A smart, intelligent thriller with something for everyone. This new religious conspiracy genre created by Dan Brown has had many knock-offs. None, however, have the depth and scope of Weber's novel. He peels away the glossy finish you find in most spy thrillers, prying deeply into his two major female character's motivations, flaws, and past. The visceral action of Ludlum combined with the realism of John Le'Carre'.

Dan Ronco author of Unholy Domain

 An amazing story,  including the Knights Templar, the Italian Secret Service, the Vatican, the Holy Grail, the Holy Bloodline, cryptography, Mossad agents, the FBI's DNA database, all weaved together in a fast-paced, believable storyline. Weber's research into religious history and artifacts provides the detail that makes the story believable. His characters, and there are a lot of them, are well-developed, especially the two female protagonists. Solomon's Key is the best to date of the religious conspiracy genre.

The CODIS Project is an extremely informative book that cannot be read casually as it requires some concentration to keep up with the facts, information as well as plethora of characters. The authors have created enough intrigue to keep you turning the pages. The central "hook", of course, is the fact that CODIS, the FBI's DNA database, has found a historical link to the DNA of a notorious Islamic terrorist. Elements of Rome, the Vatican, the scared feminine, cryptography and Masonic symbolism, are liberally interspersed with modern day action of Nick Rossi and Josie Schulman. Overall a great read if you love the Dan Brown genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting and a great read..., Mar 12 2008 Momto3 Canada
I have never read a book laid out this way....inserts of facts throughout that made it a definite unique and intriguing read. I honestly found it almost impossible to decipher the difference between fact and fiction, and found myself having to read several passages over a couple times to try to understand it better. The book can get very complicated in many areas, but the chapters are nice and short and your attention is always held. I am now fascinated with the history of the Church as we know it, and found this book to be extremely educational and thought provoking...I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is especially interested in Religious Conspiracy Thrillers.


Religious Thriller Buffs, Don't Miss Solomon's Key: The Codis Project by R. Douglas Weber

Dan Brown's religious conspiracy genre series has resulted in many knock-offs but none of them offer the insight and depth of Weber's novel, Solomon's Key. While unbelievable, the reader will find Weber's novel even meatier than Brown's as they experience the novel way in which he blends the Vatican, movie star cult icons, spies, and even a steamy love triangle into a complex recipe for a spy thriller. Additionally, the reader will enjoy the way that Weber provides a history lesson that introduces them to the secret rituals used by secret societies to bridge the gap between this world and the next. Weber uses mentor character, Professor Giovanni, to explain the secret of the divine feminine by saying "They believed that sex was the key or bridge to God or the cosmos and that the Old Testament's Song of Solomon is a path-working guide to the hidden corridor." Giovanni is then portrayed to explain how Mary Magdalene was the opener of the way ... the sexual initiatrix. The book's originality lies in its unflinching examination of religious history in which the true motivating factors of men rest in their willingness to build empires on the ruins of the sacred feminine goddess.

With this as his premise, R. Douglas Weber dives fearlessly into previously uncharted feminine mysteries as he probes the sacred potential of sexuality, of secrets kept hidden from the unworthy and of truths hidden in plain sight. By using CODIS ... the FBI's Combined DNA Index System a link is found between the past and present. Between a royal bloodline and the world's foremost terrorist. This link is used to bring in the Knights Templar who has vowed revenge over the downfall of their kind at the hands of the papacy.In a subplot, reunited lovers, Italian Secret Service agent Nick Rossi and beautiful Mossad agent, Josie Schulman, battle an al-Qaeda orchestrated wave of terrorist attacks directed against the Vatican and the newly elected Pope. However, the investigation means plunging into Rossi's own past and into the arms of Basha, the alluring stranger, who may be his downfall. The ancient scroll they seek unlocks the Holy See's brutally suppressed truth concerning the divine feminine and her role as Gatekeeper and is located beneath the Dome of the Rock, in Solomon's Temple.

The ultimate deception occurs as world leaders converge on Rome for the Pope's funeral, while Rossi and Josie race against time following a trail of cryptic symbols hidden within Albert Durer's German Renaissance engravings. The keys to the mystery itself points to a secret Masonic nexus of power and will reveal the secrets of the Widow's Son.

While the action-filled intriguing plot of Solomon's Key will hold men's attention, women are sure to find the main truth, of the Divine Mother, empowering.

I found Solomon's Key to be far more advanced in the religious and secret society genre than The DaVinci Code and I would recommend it for readers who desire a real insight into religious history, as well as, an opportunity for a marvelous read.


