La hermandad de la sábana santa

The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud is the explosive international bestseller that mixes fact and fiction to tell the riveting story of one of the world’s most controversial relics the Holy Shroud of Turin and the desperate race to save it from those who will stop at nothing to possess its legendary pow. The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud by Julia Navarro is a novel woven around the history of the Shroud of Turin The protagonist is Marco Valoni Chief of the Italian Art Crimes DepartmentThe author is a Spanish journalist and this is her first novel The book starts off slow but does pick up the pace as it goes along I had the feeling Navarro tried to pack too much information and characters into the story Otherwise it was an exciting historical novel Navarro had two stories on going one in the current timeframe the other in ancient times I am not sure if some of the problems with the story had to do with the translation from Spanish to English I can not recommend this book But with a good rewrite to tighten up the story it might make a good thrillerI read this as a paperback It has 546 pages published in 2007 by Dell Publishing

Forged by mortal sacrifice assassination and secret societies tied to the shadowy Knights TemplarSpanning centuries and continents from the storm rent skies over Calvary through the intrigue and treachery of Byzantium and the Crusades to the modern day citadels of Istanbul New York London Paris and Rome. One of the worst books I ve ever read in my life I seriously wanted to throw this book to the bin Not only it is really bad written but the characters are flat and unlikeable and extremely annoying and the storyline is just blah Seems like a bad remake of The Da Vinci Code Couldn t care less about this stupid book How could I ever read this I still don t know

    I thought about giving this book a two out of fairness but after forcing myself to finish it I simply can not bring myself to do that I don't know if this book was simply a victim of it being translated into English or if it simply was poorly written to begin with There were too many characters too many plots and nothing was fleshed out The story just sludged on for 371 pages and finally collapsed at the end without any real ending This fel

    This book is fantastic While the beginning starts off a bit slow once you get into the story a bit the pace picks up and the story really gets moving This book is based in two different time lines One is the modern time with the police investigating a fire in the city of Turin The other is the time following the crucifixion of Jesus The Shroud of Turin is the piece that ties the two time lines together as the f
