Book 2 in The Magdalene Chronicles series

During his routine work in the Vatican Secret Archives, Father Michael Dominic discovers a mystifying 13th-century puzzle constructed for the legendary Cathars by famed Italian cartographer Pietro Vesconte. When solved by investigative journalist Hana Sinclair, the puzzle reveals a cryptic map—one that leads to an obscure cave in the fabled Languedoc region of France—where Dominic and his friends unearth a sacred reliquary of astonishing importance and considerable threat to the Church. Fending off attacks by feared Ustasha agents and a powerful Russian oligarch bent on acquiring the object for his vast private collection, Dominic joins forces with Roma gypsies and the Italian Art Squad to ensure the artifact doesn’t reach the lucrative black market in antiquities.

Sure to thrill fans of Gary’s bestselling book The Magdalene Deception, this second installment in The Magdalene Chronicles series is enlivened by historical figures and events brought to life with page-turning intensity. Available for Amazon pre-order soon, but early readers can purchase digital editions (Kindle, Apple Books, EPUB, PDF) on this site now.
