Jack and Michelle Townsend are looking for the original ending to Mark’s Gospel. Their search brings them to Rome where their lives are put in danger by two different groups who want to stop them from succeeding.
I’m sorry to say that I didn’t get past 30 pages of this one. Though the writing felt stilted, the prologue was a little promising, but it went downhill. The entire first chapter should have been omitted, in my opinion. I’d already figured out what I’m guessing should have been a mystery before the end of chapter two. The writing was too formal, and long-winded at times, with too much explanation and description. The dialogue always felt like two people who really didn’t like each other, yet they had to be civil.
I love a good suspense thriller, especially when it revolves around church history, but I can’t recommend this one at all.
Since I didn’t read very much of it, I can’t honestly use my usual rating system. But based on what I read, I can’t give this novel more than 1 out of 5.
