Someone is cloning Jesus.
After centuries of speculation, Dr. Gabe Miller is going to Turin, Italy. His task, using the latest imaging and carbon dating technology, is to once and for all accurately verify the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin – the purported burial cloth of Jesus Christ. However, that is not why he is really going. Unknown to Dr. Miller, his superiors are sending him to obtain blood samples from the Shroud. They have perfected a way to use DNA from any blood samples to recumbently clone humans. As Dr. Miller journeys to Turin, he is protected by the head of Vatican Security, Father Dolan. The isolated Father Dolan has a closet full of skeletons that he is atoning for. Miller has no idea of what he is getting into, but quickly discovers that people want him dead. As Dolan protects Miller, they uncover the real purpose behind the trip to Turin, but not before a woman is impregnated with the clone. Miller and Dolan risk all to rescue the pregnant woman, and in doing so, become hunted by a multitude of fanatical groups as they try to escape from the United States.
The Shroud of Turin has been in public awareness since 1350 when it was brought to France after the Second Crusades. It has become the Catholic Church's most visible and sacred relic. It has been said to endow divine healing power to those who touch it. Wars have been fought over it. The Church has been protecting it for over five hundred years. Why? Is the Shroud of Turin real? Could it be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ? If so, what of the pregnant women? Could the clone she is carrying be the second coming of Jesus?

While the story concept and the character development was excellent, the inconsistency within the book was horrible. The author couldn't have done much research before writing this and where was the editor or proofreader on this one? Examples: Italy is 7 hrs ahead of St. Louis. The author prefaced each chapter with the times for both places. The time difference kept changing. While several were the correct 7 hr difference, he then went to 5 hrs,, eight hrs, 9 hrs and in one place, 17 hrs which probably was due to the fact that he reversed the a.m. and p.m. The hair color of one character changed colors within a few paragraphs! Several typos including the same word typed twice within the sentence, omitted words which made the sentence incomplete and equal signs used instead of hyphens. Then we get to the medical errors. The woman is peacefully sleeping and has to be woken up by the nurse to be told that she is fully dilated and ready to push. Obviously, he has never been with a woman while she was in the final stages of labor. The conception takes place on February 16th and it's stated she's due around December 24th and actually delivers on the 23rd.. That's almost 46 weeks!!!!! Human gestation is 40 weeks. Honestly, did this author check any of his facts? If you can get past all the above, it is still worth the read as the story itself was good. It would have been a 5-star book if he had kept his facts straight and the editing had been better.
