What a wild ride! THE MESSIAH MATRIX is akin to Dan Brown’s THE DEVINCI CODE and ANGELS AND DEMONS. The author is a professor of literature and classics, and has written papers on Greek, Roman and Italian literature. Don’t let any of that throw you off. This man can write a thriller that makes you sit up and take notice.
The main characters, Father Ryan McKeown, and archeologist Emily Scelba, are on the hunt for the truth about the death of Monsignor Oscar Isaac, and for a rare coin which may or may not be connected to the man’s death. Finding the coin could make Emily’s career soar. Finding the killer could keep Ryan from being the next target.
The story is told from several different points of view, and in several different eras of church history, as well as the history of Father Ryan and Emily. I really enjoyed this book. It’s great for mystery buffs, lovers of church history, and readers of suspense and thriller fiction.
