La Hermandad de la Sábana Santa/The Brotherhood of the Shroud of Turin A fire at the Turín Cathedral, where the Shroud of Turín is kept, occurs again. After the fire is controlled, a man is found that has no tongue and no fingerprints. Marco Valoni and his team from the prestigious Italian Art Departmentget on the case. They are in charge of safekeeping, recovering, and authenticating relics, and are suspicious that the fires at the Cathedral are because someone wants to steal the Shrine. The book starts in the year when our Lord Jesus Christ was still walking the Earth. The king of Edesa, Abgaro, (modern day Urfa in Turkey) is dying from leprosy. He sends Josar to Jerusalem to get the Nazarene (Jesus) to come to his kingdom to cure him. Jesus sends Josar back with news that one of his disciples will come and cure the king. Josar converts to Christianity and abandons everything and sells everything to follow Jesus. After Jesus is crucified, Josar take the sheet where he was laid and brings it back to Edesa. When the king touches it, he is cured. Edesa becomes a Christian enclave and Thadeus, one of the disciples, lives there for a while. Unfortunately, the king son's Maanu is fiercely anti Christian, so he will destroy everything that has to do with Jesus, including the sacred shrine. To safeguard the hiding place in Edesa, all involved, decide to cut their tongues, so that the evil Maanu can't find it. The hiding place is kept secret from father to son until the town is siege by the Byzantines, and the shroud is uncovered and the town is saved. But the Byzantine emperor, Romano Lecapeno, stole the shroud and ever since the descendants of Edesa are trying to recover it. The Templars bought the shroud from the Emperor, because he was broke, and they become their guardians. But when the last "official Templar", Francois de Charny, is burnt by the Inquisition, the shroud, covered by a second cloth is sent away to Scotland. Surprisingly, the blood and figure of Christ is transferred to the second cloth, which explains why this copy is from the XIIIth century and why the Templars hid the original one where no one knows where it is. The Templars persist up to day and are involved in almost everything that goes on, with power, money, and connections everywhere, including the Vatican. As the story of the Shroud is told, the crimes of the cathedral are solved by the Italian Art Department, at the cost of many lives and a truth that is so fantastic that it can't be told. Once again Julia Navarro uses the Universal point of view and again her characters are very well developed. Unfortunately, in my edition, Chapter 31 is repeated twice and then I'm sure something was left out. After reading her later two novels, I must say that this is not her best effort. She is slow and repetitive and the story does not grab you like in her further novels. She is not believable like in her other work. It was an OK read, but I would skip this one and just read the other two.

Esta es otra serie de libros con las bases biblicas. Especificamente para personas que conocen Escrituras y buscan entretenimiento sano.

a thriller needs money, blood and sex. not this one. in this novel you can find a close link between present days and historical events. no sex but it's an extremely fascinating book with a dramatic ending. I feel so sorry for the terrible destiny of Ana, the journalist, but an excellent work needs some sacrifices.
