Overview

The Spear that pierced Christ's side on the Cross has played a secret, but major role in history. Charlemagne, Constantine, Otto the Barbarian, The Knights Templar and Adolf Hitler all owned it... and believed it gave them the power to rule the world.

What if they were right?

The first time Dr. Cait Monahan ever heard of the Spear of Longinus was the night her husband was murdered because of it. That was when the terror began.

...right before the U.S. Government, the CIA, Neo Nazis, the Vatican and a secret cabal of 13 powerful global manipulators sent their assassins after her and her 9 year old.

...just before a lethal secret propelled her across Europe following a riddle that hadn't been solved since the Holocaust.

...just before Cait Monahan became entrapped in an interdimensional labyrinth that her own husband may have helped design.

Now she's a player in a game that has led to mystery, magic, mayhem and murder for over 2000 years, and only the help of a tribunal of long dead men may be able to save her.

Vibrant and cerebral, filled with intrigue, Conspiracy Theory and more ancient secrets than the Dead Sea Scrolls, Lark's Labyrinth pits characters you'll care about against a mystery you'll want to solve.

Inside Lark's Labyrinth is a secret men have killed for ...now a woman, her sister, her child and their small band of friends are all that stand between us and the dark, insidious power that's a hairsbreadth away from ruling the world.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Politics and religion collide as Spellman (Bless the Child) delivers another fast-paced, suspenseful, and totally enjoyable thriller. When mathematical genius Jack Monahan and his parents are murdered, his wife, Cait, is thrust into a complex web of faith, mystery, magic, and ancient history. With little understanding of the powerful forces closing in around her, Cait must choose whom to trust and whether to believe in the existence of the Spear of Longinus, a sacred object that is said to hold absolute power and possible immortality. Soon, Cait and her daughter, Lark, are on the run, hunted by the same men who killed Jack: members of a power-hungry secret society that believe she and the brilliant Lark are the only people capable of unlocking the secret location of the Spear. Spellman's characters—particularly Cait and Lark—are well drawn, believable, and likable. The author constructs a blistering story—replete with political and religious intrigue—that never slows down and will keep readers turning the pages of this spectacular thrill ride. An absolute must for Spellman fans.
