Nick Renna, a reclusive professor of History and embittered lapsed-Catholic, bears a simmering resentment toward the God he believes abandoned him years earlier. Now, bound by a deathbed promise to the former lover who left him to become a Dominican nun, Nick must continue her search for the lost Crown of Thorns of Jesus Christ—a relic of extraordinary spiritual and physical power. Beginning at a small college campus in New Hampshire, Nick's quest takes him from the sophisticated environs of Geneva, to the Secret Vatican Archives in Rome, and eventually to the Pyrenees of northern Spain, where unspeakable evil confronts unlimited love. But as Nick gets closer to the Crown, powerful forces want this artifact for its potential power. What happens if someone puts on the Crown of Thorns?

Spirit Flight based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Very good first book from Mr. Fittante! I'm an aviation buff who loves thrillers-- and it was a thrill to get into the cockpit with Frank Farago as he put the B-2 through its paces. What I really liked was that he did not get bogged down in the "pilot techno-babble" that loses those of us who are not pilots. The lurking conspiracy added flair and drove the novel to its "wow" conclusion. Fast paced, with great characters, this is a must read for Clancy fans. Well done, and looking forward to this author's next effort!!
'Flight of the Intruder' excitement and, although fictional, it has an eerie parallel to cureent events.
A very readable, engaging book. The story has something for everyone - action, great flying sequences, technical detail, a love story and a reflection on life. Fittante's writing style puts the reader in the story from the very begininng and never lets go until the end. Hard to put down!
