"[A] quirky and engaging debut thriller...[T]he novel teems with historical, scientific, and literary surprises: Miller slips in fun facts about ciphers from ancient Rome to the Civil War and also connects the Tree of Knowledge system with the biblical tree of knowledge...good-natured twists come again and again. With offbeat characters, brain teasers, and imaginative action, readers will be eager to see what trouble [these characters] get into next."


"The Tree of Knowledge is a dynamite read... reminiscent of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code but smarter, sharper and vertiginously twisted. A thrill ride with no seatbelt but what an incredible view."

-Junot Díaz, New York Times bestselling author and winner of the Pulitzer Prize

"Filled with fascinating characters, breathtaking action, political intrigue, interesting riddles, and loads of information about cryptology, this novel grabs one's interest from page one. Miller is a gifted writer who manages to strike a good pace with this mesmerizing thriller. He includes just the right amount of action and backstory... The story continues to keep the reader on edge from beginning to end. Even the minor characters are strong enough to grab the reader's imagination. With its numerous plot twists, nothing in this work is predictable. Descriptions of code and cryptology are written in such a way as to keep even those without mathematical inclinations interested. This novel is a wonderful read that should please anyone in search of a well-told, intriguing story."

-Kat Kennedy, US Review of Books

"The Tree of Knowledge is a thoroughly engrossing story of power gone awry. It is compelling and unpredictable right up to the end."

-D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review.
