Having been a fan of Dan Brown, I think I am going to have to change my allegiance to Ross Robertson. A Yearning for Jacob's Son is much the better thriller than any of Brown's books and certainly more succinct in how Scottish Freemasons were instrumental in the formation of United States. It is also better written, uses better language -though sometimes more colourful- uses more humour and is much more exciting. What's more, it is certainly more controversial. In other words, not only does A Yearning for Jacob's Son reveal that there are Masonic and Jewish symbols at the Scottish home of the late Queen Mum, it also offers a plausible theory that there could be a bloodline that connects the present Queen to Jesus Christ and the ancient Church of Jerusalem. Throw into its storylines and subplots a strategy by a DC private equity organisation to ensure the Faslane Nuclear base in Scotland remains open and a conspiracy by a large oil company to bring down the Scottish Government then what you have is a fictional account of something which could not only be very real indeed but far more tangible than anything I have ever read by Dan Brown before; in fact, Dan may sell more books but he may be about to lose his crown to a young pretender! A Yearning for Jacob's Son is brilliant and a must read for all those who love the genre, and for those who just love a good thriller.
