Záhadně zašifrovaný rukopis, násilná vražda na univerzitě, tajemství prince v labyrintu lží, šílenství a talentu. Naprosto zasvěcené a daleko méně upovídané než Šifra mistra Leonarda The New York Times. Text v angličtině. Princeton. Good Friday, 1999. On the eve of graduation, two students are a hairsbreadth from solving the mysteries of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili. Famous for its hypnotic power over those who study it, the five-hundred-year-old Hypnerotomachia may finally reveal its secrets -- to Tom Sullivan, whose father was obsessed with the book, and Paul Harris, whose future depends on it. As the deadline looms, research has stalled -- until an ancient diary surfaces. What Tom and Paul discover inside shocks even them: proof that the location of a hidden crypt has been ciphered within the pages of the obscure Renaissance text. Armed with this final clue, the two friends delve into the bizarre world of the Hypnerotomachia -- a world of forgotten erudition, strange sexual appetites, and terrible violence. But just as they begin to realize the magnitude of their discovery, Princeton`s snowy campus is rocked: a longtime student of the book is murdered, shot dead in the hushed halls of the history department. A tale of timeless intrigue, dazzling scholarship, and great imaginative power, The Rule of Four is the story of a young man divided between the future`s promise and the past`s allure, guided only by friendship and love. USA Today - Edward Nawotka: The Rule of Four is more intellectually satisfying than emotionally titillating. It`s perfect beach reading for Princetonians, would-be Renaissance scholars and all who are looking to absorb some of the authors` awesome erudition.
