Overview

The First Apostle (Chris Bronson Series #1) by James Becker

An Englishwoman is found dead in a house near Rome, her neck broken. Her distraught husband enlists the help of his closest friend, policeman Chris Bronson, who discovers an ancient inscription on a slab of stone above their fireplace. It translates as ‘Here Lie the Liars.’ Pursued across Europe, Bronson and his ex-wife uncover a trail of clues that lead them back to the shadowy beginnings of Christianity; to an ancient code inscribed upon a stone; to a chalice decorated with mysterious symbols. And to a deadly conspiracy which will rock the foundations of our modern world if revealed.

I thought this book would be similar to Dan Brown. A historical fiction/mystery. In reality its 300 pages of the authors opinion that Jesus and his apostles did not exist through the voice of his characters. Then he goes on in his own voice in the authors note at the end of book continuing to share why Jesus didnt exist. Its fine not to believe in christianity, but you shouldnt be worthy of having a fiction "novel" published just to share your views. There are seperate non-fiction book sections that you could do this in. Shame on Signet for allowing this garbage novel. wont be reading any more James Becker books.

At first I thought this book was just another 'Da Vinci Code' type thriller. It's very similar in some ways, but the final outcome is much different. I couldn't bare to put the book down, and found myself reaching the last page in about 4 hours. It's very action packed, and for being fictional, it contains a lot of accurate historical information.

This book works for a train or plan trip. It reads like a book in search of an ending.

Poorly written and somewhat juvenile.

Fast action and moves along. Great plot. Lots of interesting history.

This book really had a lot of potential. I typically lose myself in books with the religious fiction flavor. This book took a decent start and ruined it with lazy writing toward the middle and end. To me, it felt almost as if the author ran out of ideas for the characters and took the easy way out by finishing the story with a supernatural solution that didn't fit the ideas I had developed for the characters earlier on.

Very well written. Keeps you guessing until the very end. If you liked "The DaVinci Code" you'll like this.

The book is a quick read, I could have done without the authors notes. I will read the authors second book out of curiousity.

Fast pace. It could have more back ground on Chris Bronson and his wife.
