Could a dusty old relic lead to a discovery so volatile, that men would kill to keep it a secret?

Matthew Harkin is a skeptical young reporter living in the shadow of his father, the famous Buddy Harkin, recently assassinated by terrorists while the world watched. He’s finally ready for his life to move forward, but when he begins to date Daniela Portonova, an archaeology professor, he has no idea of the trouble she – and now, he – is in.

He uncovers a twisting plot that finally leads to the most revered relic in the world – The Shroud of Turin, the famed burial cloth of Jesus himself. It’s missing, and the race to recover it puts Matthew in the middle of a brutal struggle for power and control – between one group who wants to use the shroud to expose the Church for its lies…and another who will silence anyone in their way. Caught in the middle, Matthew finds everything he thought he believed crumbling beneath him.

“Move over, The DaVinci Code, Jerel Law’s novel takes ancient secrets and modern intrigue to a new level. If you’ve ever wondered what’s really going on with The Shroud of Turin, cancel your appointments and grab a copy of The Shroud. From the opening scene to the final twist, it won’t let you go.” –Robert Whitlow, best-selling author of The Confession
