A change of style for this author, who usually writes under the name James Barrington. Moving in to the realms of the conspiracy theory novel this is as good if not better than any of the Dan Brown-esque novels out there. Becker is a great story teller and this is a refreshing addition to the religious thrillers doing the rounds at the moment.
An Englishwoman is found dead in a house near Rome, her neck broken.
Her distraught husband enlists the help of his closest friend, policeman Chris Bronson, who discovers an ancient inscription on a slab of stone above their fireplace. It translates as ‘Here Lie the Liars’. But who are the liars? And what is it they are lying about to protect?
Pursued across Europe, Bronson and his ex-wife uncover a trail of clues that lead them back to the shadowy beginnings of Christianity; to an ancient code inscribed upon a stone; to a chalice decorated with mysterious symbols.
And to a deadly conspiracy which – if revealed – will rock the foundations of our modern world.
