If you are an avid reader of mystery novels, then you would definitely love this book.

Codex Silenda was created by industrial designer Brady Whitney. Each page is a unique puzzle that the reader needs to unlock to be able to advance to the next page. The next chapters to the story are also locked by a more difficult puzzle.

The Book of Puzzles revolves around the adventures of Leonardo da Vinci’s apprentice who happened to encounter the puzzle. The Codex serves as a trap to prevent spies and other people from stealing Da Vinci’s works and the only means of escape is by solving the puzzle before Da Vinci returns from his trip.
