The Blood Gospel
by James Rollins

A modern gothic thriller, perfect for fans of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code.

Sent to explore a subterranean temple revealed after a devastating earthquake in Israel, a trio of experts discover the mummified remains of a crucified girl. But as they excavate, a brutal attack sets them on the run and they're thrust in to a race to recover what was once preserved in the sarcophagus.

A book rumoured to have been written by Christ's own hand. Hunted by a force of ancient evil, Dr Erin Granger and her two companions must follow the trail back thousands of years, to a time when ungodly beasts hunted the dark spaces of the world. And here they stumble across a secret sect within the Vatican, one whose existence was painted by Rembrandt himself. A shadowy order known simply as The Sanguines.

Club Opinion

The second read [this month] was The Blood Gospel jointly written by James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell. This hadn’t been quite as widely read by the group but, as with the first choice, it was given the thumbs up with the only downside being that it’s the first book in a trilogy!
