Sign of the Cross by Chris Kuzneski

The first victim is abducted in Italy then crucified over a thousand miles away. The next day, the same crime is repeated--this time in Asia and Africa. Three different continents but one brutal pattern: someone is reenacting the execution of Christ. While visiting Spain, Jonathon Payne and David Jones are arrested for crimes they committed during their military careers. Fortunately, the CIA brokers a deal on their behalf: all charges will be dropped if they help catch Dr. Charles Boyd, a master thief who has stolen some of the finest treasures in Europe. With little choice, the duo begins their pursuit, only to realize that Boyd is more than a criminal. He is one of the world's top experts on Ancient Rome and is close to making a discovery that threatens to rewrite the basic foundations of Christianity (from the publisher).
Not another one... Christianity is threatened again in this book, with a family secret that goes back 2000 years and is just itching to be revealed. There are numerous twists along the way (just wait until you read the final pages in particular, I best say no more), and while there are quite a few characters to keep track of, the story unfolds quite well. More enjoyable than I was expecting.
Rating - I give this 3.5/5 Not bad!
Get this from the library
