The Magdalene Deception
The very foundations of Christianity are at stake in this intelligent thriller set in the Vatican Secret Archives. Join Father Michael Dominic and investigative reporter Hana Sinclair, along with a trio of valiant Swiss Guards, as they try to prevent an explosive manuscript written by Mary Magdalene from falling into the wrong hands—including those in the highest ranks of the Vatican.
ADVANCE PRAISE FROM NETGALLEY REVIEWERS:This book was absolutely fantastic. The subject matter was clearly well-researched, and the characters compelling, and I like that the author didn’t take the “easy way out” as the characters developed their chemistry. The first couple of chapters were slower paced than what you’d find in a typical thriller, but I don’t count that as a bad thing. It was clear the author was taking time to shape what the reader needed to know. A slow burn burns just as hot. The action picked up and I kept turning the pages until it was over and I was wanting so much more. There was a hint that the story will continue with the characters, and if that’s the case, I will follow along. It’s hard not to compare stories like this with those that became so popular, but I found I liked this book far better than Dan Brown’s DaVinci Code. — KIM CHEEL * * * *
If, like me, you find the concept of secret, mysterious Vatican archives and a long tumultuous religious history, mixed with strong characters and moral dilemmas interesting, then this books is for you… For me this is the books greatest strength, the time spent developing the characters whilst also letting me go on the journey with them in a way which made it very hard for me to stop reading! — SANTINO DECARO * * * *
