'The Fifth Gospel is that rare story: erudite and a page-turner, literary but compulsively readable' David Baldacci

2004. As Pope John Paul II's reign enters its twilight, a mysterious exhibit is under construction at the Vatican Museums. A week before it is scheduled to open, its curator is murdered. The same night, a violent break-in rocks the home of the curator's research partner, Father Alex Andreou, a Greek Catholic priest who lives inside the Vatican with his five-year-old son. When the papal police fail to identify a suspect in either crime, Father Alex, desperate to keep his family safe, undertakes his own investigation.

To find the killer he must reconstruct the dead curator's secret. But just as he begins to understand the truth about his friend's death, and its consequences for the future of the world's two largest Christian Churches, Father Alex finds himself hunted down ...

The Fifth Gospel

A challenging read, which absorbs you into the complexities of the Vatican world, Christianity and human morals and beliefs. After a while I became enthralled, I questioned my own views and perceptions of the biblical texts and indeed the Shroud, enjoying all the historical content and references . JJ
