The Da Vinci Code is written as fiction so if youâ€™ve read that, then why not try the fact. This well written and well researched book, by one of the trio who wrote The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail some 20 years ago now, challenges all our preconceived notions of the legend. Itâ€™s brilliant detective work. Fact or fiction â€“ why not decide for yourself?
Twenty years ago Michael Baigent and his colleagues stunned the world with a controversial theory that Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene married and founded a holy bloodline. His bestselling book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail (with co-authors Henry Lincoln and Richard Leigh) became an international publishing phenomenon and was one of the sources for Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code. Now, with two additional decades of research behind him, Baigent's The Jesus Papers presents explosive new evidence that challenges everything we know about the life and death of Jesus.
Who could have aided and abetted Jesus and why?

Who is working to keep the truth buried and why?
Taking us back to sites that over the last twenty years he has meticulously explored, studied, and in some instances excavated for the first time, Baigent provides a detailed account of his groundbreaking discoveries, including many never-before-seen photos.
