Thoughts:
I enjoyed The Tenth Chamber by Glenn Cooper, this is an engaging novel, interesting plots and sub-plots and even somewhat plausible, meaning that I didn’t have to suspend my beliefs to the extreme.  I really enjoyed the characters and their interactions, they are well drawn and engaging.

Mr. Cooper jumps in his timeline several times, telling parallel stories from 30,000 BP, to the present with sub-plots taking place in the late nineteenth century, the early fourteenth century and during World War II. Even though this might be tricky, I felt the author handled the jump between time and plot fairly well, as the stories flow into one another and help move the overall story forward.

The book also has some historical tidbits in it, which makes the impossible story seems plausible and, to me, more enjoyable. The pace of the novel is excellent and the buildup is effective up to the explosive end.

Synopsis:
A 14th Century book is found hidden in a wall in a monastery, inside it there is a map which points to a cave filled with outstanding paintings on its walls. The book is sent to Paris for restoration where Hugo Pineau, a literary historian, enlists the help of Luc Simard, an archaeologist to find the cave.

But the cave holds many secrets, when an international team is assembled to explore the cave, it becomes apparent that someone doesn’t want the work to get done. As the death toll rises, the survivors race against time and villains to save the cave in all its glory and uncover the secrets it holds.
