30 Pieces of Silver - Carolyn McCray

This book is an extremely controversial religious/historical thriller.  

 

Overview of 30 PIECES OF SILVER... A Christian suicide bomber. John the Baptist's bones inscribed in ancient Greek. A dark secret carried from the foot of the crucifixion. Can science solve the world's greatest mystery?

 

It's Dan Brown meets Sherlock Holmes and Indiana Jones.  Non-stop action and conspiracy theories abound and keep you riveted until the last page and leave you wanting for more (good thing there are other books in the series that follow).

 

There is historical fact and folklore.  It makes you rethink everything you have been taught about the death and crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  This book leaves you wondering "what if?".  It is thought provoking and shows you a different perspective of the death of Jesus and the events that transpired after his death.

 

This is an intelligent fun read with great characters that you will come to care about.

 

Bottom line, if you like Dan Brown, you will like this.  If you like conspiracies and thrillers, you will like this.