While being popular fiction this novel is not just some shiny play toy like DVC. It goes much deeper into the hidden history of secret societies, so be prepared to take a deep plunge.

Solomon's Key is set in a universe where fact mingles imperceptibly with fiction, where secret societies chart the true course of human evolution, and the occult exerts its subversive influence on reality in ways barely glimpsed by the average individual. It is extremely informative and holds your attention. It encourages you to pay closer attention as to what is going on around you. My favorite part of this book were the manipulations taking place in the current era that are directly connected to ancient mysteries. It may be mostly speculation, but it's quite convincing.

The ultimate value of reading this book is discovering your own reaction to the ideas in question. In other words, it's a way of understanding the depth that you might be buried within any religious deception or controlling agencies. With that being said, I must say I enjoyed this book very much, because it's entertaining as well as informative. I have long felt that religion is a hindrance that does not allow man to question. Do I believe in a worldwide conspiracy, yes because all conspiracies have a level of truth to them, no matter how farfetched they are, there is a foundation for these ideas.

Weber is certainly "out there" in terms of his overall theory of the sad state of some of the world's most powerful religions and terrorist organizations. He takes the position that the terrible things that have happened throughout history and are happening today are the result of behind the scenes manipulation by sinister leaders. Weber pounds away at orthodox versions of history and religion and does so in an extraordinarily convincing and entertaining manner.

There is much that is good about this book, much that is truth, and much dialogue which springs from an esoteric level. The research is often scholarly and at other times it's nonexistent. Don't take everything in it as gospel, but let him lead you through a magical mystery tour of facts and connections that often have basis in truth. You won't think about the things you see or the news which you read the same way again.

This book handles different sciences to one overall science: the many hidden agendas connected to some of our latest archaeological discoveries and new understandings of ancient mysteries. Solomon's Key integrates history, biology, archaeology, politics, military tactics, psychology, occult sciences, and last but not least the art of manipulating the masses by hiding the truth. This book not only deals with the conspiracies in the world, it also opens the closed vaults of secret societies and their applications in world politics and mass control.

Last month, while in Florence, Professor Langdon uncovered an ancient parchment that historians now believe may be the work of Leonardo da Vinci. The encoded parchmentbearing the name La Profezia (The Prophecy)raised eyebrows when scholars discovered it was signed "LSPDV." (Leonardo's full name was Leonardo Ser Pieri Da Vincio).

More intriguing still is the legend that the visionary Leonardo, in the days before his death, made a powerful prophecy about the future. Could this be Da Vinci's long lost prediction? Historians remain eager to learn what this parchment says. The code has yet to reveal its mystery, but Robert Langdon is very close to finding the key to deciphering the message.
Leonardo's encoded message consists of 24 symbols. Robert Langdon is certain there exists a key, and he is working very hard to find it.

The "Sacred Geometry" of the Masonic layout of streets in Washington, D.C., will most likely lead Brown's Professor Langdon to discover that Fort Marcy Park lies along the same line as that made by the National Mall, which lies between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, and that extending that line almost all the way across the United States would pass directly through the Mormon Tabernacle Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. (Oddly, the Mormon Tabernacle is closed to the public throughout 2006.) Even more eerie, a line drawn from the Washington Monument to Rock Creek Park, where the body of Chandra Levy, a attractive Jewish woman who was a federal Bureau of Prisons intern and the secret lover of a Congressman, was found in 2002, would, if extended, pass through the Scottish Rite Freemasonic Center in D.C., as well as through Freemason's Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Above Levy's name is handwritten the words "Shari Eli." Perhaps a character name? Chandra is Sanskrit for "light," that which Masons claim to seek.

One of the strangest pages may be this list of statues and monuments in the Washington, D.C. area, with perplexing phrases after them:

  • D.C. Masonic Temple — Irish ale
  • Jeff Memorial — A fenced in miser
  • Albert Pike statue — Fresh cad onto a monk
  • Persephone statue on Capitol — Hi, Israel
  • Geo. Washington Masonic Memorial — Print a rug, Ben
  • Washington Obelisk — Accords femmes

Notes: The last one may refer to the Washington Monument. "Accords femmes" translates from French into "women's agreements."

George Washington and Albert Pike were both Freemasons, as was Ben Franklin, who may be the "Ben" referenced in one of the phrases. "Ben" may also refer to the character Ben Gates in the film National Treasure.

The message of the Georgia Guidestones, written in English, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Spanish, and Swahili is:

  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
  3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
  4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.
