UNHOLY GRAIL: A NOVEL

D. L. WILSON

Contemporary/Historical Fiction


April 2007

Berkley
ISBN: 9780425214787

 

"If actual proof of a bloodline of Christ exists, what'll it do to the Church?"

Brittany Hamar and Father Joseph Romano receive a mysterious call to be at Grand Central Station in New York at a particular time on a specific date. The two Biblical scholars arrive on time, and chaos erupts! One is shot and the other is intrigued by the box with a gun that offers no substantial clue to the calller or attacker.

Thus begins a riveting drama in which priests will die in America and Spain while a secret society fears the revelation that could undo their centuries-old connection to the holy Grail and the ongoing lineage of Jesus Christ! Those who live decide that Hamar and Romano must die.

Rather than just presenting a criminal drama, D. L. Wilson through the main and minor character probes and explores the facts from fiction evident in canonical and Apocryphal scriptures, scholarly studies, and Christian theology from the point of view of major and minor Christian denominations. All of this is accomplished in a fascinating story that makes the reader think, ask questions, and realize that what seems so obvious and newly revealed can be so different from the reality. Nothing is simple and all is relative to fact and yes, fiction!

Uniquely presented and layered with a racing plot, D. L. Wilson's Unholy Grail will fascinate any reader interested in the sacred and profane!
