The Sublime & The Ridiculous Entwined

This book kept me enthralled, and I got my earphones out at every opportunity. The story is of a high-flying American financier who decides to take a holiday. During his period of leave, he becomes entangled in the search for a medieval document, the eponymous "Codex" of the title. The story is exciting and moves at a pace; it is built around the alleged conflict between an English duke & duchess.

The story works its way up to an exciting conclusion. The conclusion, however, never comes. In a nutshell, the story just stops. It's extremely annoying and leaves the listener feeling totally short-changed.
