Like the DaVinci Code? Hate the DaVinci Code? Either way, this book will make you forget the DaVinci Code. A mystery, a thriller, a religious escapade all in one.
Catacombs in Italy contain a secret that has everyone from Interpol to the Vatican to rogue mercenaries on a frantic chase to either retain the secret or make it known throughout the world. How do modern day crucifixions tie into the the most well-known crucifixion? Why are people willing to die or kill to keep this secret or expose it?
A fast paced, action packed book that will have you asking questions and searching for answers along with the characters.

While the formula of the book may be similar to Dan Brown's bestseller, Chris Kuzneski comes up with a surprisingly original thriller. He even pays homage to Dan Brown, when the character Nick Dial, looking for help in the crucifixions, asks, "What do you know about the Bible?" The response is, "More than Dan Brown."

This book is a page turner with more action and suspense than you could ever expect.

Kuzneski writes a very good story. I look for well-developed characters, storylines, plots, settings, etc., and this book has it. His stories keep you interested to the end.
