HOLLYWOOD, FL (PRWEB) May 28, 2009 -- With this week’s paperback release of his latest novel, THE BOOK OF LIES, New York Times bestselling author BRAD MELTZER (The Tenth Justice, The Book of Fate) has teamed up with the Masonic Geocaching Society to launch the first GPS treasure hunting game to accompany a novel.
Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share experiences online.
THE BOOK OF LIES geocache is a series of 11 caches in the Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia area that are based on THE BOOK OF LIES, Meltzer’s latest novel. It's a collaboration of the Masonic Geocaching Society and Meltzer, with johnnycache and Sue-Cat coordinating placement, cache pages and puzzle creation.
Many of the caches in the series will be puzzles that require finders to seek them in order (individual caches will state pre-requisites if applicable). The final cache in the series will be a puzzle that will require clues from caches in the series to solve. To play this geocache, visit http://www.BradMeltzer.com for details.
THE BOOK OF LIES is a modern day thriller centered around two historical mysteries: One deals with the missing murder weapon that Cain used to kill Abel, the other with the unsolved murder that led to the creation of Superman.
Based on intensive research into both the Bible story and the lives of Mitchell and Jerry Siegel (Meltzer interviewed Jerry Siegel's wife and daughter), THE BOOK OF LIES rings with the truth of what happened and of what could have happened. It is a thought-provoking and crackling story that sheds new light on the Siegel family, the creation of Superman and our assumptions about myths, legends, heroes and villains.
The Masonic Geocaching Society was launched at an event held at the Scottish Rite, House of the Temple in Washington, DC on November 1, 2009. More than 300 people were present for this event. The Masonic Geocaching Society is dedicated to the tenets of the Craft by providing an activity for Masons, their families, and the world at large that is fun and family friendly. Arguably, Freemasons were the first geocachers. For an article on the Masonic Geocaching Society, please visit http://www.scottishrite.org/srmasons/geocaching.html. Along with the first GPS treasure hunting game to accompany a novel, THE BOOK OF LIES also has a companion soundtrack, released by Victor Records (Sony BMG), and a movie trailer starring Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof and Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s Joss Whedon. The soundtrack, which features a mix of classical and contemporary hits as well as a newly recorded song titled "The Book of Lies," is available for sale on iTunes and Amazon.com.
