A journalist, Alex, and his diplomat pal, Aubrey, try to figure out the whereabouts of the 'Secret Gospel' in modern day Egypt - an alternate and controversial telling of the life of Jesus by one of his disciples.
All the while they are tailed by an American Christian cult - desperate to validate it, the Mossad who want to exploit it and an inept Middle Eastern based group that also want it for their own purposes. The search intensifies when Alex's girlfriend is apparently killed (or gone missing) in connection with his search.
I found the characters were somewhat cliche, the plot a little bumpy but predictable and some of the asides (explaining the gospels) a little long winded. It felt like an old time B movie thriller that you would likely be fine watching at home on a rainy Saturday if nothing else was on, but would not have wanted to shell out money to see at your local cinema.
The voice narration was competent on this relatively average thriller. Recommended for those who like light thrillers and do not want complicated characters or plots.
