the end how things would work out. The characters in this book are awesome. They are very complex characters that aren't always what they seem. My favorite characters would have to be Rachel Stern, Major Johann Halder, and Lt Colonel Harry Weaver. They are very complicated characters in very interesting and hard situation in this book. The three of them are a love triangle and all three of them once friends on the same side, end up all on different sides of the war. Their love for one another definitely puts them all in very difficult situations and the interactions are fantastic. I love Glenn Meade's style of writing and I really felt like I was there on this adventure with our characters.  The Cairo Code is a Christian Historical Thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction with high action, you will NOT be disappointed. I look forward to reading more of Glenn Meade's books. I give this book 5 STARS.
