The Book of Q will prove to be amongst the best historical thrillers of the year.
After the mysterious death of one Vatican priest and the disappearance of another, Father Ian Pearse, an American working on early Christian texts in the Vatican, comes into possession of a mysterious scroll. He discovers the ingeniously coded letters and the text of an ancient prayer never before found in written form.
These reveal a conspiracy, by a sect long-thought dead, reaching deep into the present Vatican hierachy.
It becomes a race against a ruthless unknown opponent, which takes Father Pearse from the Vatican, via an ancient Greek monastery, to war-torn Bosnia.
