Betrayal has never been so deadly
A Cambridge don is dead, his student stands accused of the murder. The boy’s father turns to his old friend, Professor Daniel Huxley for help. The only clue is an obscure fragment of parchment belonging to the Gospel of Judas Iscariot.
As Huxley and brilliant linguist, Samantha Davison, begin to investigate the link, they are astonished to find a trail that leads to the very depths of the Vatican – a trail strewn with the untimely deaths of any who have tried to follow it and that could expose the greatest lie ever perpetrated by the Church.
It takes them on a frenzied chase through the streets of Cambridge. The renowned, historical city is transformed into a sinister, threatening stage where Vatican secrets and buried revelations lead them to a truth so powerful and damaging that some will stop at nothing to protect it.
