Publisher: Ambassador International
Release Date: March 31, 2018
Genre: Inspirational Suspense/Thriller
The Shroud of Turin is the most studied and controversial religious relic in human history.
The ancient linen cloth bears the image of a man, alleged to be that of Jesus of Nazareth. What if it were real? What if it contained a secret powerful enough to alter the course of human history? And what if it fell into the wrong hands?
Manny Lusum is convinced the Shroud is the genuine article and obsessed with proving it scientifically. Grace Barden is not only Manny’s best friend, but also secretly in love with the physics student and soon-to-be Catholic priest. Across the globe, three grisly murders and the theft of a secret manuscript thrust Grace and Manny into a generations-old conspiracy of biblical proportions. From New York to Rome to the inner sanctum of the Vatican, they struggle to untangle a bizarre mystery surrounding the controversial artifact.
In a dramatic confrontation between faith and the ultimate evil on the world stage, Grace and Manny are pushed to the edge of an abyss, balanced on the brink between heaven and hell.
This suspenseful and captivating thriller is perfect for fans of Dan Brown, John Grisham, Robert Ludlum, and David Baldacci. Order your copy today and experience a unique blend of history, science, conscience, religion and a battle of good versus evil that will keep you reading into the early morning hours!
“ . . . a wonderfully engaging, page-turning thriller.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jim is a long-time resident of Chesterfield, Missouri…“The City of Sculptures”. He is a graduate of the University of Missouri in Columbia and now spends his time crafting novels of suspense that tackle the complex relationship between science and religion, stories designed to take the reader places he or she may not have previously considered.
She frowned at her empty travel mug. The flowering pink dogwoods probably hated the cold morning as much as she did. She just wanted to sleep for a day . . . or maybe a month. To click her heels together three times and return to Kansas. She shoved the mug into her coat pocket.
Keep moving. She had to keep moving.
As she crossed the street, a strong wind gusted light snow against the dogwood petals, spawning an enormous pink wave down Central Park South. Half a block ahead, a lone figure sat atop the stone steps leading into St. William Catholic Church. His green hoodie poked out from underneath a heavy black coat, and his breath plumed up as fog. Soon, recognizable facial features emerged as he lowered the cell phone. Manny’s clothes looked disheveled, but he smiled at her in spite of the dark circles rimming his eyes.
Grace forced herself to return his smile as a rush of warmth pushed back the pervasive cold.
“Morning,” she said.
“Yes it is.” Manny looked her over carefully. “You okay?”
“Yeah, I’m fine.” She eased down onto the cold steps next to him. “Who was that?”
“Becka. She’s worried about you.”
Grace shook her head. Too many people, too many worries. “You couldn’t go back to sleep either?”
After her mother’s call, Grace had stood in her apartment’s shower until the hot water had turned cold. But she hadn’t wanted to risk her bed—or sleep—again. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have woken you so early. It could have waited.”
“Relax, Gracie, it’s no big deal. I don’t sleep much anyway.”
Her eyes blurred as he moved closer to comfort her. “Nervous?”
“That’s a complicated question.”
