This is the world of ARMAND PTOLEMY, a new action-adventure hero who fights the New World Order.  Facing an enemy armed with the Golden Aleph -- a mystical device that allows its wielder to see holographically into every point in time and space, Ptolemy must use every trick of his Oxford-educated mind and circus-trained body to succeed.

But how do you fight an enemy that knows your every move … even before you do?

When Armand Ptolemy is called to investigate strange tremors plaguing an old wing of the New York public library, he finds himself enmeshed in a series of events that began in 1912. Yet Ptolemy himself is rumored to be from the past -- and the world's Elite lust after the secret of how he seemingly jumped forward over one hundred years in time. Most keenly interested in this secret is Octavio Veerspike, head of the Veerspike banking dynasty.

"... I'd read/listened to Mark Jeffery other series, and this is NOT Max Quick. I wasn't expecting another MQ book. I'm not sure what I expected. But I follow Mark on twitter and he sold me with this pitch, "Indiana Jones meets Dan Brown, with synchronicity machines, iChing difference engines and time travel thrown in there :)." How can you not want to read this book after that pitch?  The characters are engaging. The setting is fantastical and over the top, but not to a degree that makes you groan. It really is a mix of Indiana Jones and Dan Brown. But MUCH better. Much Better."

"This was one of the most fun books I've read in a long time. Ripped from the pages of today's news, conspiracy websites, and internet zeitgeist, Mark Jeffrey has created a new thriller with a mysterious protagonist. Who is Armand Ptolemy? How did he get his abilities? Is he really a time traveller? We get lots of questions, lots of action, and we're left wanting more answers.  Can't wait for the next book."

"There are conspiracy theories and then there is the novel, which can suggest much more with much less. "Armand Ptolemy and the Golden Aleph" spirits away a reader into a narrative where symbology, ancient tradition, technology, and physics perfectly illustrates the human quest for power. No other work of fiction has its finger so firmly planted on the pulse of current events.

The author's background in technology shines through -- occasionally lending a taste of Neal Stephenson to the story. A reader can shelf any allusions to Dan Brown's work; his stiff characters have nothing on the protagonists of this tale, whose individual subplots create a rich context into which the story is nestled with brutal precision.

The only complaint I have with the novel is that it ended. I can't wait for the next installment."
