Synopsis

The Bible of the Dead by Tom Knox

A gripping high-concept thriller for fans of Dan Brown and Sam Bourne from the author of The Genesis Secret and The Marks of Cain. In the silent caves of deepest France, young archaeologist Julia Kerrigan unearths an ancient skull, with a hole bored through the forehead. After she reveals her discovery, her colleague is killed in suspicious circumstances. Meanwhile, in the jungles of south-east Asia photographer Jake Thurby is offered a curious assignment by a beautiful and determined Cambodian lawyer who is investigating 'finds' at the mysterious 2000-year-old Plain of Jars. 'Finds' which the authorities have gone to great lengths to keep secret. No one knows why. Back in England, an aged professor has been brutally and elaborately murdered. The murder remains unsolved. And it soon becomes clear that those who seek to unlock the compelling puzzle will be risking very much more than their lives.

Reviews

Praise for Tom Knox: 'Tom Knox knows the DNA of an astonishing thriller. THE MARKS OF CAIN is a compelling and frightening novel, and it may well be the most controversial thriller since THE DA VINCI CODE. Action, history, religion, and genetics combine for a gripping read that will keep you reading late into the night.
Jeff Abbott, bestselling author of PANIC and FEAR

'Steeped in both blood and history and keeps up a scorching pace from start to finish'
Northern Echo

'Knox writes with a clean efficiency. The characters are nicely wrought ! Best of all, Knox really knows his stuff and his discourses on ancient man, human sacrifice, demons of the mid-east and obscure pre-Judaic religions are all woven into the plot seamlessly. I'm reminded of why I always liked these type of books, because not only do the best ones grip and propel you through their pages but they also leave you a little more knowledgeable than when you started'
