Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The Gospel of the title is reputed to have been written during Jesus’ life by an eye witness, so as authentic as it comes. Naturally the Catholic church want it to remain hidden. Through a series of dangerous excavations, history being rewritten, one clue leading to another and lots of action, we follow this improbable but highly enjoyable quest in a well-structured, really good read.

Comparison: Dan Brown, Steve Berry, James Rollins.

If you like David Gibbins you might also like to read books by Valerio Massimo Manfredi, Clive Cussler and Dan Brown.

Synopsis

The Last Gospel by David Gibbins

Jack Howard is about to discover a secret. Perhaps the greatest secret ever kept.

What if one of the Ancient World's greatest libraries was buried in volcanic ash and then re-discovered two thousand years later? What if what was found there was a document that could shatter the very foundations of the Western World? What if you were the one who discovered this secret? And were then forced to confront terrifying enemies determined to destroy you to ensure it goes no further?

This is the story of one last Gospel, left behind in the age of the New Testament, in the greatest days of the Roman Empire, and of its extraordinary secret, one that has lain concealed for years. Follow Jack Howard as he discovers the secret and must prevent others from doing the same...
