THRILLER REVIEW: The Turin Shroud Secret - Sam Christer

Release Date: 23/02/12


It is the most controversial religious icon in the world. No one knows where it came from. No one knows when it was made. But now, the greatest mystery in religious history holds the key to a present-day serial killer who devises savage, bizarre deaths for his victims. And only two American cops, following a trail that stretches from California to the Vatican, can expose the secret of the Shroud. From internationally bestselling author Sam Christer, published in 35 languages around the world, comes a thriller packed with relentless action, shocking twists and astounding research - the most suspenseful and intelligent novel of its kind since The Da Vinci Code.


Having enjoyed Sam’s debut (The Stonehenge Conspiracy) I was eager to see what he’d hit back with in his second story as to be honest its usually this one that can make or break an author. What arrived was a tale that brought religious conspiracy with some decent twists and of course a pace that doesn’t let up from the get go. Add to this an author who has a good understanding of prose and knows what a reader wants and all in it was a decent release.

Finally add to the mix a story that is wonderfully told with some reasonable research conducted and all in it was a title that I had a lot of fun with.
