Overview

On the bloody battlefields of Iraq, one man's quest to find God will unleash Hell.

For more than a decade, Nick Kismet has traveled the world protecting priceless relics and cultural heritage sites from looters, while searching for answers to the mystery that has haunted him since the first Gulf War-a mystery that has defined his life. Now, a new war has brought him back to the bloody battlefield where his search began.

Summoned by his friend and mentor, Pierre Chiron, Kismet soon finds himself on the trail of the holy relics of Solomon's Temple, captured centuries before by Babylonian conquerors and thought to be lost to history. But Chiron's quest is not merely to find ancient artifacts; he seeks to find proof-the very fingerprint-of God.

Driven to uncover secrets that have haunted mankind for millennia, pursued by a mysterious assassin and an enemy consumed by hatred, Nick and Pierre journey into the desert to find the terrible truth that lies behind...

The Shroud of Heaven.

    Very hard to put down

    The Shroud of Heaven is an intriguing, action-packed adventure that is full of twists that keep you guessing all the way along and will leave you wanting more.

    ....personally I cannot wait for the next Nick Kismet adventure.

    The fate of the world rests on his shoulders


    Literally. Our hero, Nick Kismet, is someone special. The story starts out running and never stops. Nick, who is a protector of art and artifacts gets into many sticky situations. However, there is a master manipulator who has decreed that Nick must not be killed. He has a purpose in the world. Nick is smart, strong, and dedicated. However, he seems a bit naïve. He is very likeable.


    In this first installment of the series we are given a little background about Nick and introduced to a man (Chiron) he befriends as a father figure. Chiron is grieving his dead wife who believed in God. Chiron doesn’t believe in God. In his grief he tricks Nick into helping him prove or disprove whether there is truly a God so that he can be at peace with his wife’s passing. This culminates in a very interesting theory about the Eiffel Tower and an atomic bomb. 


    This is a great story. It introduces theories that get one thinking and leaves one with questions that must be answered. I will be reading the rest of the series. If you like adventure novels that include the military, art, archeology, explosions, and interesting characters this is a book for you. Indiana Jones, The Librarian, Alan Quartermain look out, a new adventurer has come to town. Nick Kismet.

    Interesting mix

    I found this book to be a pretty good read even though it seemed to suffer from somewhat of an identity crisis. It appeared as though it couldn't decide between being a military adventure and an archeology adventure. Successful on both counts as it was, I think picking one and sticking with would have been more effective especially given the religious overtones. I vote for the archeology route as when it was in the forefront it was pure Indiana Jones at its best. Still I give it a grudging thumbs up. I will probably read the next book in the series.
