Publisher's Summary

Miranda Lovelady, Dr. Bill Brockton's protégé, is spending the summer helping excavate a newly discovered chamber beneath the spectacular Palace of the Popes in Avignon, France. There she discovers a stone chest inscribed with a stunning claim: Inside lie the bones of none other than Jesus of Nazareth.
Faced with a case of unimaginable proportions, Miranda summons Brockton for help proving or refuting the claim. Both scientists are skeptical - after all, fake relics abounded during the Middle Ages - but evidence for authenticity looks strong initially, and soon grows stronger.
Brockton and Miranda link the bones to the haunting image on the Shroud of Turin, revered by millions as the burial cloth of Christ, and then a laboratory test finds the bones to be 2,000 years old. The finding triggers a deadly tug-of-war between the anthropologists, the Vatican, and a deadly zealot who hopes to use the bones to bring about the Second Coming - and trigger the end of time.
Set against an international landscape and weaving a rich tapestry of religion, history, art, and science, The Inquisitor's Key takes Jefferson Bass' work to an exciting new level of suspense.

You go a long way before a story

What disappointed you about The Inquisitor's Key?

I love Jefferson Bass and always anticipate his new books. But-this is just too long, drawn out, and frankly you begin not to care. Tom Stechschute is as always great, but the French accent is grating.

Would you recommend The Inquisitor's Key to your friends? Why or why not?

No, try one of the prior books, they are wonderful.

Have you listened to any of Tom Stechschulte’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Great, except for the French accent. Ugh.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Inquisitor's Key?

Stop going backwards and forwards.

Any additional comments?

Will await his next book.
