Encrypted? No. There is no encryption, or decryption, going on here.
There are, supposedly, secret messages. However, these messages are
encoded (there is a difference) in the language of angels, which you
learn by burning priceless works of art, and observing the language of
angels symbols that show up, shining, when the artwork burns. (No, I
don't know how you are supposed to know what the symbol means. No, I
don't know why you can't just x-ray the artwork. No, I don't know how
you find out which artwork has the symbol that you need, when you need
it, and which artworks just burn to ashes for no purpose.)
Action-packed? Yes. In the "one d@"~3) thing after another" school
of plot development. There isn't a heck of a lot of logic to the
story, but there is enough action that you probably can't read it
through in one sitting without taking a time out to catch your breath.
Technothriller? No. There are supposed to be "hackers" involved in
the story, but there isn't really anything technical that they do.
