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.
