The Second Messiah ~ Giveaway and Review

In the desert near Jerusalem, an archaeologist is murdered after he uncovers stunning evidence in a Dead Sea scroll about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. The two-thousand-year-old parchment containing enigmatic references to not one but two messiahs is stolen before it can be fully translated.

In Rome, a charismatic American priest with long-hidden secrets is elected pope, setting off widespread panic among some of the faithful who question whether he is the anti-Christ or the world’s new savior. As the conspiracy over the scroll explodes into a political and religious standoff, two people find themselves on the run, trying to stay one step ahead of unknown assassins in their search for truth.

Archaeologist Jack Cane and Israeli police inspector Lela Raul must solve the mystery of the Second Messiah and uncover the real secret behind the message of Jesus before they are permanently silenced and the scroll and its contents are forever lost to humanity.

In the latest suspense thriller from Glenn Meade, The Second Messiah, takes the readers into a dangerous journey through various countries in the Middle East searching for the stolen scrolls that may change how the world views religion from here on out, and someone will do whatever it takes to make sure that no one knows they exist. Unfortunately more than one person does, and those would be the archaeologists that discovered the scroll. They have read a portion of what it says and now know just how valuable this find is to the world. The last thing this big was the discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls.

Now Jack Cane and his team will stop at nothing until they find and recover the missing scroll while the newest pope, Celestine the Sixth, whose former name was Cardinal John Becket, is out to disclose all the hidden secrets of the Vatican and offering full disclosure of anything the church has held since the beginning of the Rome Catholic Church. However, most within the church realize how much that information could destroy the faith of the public in regards to the church. Just what is the newest popes mission by opening the church to the public?

I received this book compliments of Howard Books, a division of Simon and Schuster Publishers for my honest review and LOVED the intrigue and suspense that unravels literally right in the first chapter. It held my interest throughout and had me flipping pages so quickly just to see how this was all going to turn out. For me, those are signs of a best seller and why I am rating this one a 5 out of 5 stars.
