Note: This 2015 Edition makes fixes suggested by readers. The life of Dr. Stephen Saint Gabriel’s new love, Nicki Taylor, is in jeopardy. She’s kidnapped and her life threatened by the nefarious Dark Brothers, a rogue group of Catholic priests. Gabriel had discovered the writings of Mary Magdalene, describing her memories of Jesus as he carried out his ministry. But the manuscript had been stolen from Gabriel and secretly sold to the Catholic Church. All he had to share with the world were the photographic images his team had taken of the manuscript’s pages. Those very images are the ransom demanded by Nicki’s kidnappers. The cat and mouse game between the kidnappers, the FBI, and Gabriel takes them from the US to Jerusalem, the ruins of Jericho, a monastery in Qumran and back to the States in pursuit of Nicki and the warped priest, Michael Donovan, who has her fate in his hands. Gabriel suffers as he turns over the most important religious discovery in history and he suffers still more as Nicki’s fate seems more and more dire. Complex and fast-paced this adventure thriller will keep you guessing all the way to the unexpected ending. Some graphic language.
