*** FROM USA TODAY & MILLION COPY BESTSELLING AUTHOR J. ROBERT KENNEDY ***
WILL A SECRET DESPERATELY HIDDEN FOR OVER ONE THOUSAND YEARS BY THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH FINALLY BE REVEALED?
When a priest is found beaten to death inside the Vatican, the new Pope doesn't know who he can trust, and calls in outside help. When they disappear, those sent to inform His Holiness find him missing as well, the only clue a secret chest presented to each new Pope on the eve of their election, since the beginning of the Church.
Archaeology Professors James Acton and Laura Palmer are called to Rome to examine the chest and its forbidden contents, but before they arrive, they are intercepted by an organization older than the Church, demanding the professors retrieve an item stolen in ancient Judea in exchange for the lives of their friends.
It is the most infamous kidnapping in history, set against the backdrop of a two-thousand-year-old battle pitting ancient foes with diametrically opposed agendas.

Great action and suspense book. You can really see the characters. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
I’ve read 3 of this author’s Prof. Acton books so far. Two were decent. This one, not so much. It starts strong, but quickly falls into 3 pages of the author’s political views on campaign finance (apropos of nothing to do with the story) and then moves straight into an implausible (bordering in ridiculous) story. To be clear, the religious theme isn’t the issue: it’s the overall story plot.
