Book Description

Zena McGrath is a detective working for an International Police Organisation at their Dublin Office. A routine day is turned upside down when she receives a call from her boss in the New York office.

A number of Catholic Priests have died in mysterious circumstances, the latest being an Irish Priest based at the Vatican. The Vatican authorities claim the deaths are due to natural causes. Brian Evens; Zena’s Superior officer based in New York tells Zena she must fly to Rome and meet a high-ranking Vatican Priest to discuss the case.

When Zena arrives at the Vatican she is greeted by Cardinal Donatello, a mysterious figure who has responsibility for training priests in the secretive and highly dangerous art of Exorcism. He reveals to Zena that the Priests who have died were all Exorcists and takes her on a shocking visit to see a Priest who is possessed by evil spirits.

Cardinal Donatello reluctantly reveals the seriousness of the problems the Vatican is facing in the eternal battle between good and evil and Zena herself has a chilling encounter with a demonic presence. Although shocked and disturbed by what she has seen at the Vatican, Zena is persuaded by Cardinal Donatello to allow the Vatican Authorities to fight the evil in their own way and not pursue her investigation.

Zena convinces Brian Evens that there is nothing to investigate at the Vatican and prepares to return to Dublin, only to be summoned to New York when another Catholic Priest is discovered brutally murdered. Zena flies to New York with a Bible given to her by cardinal Donatello and an evil presence following her every move.

During the course of the murder investigation in New York Zena is persuaded to take part in a Satanic Ritual in order to let her see into the past and reveal the murderer of the Priest. Whilst in a trance she sees the people responsible for the crime and the shocking truth leads her back to Rome and the culprit.

Cardinal Donatello is deported to New York to stand trial for his part in the crime and during the course of the trial the whole shocking truth of the Catholic Church’s battle against evil and the extent of satanic worship is revealed to the incredulous world. Cardinal Donatello is found guilty of his crimes and the revelations spark worldwide revulsion against all forms of religion, something that Zena with her insights into the world of Satan had warned of.

Zena returns to Ireland as the overthrow of world religions gathers pace to find peace and to try and rid herself of the evil spirits that are haunting her. Her quest leads her to the Holy Land in an attempt to find God and inner peace.

The events in the Holy Land lead to a climactic and shocking finale to this tale of good against evil the second coming.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too empty of substance 26 April 2014
By M White
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another reviewer has used the term 'shallow', and I had that word In my mind throughout reading this. The characters have little congruence with their positions given to them in the story, and the overall plot is just lacking. If this is the author's first book then fair enough, as it reads like someone is having a go at writing without having the required skill to pull off a great result. But they have had a go, which is more than I have done, so maybe they will have a bit more experience from having written this when they come to work on their next publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read 11 Sept. 2012
By Spudie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is fantastic. It has a gripping storyline that makes you not want to put the book down. It makes you think whether there really is more to this world then we think. The charachters all have their own stories within the plot, its extremely well written and easy to follow with a gripping end that makes you want more. I hope the author writes another so we can enjoy the adventures of Zena Mcgrath some more. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete drivel 23 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is awful. Complete drivel. The plot was obviously worked out on the back of a cigarette packet and the characters are one dimensional at best. The author seemed to be more interested in telling you what time the main character went to sleep and woke up than expanding on the plot or her conspiracy theory. Rubbish!

5.0 out of 5 stars unusual and attractive 3 Mar. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I choose that rating, because the book is unusually interesting, the subject treated is not seen before.
It is highly controversial, but nonetheless can appeal to many readers, as it makes you reflect on your own believes.
Forgotten Word is written in such a style, that makes it very easy to read and therefore within reach to anybody.
The book is highly entertaining and keeps you curious until the very end.
His characters are very human and one's can relate to.
I suspect there is more to it and I hope that Sam Jane Brown will content us with a follow up.
This book is her first attempt at writing and in my eyes, a real success.
It is very detailed and I could see it in being made into a film.
I encourage anybody whose in for a good time to get it!
