Product description

Review

Heart-stopping suspense, ancient mysteries and rollercoaster action ... a book that will have you cheering as you read (James Rollins )

The story crackles with tension and imagination from the first to the last page . . . intrigue, treachery, history and a wealth of secrets. Super (Steve Berry )

From the Back Cover

A long lost gospel - the Evangelium Gaspar - holds the truth about Jesus of Nazareth and whoever possesses it will wield unlimited power . . .

The death of the pope triggers a plot to seize the papacy. A shadowy conspirator and members of Santa Muerte, a satanic brotherhood, seek a lost gospel which holds a devastating truth about the Christain faith, which they will use to blackmail the Vatican.

But first they have to secure it . . .

Cædmon Aisquith, Templar expert and former MI5 operative, receives an ominous ransom demand: find the Evangelium Gaspar or your kidnapped daughter will be killed. Racing against time, he must solve a series of clues involving esoteric symbols and artfully encoded riddles. All the while staying one step ahead of the bloodthirsty Santa Muerte.

From India to Spain, and finally to a Merovingian church in the heart of Paris, Cædmon hunts the most explosive secret of all - a two-thousand-year-old cover-up that will forever change the course of history.

I read and enjoyed the previous adventures of Caedmon and Edie. While the plots were very much in the style of The Da Vinci Code - the two main characters were so different from the usual fair I couldnt help but like them.
I can't say I liked them much at all this time round. Caedmon has become an over-the-top. overeducated "English gentleman" charicature. He spent the whole book either physically or emotionally wringing his hands over a daughter he has never met, nor knew existed until about page five in the story. If he ever had an skills as an MI5 agent - he's pretty much forgotten them in this book as he goes about with tears threatening his eyes or wincing over his sore ribs after getting beat up every few pages.

Edie is almost still Edie - but even though she is supposed to be Caedmon's partner, the importance of their quirky, unlikely relationship, which was so endearing in the first books, has been pushed aside in favour of the "relationship" between Caedmon and his daughter (the soap opera daughter who no one knew existed until she's suddenly added to the cast). Another reviewer said that she felt something was missing from this book - in my opinion - this is it. Caedmon and Edie - their relationship, their "can't keep their hands of each other" sex, the sense that they are a team. Edie isnt the partner in this book - she follows Caedmon around while he wrings his hands and tries not to cry.

The story itself was a slog to get through (I am baffled by comments like "fast paced" and "exciting" in other reviews). The Latino thugs had an almost superhuman knack of turning up in the right place at the right time (even the back seat of a rental car from out of nowhere).

Written as if the author was dependent on showing their knowledge of obscure words an phrases, if I ever read the words bete noire again it will be too soon. A shame as the storyline has merit, but the main character appears to slip between precocious historian and Hollywood action hero - a personality that doesn't come off

Some of the themes are grossly incorrect and therefore irritating. Although a novel, with an interesting story line, the background material, especially in relation to the reliability of New Testament documents, is severely misleading at best, and offensive to many.

I bought this book in a mad rush on Brussels airport as I hate having nothing to read on a flight except work stuff. So I did not paid too much attention what I have bought, but I was very and very positively surprised by my purchase.

From take off till I finished it a few days later I was hooked. It is fast paced thriller, with nice twist and turns. Very entertaining.

As with all this kind of books I do not understand why one takes the religious dimensions serious. It is a novel, a thriller, not a religious book.

So just enjoy the story. I have already ordered my second book by C.M. Palov.

Sorry, but quite possibly the worse book I've ever read. Off the shelf stereotypical characters all the way. When the world is so full of "Da Vinci Code" style books, this is one we could quite happily do without.

I've read all of the Palov books containing these characters and i think this is the best yet. In this story we see a new side to Caedemon that we haven't seen in the previous 3 books. Also a real structure of a storyline that you can sink your teeth in to, albeit a storyline that has been used before. However for a religious conspiracy nut, I'd have to say that this is up there with the best of them. On a separate note, however much id like to imagine Caedemon to look and act like Damien Lewis, in my head he always appears like Phillip Seymour Hoffman (just with ginger hair!)

A definite read for lovers of Dan Brown and Chris Kuzneski.

One of the worst written books I have ever read. A dreary plot, stretched out over far too many pages with endless boring padding quite superfluous to the action.
