After a shocking discovery in Masada, Israel, Sergeant Jordan Stone, Father Rhun Korza, and Dr. Erin Granger, racing against time to recover a book written by Christ's own hand, must contend with a force of ancient evil with impossible ambitions and a secret sect within the Vatican called the Sanguines.
Here is a novel that is explosive in its revelation of a secret history. Why do Catholic priests wear pectoral crosses? Why are they sworn to celibacy? Why do the monks hide their countenances under hoods? And why does Catholicism insist that the consecration of wine during Mass results in its transformation to Christ's own blood? The answers to all go back to a secret sect within the Vatican, one whispered as rumor but whose very existence was painted for all to see by Rembrandt himself, a shadowy order known simply as the Sanguines.In the end, be warned: some books should never be found, never opened—until now.
