With the Vatican in turmoil, SIGMA Force leaps into action.

For there are those with dark plans for the stolen sacred remains that will alter the future of humankind . . . when science and religion unite to unleash a horror not seen since the beginning of time.

An amazing thriller of historic proportions

This thriller has more twists and turns than the ancient stories that are revealed. At times difficult to follow, as there are plots within plots and the history and detail can sometimes obfuscate the thread of the story.

However, high action, extensive international travel and clever use of history and alchemy keeps you guessing to the end.

Written for a movie It could be re-titled "Jack Ryan in the alternative The Da Vinci Code".

worthwhile read

Enjoyable read. Nice historical fiction without going overboard. I would read other works by this author. Recommended for escapism from the daily distractions.
