It was interesting visiting all sorts of cities in Italy, Greece, Turkey, Israel and Egypt as well as beautiful religious sites in much detail. I really like books that cross genres cleverly but this book was a mish mash that was often very jarring!!

She has cahon than 20 million readers worldwide and has become the reference of quality bests-sellers in Spanish language. The Vatican high command clearly riven by some factionalism is scared by the rapid progress the nun makes and takes her off the case, only to reassign her when they find that precious relics and crosses related to the prior investigation are disappearing from various churches around the world.

The truth of the matter really is that I may well be categorized as one of those people who asfnsi grown tired of biblical mystery themed literature.

Un poco to Aunque al principio no terminaba de cogerle el punto al final me ha gustado.

Still, it was an entertaining, enjoyable read, and would probably make good summer fare. The characters were not internally consistent and thus became caricatures rather than complex human beings struggling with politics, world events and their Christian faith.

Refresh and try again.

However, the book depended too much on slapstick, silly humor and cheezy romance to gel things together. There are improbable protagonists who speak particularly improbably. Other reviewers have praised this book for the fact that it’s a romantic quest for paradise with emotional sophistication my words rather than an investigation of baddies.

It ended like it should. Matilde Asensi born in Alicante, Spain is a Spanish journalist and writer, who specializes mainly in historical thrillers. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

It isn’t long before the trio discovers that the strange tattoos of crosses and Greek letters link the corpse to the Staurofilakes, a secret brotherhood dedicated to protecting the “True Cross,” the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified. Other books in the series. No trivia or quizzes yet. The only questions remaining are why the secret cult is gathering the Cross remnants and what motivates Captain Kaspar Glauser-Royst.

Once it got going, I was completely snared. Either the translation is somewhat lacking or the author’s got a tin-ear for conversation.

I was a bit turned off when the main character, a nun, falls in love. Salina to a private meeting. Oct 05, Will Byrnes rated it liked it. Given only the sparest of details about the events surrounding the Ethiopian man’s death, Ottavia is ordered to discover the origins of and meaning behind the strange tattoos.

I have absolutely no interest in The Da Vinci Code or any books of that sort, but I picked this up ultimi two reasons: An academic nun, a archaeologist and a member of the Swiss Guard are put on an important mission to find out why true cross relics are being stolen from both Orthodox and Catholic churches throughout Chrisendom.

I was concerned that I’d go through all pages and be disgusted by the ending, as I was recently with Edgar Sawtelle, but that wasn’t the case here. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. But even as a picaresque, I thought it was bad.

Though well- researched and densely plotted, the story telling itself lags sometimes. What is with the modern obsession with Dante? Una lectura muy recomendada.
