For fans of Dan Brown's Origin and The Da Vinci Code , by the author of the award-winning, massive bestseller The Girl with All the Gifts , comes a thriller to keep you reading until dawn.

Hidden in the Dead Sea scrolls - the secret of how Christ really died

As ex-mercenary Leo Tillman and ambitious cop Heather Kennedy investigate a series of baffling deaths, the trail leads them to the Dead Sea Scrolls - and the deadly gospel hidden within them.

But soon Tillman and Kennedy are running for their lives from a band of sinister assassins who weep tears of blood and believe themselves descended from Judas. These 'fallen angels' will stop at nothing to expose the world-changing secret of the Scrolls . . . the secret of how Christ really died.

Rocketing from a spectacular plane crash in the American desert to a brutal murder at a London university to a phantom city in Mexico, The Dead Sea Deception is the most gripping, revelatory thriller since The Da Vinci Code .

I don't think the pace was as "fast" as the DaVinci Code, but it was well worth reading.
