Apostle Killer

by Richard Beard

Apostle Killer Synopsis

A wildly inventive, darkly suspenseful novel that pits Christ's ';Passion as police procedural' (The Guardian).Set in a hazy Middle East that seems at once ancient and modern,The Apostle Killerfeatures Gallio, an aging, hardboiled investigator who has one last chance to save his career: He's got to prove Christ's resurrection was a hoax.To uncover the conspiracy behind the so-called resurrection, Gallio figures all he needs is for oneof the apostles to crack. The only problem is that one by one, the apostles keep dyingand in ever more grotesque waysjust before Gallio gets to them.Racing to save both his case and the witnesses he needs to solve it, Gallio begins to suspect he's become the unwitting pawn in the plot to kill the apostles . . . but who's behind it? And to what end? As Gallio realizes even his own superiors are not to be trusted,The Apostle Killertransforms from a dazzling literary experiment into a moving, haunting work of art.
