ose Rodrigues dos Santos is the author of Codex 632 which is a book I am currently read and will be reviewing shortly. His book has been compared to The Da Vinci Code. Judging from his response in an interview, he doesn’t like being compared to Dan Brown. Why? Well dos Santos puts a lot more research into his books. Brown’s book was based upon hearsay (I’m still trying to understand why people take it literally); where as dos Santos has actually crafted a story around historical debate that has been going upon unawares by we mere non-historians. I’m now planning a trip to Portugal to see the documents. (Kidding). He’s relatively unknown outside of Portugal, but I’m about to change that!! Here’s his bio which I shamelessly copied from his website Jose Rodrigues dos Santos.
