Originally titled THE DA VINCI BOMB by the author but renamed by the publishers to advantage the book's highly charged sexual nature, THE SIXTY-NINERS details the machinations of the U.S. and Russians, at the height of the Cold War, upon discovery of a heretofore unknown notebook by Leonardo da Vinci. |
Where da Vinci's better known surviving works surprised with their coded drawings and plans for such before-their-time military armament as helicopters and submarines, this one shocks with presenting a seemingly coded blueprint for an anti-matter bomb.
U.S. forces, including operative Peter Bigg, face off, against adversaries out to be the first to decipher the text, track down the whereabouts of a key missing element that the author has cleverly concealed elsewhere, to achieve the military advantage for world domination.
