James Becker’s pulse-pounding debut thriller, The First Apostle, made critics and genre fans alike stand up and take notice. An equally taut sequel, The Messiah Secret follows a young woman and her ex-husband as they seek to solve one of history’s greatest mysteries. On assignment at a lavish English mansion, museum conservator Angela Lewis makes a shocking discovery. Buried in an ancient clay jar is a parchment - a document detailing the life and times of Jesus. This miracle-find also describes the Messiah’s final resting place. Enlisting the aid of her ex-husband Chris, Angela sets off on an international quest to discover the tomb’s true contents. But their journey is made all the more dangerous by a power-mad priest and a greedy industrialist. From the quiet English countryside to the bone-chilling cold of the Himalayas, this globetrotting adventure will hold listeners in rapt attention till the very end. Narrator Graeme Malcolm doesn’t miss a beat delivering a pitch-perfect reading of Becker’s riveting prose.
