The Blood Gospel by James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell, 671 pages, read by Judy, on 10/28/2013

A gothic tale about an ancient order and the hunt for a miraculous book known only as The Blood Gospel.

An earthquake in Masada, Israel, reveals a tomb buried in the heart of the mountains.   A trio of investigators – Sergeant Jordan Stone, a military forensics expert; Father Ruhn Korza, a Vatican priest; and Dr. Erin Granger, a brilliant but disillusioned archaeologist – are sent to explore the macabre discovery, a subterranean temple holding the crucified body of a mummified girl.

But a brutal attack at the site sets the three on the run, thrusting them into a race to recover what was once preserved in the tomb’s sarcophagus; a book rumored to have been written by Christ’s own hand, a tomb that is said to hold the secrets to His divinity.  But the enemy who hounds them is a force of ancient evil directed by a leader of impossible ambitions and incalculable cunning.

 

If you like books about devil, angels, vampires, and werewolves, you may really enjoy this book.      It was too much constant fighting with strange creatures for my liking.
