Had he not, in his hungover state, opened the e-mail, Graham could have continued on his predetermined successful, if dysfunctional, path and never embarked on the paradigm-shifting journey that so loosens his grasp on reality and obliterates not only what he chooses to believe but what he trusts as fact. With the help of his long-term girlfriend, his quirky Mensan best friend, and his wild and athletic best girlfriend since childhood, he sets out to decode this complex cryptogram, which he soon discovers is charged with the potential to unhinge the very control that certain government officials are intent, at all costs, on maintaining.
In the vein of Dan Brown, MD Tchaves takes the reader on an electrifying hunt for what is real and what is possible, encountering along the way politics, conspiracy, fringe medicine, history, and language, and what it means to survive—thrive, even—when you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. Decoding the Phoenix is a 50,000-word thriller that proves that love and humor may not be the answer, but that without these variables there is no worthy solution to any challenging problem or improbable situation.
MD Tchaves is a storyteller who blends fact and fiction and religion and secret societies. Decoding the Phoenix is a natural outcropping of the author's degree in Language Literature and Criticism from Hunter College and interest in religion, politics, and fake news. The book is the first in a planned trilogy that offers readers the ability to engage with a codex distinct from the narrative and interpret a letter that possesses real-world relevance.
