Overview

Meet Wyatt Rook: lawyer, historian, detective.

A World War II bomber has been unearthed half a century after vanishing on a secret mission over Nazi Germany. Liz Hannah, the pilot's granddaughter, hires Rook to investigate.

Rook's inquiries lead him into a shadowy world of religious secrecy that involves the crucifixion at Golgotha, the Crusades, the Inquisition, and Satanism.

With a painting and a map as clues, Rook (and the reader) must solve a series of biblical mysteries and impossible crimes to unravel the greatest locked room puzzle of all: how did Jesus escape from his tomb?

Blocking the lawyer at every turn is the Legionary of Christ, a modern Crusader backed by the morphed Inquisition, which will stop at nothing to keep the Judas puzzle - the Achilles heel of the Christian Bible - from being solved.

"A smoking hot read! Prepare to be entertained. Slade conjures up a Christian's worst nightmare. This slick whodunit is full of twists and turns." - The CTV Network

"If you want a series of mysteries better than the puzzles in THE DA VINCI CODE, CRUCIFIED is your book. Slade has all the hot buttons punched. There is gore to the armpits, some fine lunatics, a touch of heresy, and a fiendish religious cabal that will stop at nothing to keep the world from discovering that the New Testament may just be hogwash." - The Globe and Mail

"Unfolds with effortless readability, despite the fact it ranges over two millennia. There are twists aplenty, scenes of gruesome torture and murder (with Inquisition tools, of course), and a series of small mysteries leading up to the larger mystery at the center of the book. It leaves one wanting more." - Quill & Quire

"Those with an insatiable appetite for conspiracy thrillers will be most rewarded." - Publishers Weekly

"BOOK OF THE MONTH. This Satanic shocker is a walloping murder mystery that cuts throats and shows no quarter. Slade's grip on claustrophobic, clammy suspense is masterful. Ambitiously dark, sophisticated, and complex. Enjoy." - Fangoria

"Creatively combines religious milestones to pose a highly plausible threat to the Christian Church." - The Advocate

"As far as occult thrillers go, this is a fun one. In a time-hopping adventure that's part INDIANA JONES and part DA VINCI CODE, Slade plays various historical events off each other with verve, drawing us into his characters with believable dialogue and lots of bloody action." - Kirkus Reviews

"CRUCIFIED delivers a reliable trio of mystery, sex, and gore. The plot moves at breakneck speed. Enjoy the ride." - Precedent

"An entertaining thriller of biblical proportions. Intent on stopping Wyatt Rook from solving the Judas puzzle, a possessed priest uses medieval torture devices to rack up a gruesome death toll. Tracing it all back to Jerusalem in 33 A.D., Rook solves a conundrum of three locked room puzzles in a suspenseful, globe-trotting pressure cooker of a climax. CRUCIFIED will do more for your brain than a crossword puzzle." - Rue Morgue
