Reviews

"A masterful account of a major religious document. . . . Friedman delivers an atmospheric, tense story." --"Publishers Weekly" [starred review]--Jonathan Safran Foer "Publishers Weekly "
"A superb work of investigative journalism that reads like a detective thriller." --"The Wall Street Journal"
"Friedman shines as a magnificent and thoughtful storyteller. . . . "The Aleppo Codex" might be an unintentional thriller but it is a great one nonetheless." --"Jewish Book World"

"Brilliantly read by Simon Vance. His voice lends the whole story an air of gravitas and when combined with Friedman's descriptions created the perfect combination to make a book about a very old book come to life and become a book about betrayal, danger, intrigue, greed, justice, cover-ups and the survival of a nation."
