An intrepid Irish journalist and ace pilot, international best-selling author Glenn Meade writes “thrillers that deliver the goods” (Booklist). Miles apart an ancient scroll is stolen before its revelations are fully translated, and an American priest with long-hidden secrets becomes pope. Now, as millions wonder if this man is the anti-Christ or the Second Messiah, historian Jack Cane and Israeli detective Lela Raul must find the missing scroll and discover the truth—before it’s too late.

If you enjoyed Da Vinci Code, or any of Dan Brown's books, you owe it to yourself to try The Second Messiah. It's a sweeping novel with global ramifications. And the plot is not nearly as facile as Mr. Brown's books. The characters are more fully developed and their actions actually make sense. And plot points are not nearly so predictable. It's a thoroughly enjoyable read/listen. Be aware, it is an 'inspirational' novel, although that wasn't quite clear to me before I purchased it. It treads very lightly in that area, though, and I doubt that anyone would find that aspect off-putting. Still, you might want to now....
Finally, George Guidall's read is exceptional. I've been listening to audiobooks for 20+ years, and this is one of the best performances I've ever heard.
The end was horrible. And endless preaching speech by a would be pope/messiah.
Too bad really because 3/4 of the book were really, really good. It was a huge let down.
A chance George Guidall was narrating -one of the best narrators there is on Audible - or I would have stopped when the Jesus preaching began.
