(From the publisher):
A renowned curator of ancient documents, Dr. Jack Gould has examined priceless biblical manuscripts before. But nothing prepares him for what he finds when he travels to Moscow at the urgent request of an old friend. Translating the verse on a recently unearthed parchment, Jack realizes with a sickening chill that what he is reading are the radical thoughts of Jesus, written in his own hand. Ideas quite different from traditional Catholic beliefs.
Indeed, before Jack has a chance to act on his discovery, he is caught in a terrifying crossfire between those who will do anything to possess the document and those desperate to destroy it. And both sides see him as a man who must be elminated. With a beautiful secret agent, the only one he dare trust, Jack races from the new, but still dangerous, Russia to safe houses in London and then on to the stormy coast of Ireland. He's one step ahead of his pursuers, knowing that his only choice -- his only hope -- is to uncover the truth.
