New Shroud Novel: A Cardinal’s Sin: Attack on the Holy See

imageFirst published, March 14, So far, this book seems to only be available from Amazon in Kindle format. The price is $7.99. Amazon Prime members, however, may borrow the Kindle version for free. Here is a brief description:

Alat Farad, an Islamic terrorist group, steals the Shroud of Turin. Mikiel Cardinal Bleschev learns of the theft but convinces the Pope to deny its loss. Alat farad publishes in Reuters their claim and their ransom—a lot of cash and certain documents dangerous to the Vatican be made public. Bleschev again convinces the Pope to deny the existence of the documents. Payment of the cash financially will hurt the church. Publishing the documents might destroy the church—either will cause the Catholic population to lose faith in the Vatican.

A fast-paced thriller that goes far beyond the walls of the Vatican.

  1. Secrets have been threatening to destroy the Vatican for centuries if not a millenia and a half. Somehow, I am reminded of Scripture: Beware false prophets.

    I have been debating whether Amazon Premium was worth it. I was unconsciously enrolled in a year ago for free trial without my realizing it but decided against it renewing it, and that was before the price was jacked up.

    Right now, I feel towards Amazon the way I feel about Google. The reach is amazing and I couldn’t be writing as effectively as I think I am without them. To get out of print books like the complete works of David Sox on the Shroud (three volumes) or a book on the making of “Silent Witness” through Amazon was amazing, But the arbitrary manner in which they operate is seriously wrong.

    I used to have a beautiful picture of the harbor in Rockport MA as my Google wall paper. . Them Google decided it wanted the space for advertising so now I get inane wall papers with blinking lights and marching letters. I hate it. But the convenience of Google mail and that where ever I am on whatever computer I am working on, I have access to years of E-Mail, is amazing and extraordinarily useful. To replicate through other providers would cost a bundle and a lot of time programming it.

    The only alternative is Apple and they are an even more stringent regime – and ultimately more expensive,

    Google, Amazon and the Apple could teach the Vatican a few things about maintaining discipline. (See, I brought this rant back to topic).

    Anyway, I find the truth about the Vatican more interesting than the fiction.

  2. Nobody dies horribly in Chapter 1, which makes a pleasant change from the style of recent novels on the Shroud. Just a few broken teeth…
