Secret of the Shroud

Pamela Binnings Ewen

A powerful suspense novel written in the manner of The DaVinci Code that uses the Shroud of Turin and the extensive investigations into its authenticity to explore and illuminate God’s truth

A frightened apostle in AD 33, a tragic child in the 1950s, and a slick, twenty-first century church leader are all linked by the secret of the Shroud of Turin, the purported burial cloth of Jesus-and by something more. 

Wesley Bright, a corrupt, media-savvy clergyman, is out to destroy the Christian church of the God who abandoned him in his boyhood. Likable and entertaining, Bright keeps his motives well hidden. But as he seeks revenge, leading the church toward unknowing destruction, the mysterious Shroud of Turin stands in his way. Strange characters and clues emerge like shadows limned in mist as the most recent discoveries on the Shroud connect the pieces of a fascinating puzzle. When Wesley learns the ancient secret, he’s forced to confront a terrible choice: keep the secret—and the power, wealth, and fame he’s won over the years—or expose it . . . and lose everything.

At stake is one thing: absolute truth.

Historical Novels Review

The New Orleans Times-Picayune
