    SAM Christer delivered a ripping thriller with his debut novel The Stonehenge Legacy.There s also much to like about his second novel, The Turin Shroud Secret It s a thrilling read and is very true to its genre, combining a religious mystery with lots ofaction and strong characters.And while it didn t blow my mind the way the The Stonehenge Legacy did, Christer just seemed so on top of his material for that book it s still superior to most conspiracy thrillers.In The Stonehenge Legacy, Christ SAM Christer delivered a ripping thriller with his debut novel The Stonehenge Legacy.There s also much to like about his second novel, The Turin Shroud Secret It s a thrilling read and is very true to its genre, combining a religious mystery with lots ofaction and strong characters.And while it didn t blow my mind the way the The Stonehenge Legacy did, Christer just seemed so on top of his material for that book it s still superior to most conspiracy thrillers.In The Stonehenge Legacy, Christer introduced us to archaeologist Gideon Chase.In The Turin Shroud Secret, the author tackles not only a different theme but also presents us withdetectives, Mitzi Fallon and Nic Karakandez.They re appealing and the reader is drawn to them at once Nic is still scarred by the loss ofhis family and Mitzi, tough cop though she is, has put up with her husband abusing her for years.Nic and Mitzi come into the story when a Hollywood screen writer becomes the latest victimof a fanatical serial killer called The Creeper.Christer s writing in these chapters about The Creeper is particularly compelling and exciting, especially as he writes in present tense, which, as it did in The Stonehenge Legacy, brings immediacy and a relentless pace to the story.As Karakandez and Fallon investigate the latest Creeper murder, they soon discover the dead writer had been working on a screenplay involving the Shroud of Turin.This twist takes Nic to Turin in Italy and into the mystery of the Shroud and its history and hereChrister s writing, as Nic battles corrupt police and tries to elude a killer through Italy, France andSwitzerland, is breathtaking.Overall, Christer has delivered athan worthy follow to the wonderful The StonehengeLegacy.If you re a fan of religious conspiracy thrillers and Dan Brown certainly ignited this field The Turn Shroud Secret is fast paced and fascinating.The strands felt a little unlinked at times, but that s easy to overlook given the many otherstrengths

    I loved all the twists and turns in this book There s plenty of action, murder and intrigue.The Turin Shroud has, for a long time, held a fascination for many people the world over Many Christians especially Roman Catholics believe its authenticity of being the final piece of cloth to cover the body of the crucified Jesus Then there are the detractors, who say the shroud has been faked to show the final image of the crucified Son of God and that the shroud dates back only as far as the Midd I loved all the twists and turns in this book There s plenty of action, murder and intrigue.The Turin Shroud has, for a long time, held a fascination for many people the world over Many Christians especially Roman Catholics believe its authenticity of being the final piece of cloth to cover the body of the crucified Jesus Then there are the detractors, who say the shroud has been faked to show the final image of the crucified Son of God and that the shroud dates back only as far as the Middle Ages.In this novel, a Hollywood screenwriter is killed before she can release the final scene of a blockbuster film of a film about Turin s Shroud Her death is investigated by LA murder detectives both in the States and in Turin In Turin, Nic Karakandez is stonewalled by the local carabinieri, the local priest and seemingly by the scientists who have underhandedly tested a part of the shroud Mitzi Fallon, who investigates the screenwriter s death alongside another case involving a serial killer, works back home in America Both detectives are frustrated by the lack of cooperation, and Mitzi also has to cope with a husband who enjoys beating her and trying to bring up their twin daughters.Eventually, the both murder investigations culminate in rather surprising ways There are a lot of memorable characters in this book, not all of them likeable, but all of them have left their impression on me, just as the image of a dead man left its mark on an old burial shroud
