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.

The concept of this book is realy interesting, but I just couldn't get into it. I found the writing, as well as most of the characterizations, to be tedious.

This story was fast-paced, full of action, mystery, history and a fun entertaining read. Payne and Jones are great characters and add a great deal to the story. Looking forward to my next adventure with these two wonderful characters.

Three crucifixions on 3 different continents...The discovery of an ancient conspiracy...A secret that could destroy the faith of billions.

On a Danish shore, a Vatican priest is found--hanging on a cross. Within days, the same crime is repeated...this time in Asia and Africa. Meanwhile, deep in the legendary Catacombs under Orvieto, Italy, an archaeologist unearths a scroll dating back 2,000 years, revealing secrets that could rock the foundations of Christianity. Its discovery makes him the most wanted criminal in all of Europe. But his most dangerous enemies operate outside the law of man...

I removed this book from my bookshelf and threw my copy away. The main point of the book besides being an action/suspense book was to discredit the validity of the Bible and Jesus Christ as the risen Son of God. I personally believe that Jesus in the Son Of God and risen from the dead therefore I can't in good conscience pass this book on to other readers who may not be able to read this as "fiction".
