UK crime thriller called THE DECALOGUE (by Mark Pettinger) uses the Ten Commandments as a plot - its a bit tenuous to your 'religion and religious conspiracy'; but give it a go

Would second the recommendation for C.J Sansom. You might have already read them, but 'Sanctus' and 'The Key' by Simon Toyne fall into this genre too.

A couple I remember reading and enjoying in the late 90's are The Miracle Strain by Michael Cordy (this is the same book as The Messiah Code by the same author - it was re-titled for some reason) and The Genesis Code by John Case.

Katherine Neville published a book called 'The Eight' back in the 80's, which revolves around a chess set. It is much better than most of the more recent thrillers written in this vein and as you can see pre-dates them by a few years. A couple of years ago a sequel 'The Fire' was published, not quite as good as 'The Eight' but definitely worth reading.

Sounds a bit as if your taste is for the Dan Brown type thrillers, in which case there are many (too many) books that have jumped on the "Da Vinci Code" bandwagon. However, if your taste leans towards historical novels, C. J. Sansom's "Shardlake" novels have quite a lot of religious background and are well worth reading (again, there have been numerous, generally inferior clones exploiting Shardlake's success). Coming to more recent times, but going back in terms of publication dates, Morris West was a very popular writer about thirty years ago and he wrote several intelligent thrillers with a strong religious setting.

Am a voracious reader of thrillers related to archaeology, religion, and religious conspiracy.
I am hoping someone knows of some I haven't read and I've read soooo many?
Any one out there who likes these also?
