Publisher's Summary

An Englishwoman is found dead in a house near Rome.
Her distraught husband enlists the help of his closest friend, Chris Bronson, who discovers an ancient inscription on a slab of stone above their fireplace. It translates as ‘Here Lie the Liars.’
But who are the liars? And what is it they are lying to protect?
Pursued across Europe, Bronson uncovers a trail of clues that leads him back to the shadowy beginnings of Christianity; to a chalice decorated with mysterious symbols; to a secret code hidden within a scroll. And to a deadly conspiracy which – if revealed – will rock the foundations of our modern world.

The First Apostle

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Only if they were a Dan Brown fan.

What three words best describe Philip Franks’s voice?

Good story-teller's voice.

Do you think The First Apostle needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. I think the story is succinct as it is.

Any additional comments?

I think at times the plot and research got in the way of the story.

disappointing

The idea and research behind the book (story inside the story) was very interesting and could have been the background of a great book, Umberto Eco style, but instead this ends up being a teenage novel rather naive in style and content, most of the substance being obvious and predictable, as if written in a hurry as a pretext to present a theological theory. Disappointed.
