Yael becomes an amateur detective when the Vatican receives a ransom demand. The problem is this item apparently taken isn’t in any records, and no one has any answers. Mary Magdalene had a prophecy that when the world was filled with confusion and chaos, a man and a woman would use the Magdalene Treasure to guide humanity and ensure its survival and set the stage for the return of Christ. But now the treasure has been taken and it’s vital that it is recovered. Will the leather-fixer/amateur sleuth be able to find the thief responsible in order to safely recover the treasure. There’s more to be revealed about the prophecy as tensions and threats mount.
An interesting book that connects spirituality with crime fiction and thrillers. This is the first book in ‘The Magdalene Prophecy’ series and it’s full of action, twists and turns that will keep you reading to the very end. The combination of Christianity and crime fiction makes this a potential future read for fans of ‘The Da Vinci Code’ series and of Peter James’ Absolute Proof. I like books that take a well-known story and ask “what if?” to create something brand new. The author develops the characters well, taking time to flash back to Yael’s past, allowing us to understand her and her motivations as she tracks clues across Europe.
Adding female strength to the stories from The Bible, this is a brilliant read full of twists and turns and will leave you guessing until the end.
