Description de l'ouvrage

30 Pieces of Silver... Did you know James Rollins recommends, 30 Pieces of Silver, the #1 Kindle Bestseller in Men's Adventure, Techno-thriller & War genres? ***Warning*** Before you purchase this book please be aware that 30 Pieces of Silver is an extremely controversial religious/historical thriller. Too controversial to be published in hardback. Please do NOT purchase this book if you were at all disturbed by the DaVinci Code or The Passion of Christ's revelations. However if you like your fiction to challenge historical events, read on... Praise for 30 Pieces of Silver "Carolyn McCray's 30 PIECES OF SILVER proves that Dan Brown's crown is up for grabs. Part minefield and all roller-coaster ride, here is a story as controversial as it is thriller. Hunker down for a long night because once you start this book you won't be putting it down." James Rollins, NY Times bestseller of Bloodline Other 5 out of 5 star reviews... "The author manages to weave the fine lines of historical fact, architectural beauty, centuries of folklore, the pain of historical catastrophes and her own incredibly clever fictional thoughts, all into one great carpet of multicoloured fibres." Cheyl M-M Amazon Reviewer "This was one of the best books I have ever read! She intertwined past and present with such ease. The historical figures come to life. This book makes you totally rethink what you have always been taught about the death of Christ. I can't wait to read the rest of her work if this is any indication of how great a writer she is." Linda Butterfield Amazon Reviewer Overview of 30 PIECES OF SILVER... A Christian suicide bomber. John the Baptist's bones inscribed in ancient Greek. A dark secret carried from the foot of the crucifixion. Can science solve the world's greatest mystery? More praise... "From the opening explosion at the base of the Eiffel Tower uncovering a trove of skeletons to the final scenes throughout Italy, the story involves a search for the remains of Jesus. Rebecca Monroe is "saved" from the clutches of a snake by Sgt. Brandt and his special ops team deep in the Ecuadorian jungle... This begins a roller coaster ride that is intertwined with an equally interesting tale of Jesus and Judas and their travels and trials."

Biographie de l'auteur

Born in San Francisco, Carolyn McCray grew up in Napa Valley, California. A natural-born storyteller, she used to “direct” the other kids from her neighborhood in recorded readings of Nancy Drew mysteries. A lifelong animal lover whose first word was “rhinoceros,” she managed to fulfill her twin passions by growing up to become a veterinarian and a writer. She is the author of works as diverse as Pups in Tea Cups: Tales of “Littleness” Overcoming BIG Odds to 30 Pieces of Silver, an extremely controversial historical thriller.

Pretty much if Carolyn reads a genre, she writes a genre. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Thrilling, Brave, and Controversial 14 juillet 2011
Par Heather BookSavvyBabe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
30 Pieces of Silver is a very controversial religious thriller. The style is a bit similar to the DaVinci code in that the characters are on the search for controversial religious relics, and a secret society does not want the relics found. That's it for the similarities though. 30 Pieces of Silver is very much it's own story. The premise in 30 Pieces of Silver is forensic archeology natured, and definitely unique. The novel blends a touch of romance, action adventure, and dangerous situations together.

30 Pieces of silver is a compelling, brave, controversial novel that will leave readers contemplating possibilities long after the story has been read.

This review is not an easy one to write, as the book is highly controversial, my thoughts are a bit mixed. As I said earlier, 30 Pieces of Silver is a religious thriller. The characters are all in search of a discovery that could drastically change modern Christianity. I myself was raised with a very conservative Christian upbringing, and, while still Christian, I am now more progressive and have a pretty open-mind (I loved DaVinci code and had no problem with the religious implications at all). However, the assertions in 30 Pieces of Silver are very shocking and so outrageous that my comfort level was tested and pushed. In the end, whether I just did not believe the assertions or they were just too much for me, my impressions of the book were affected.

I loved the thrilling action and the depth created between the characters and their motivations, but the controversial religious assertions were a bit too controversial for my personal tastes. Even so, I still find myself thinking over the book and the assertions, definitely a thought provoking story. I must commend the author for creating such a memorable, standout novel.

Who would like this book: Readers who enjoy controversial or religious thrillers will enjoy this novel. 30 Pieces of Silver is thought provoking and exciting, a good read.

Who would not like this book: Readers who hold and value traditional Christian beliefs, or conservative readers will most likely not enjoy this novel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Read Thriller! 16 janvier 2011
Par mrneil98 - Publié sur Amazon.com

Wow! I am so impressed when a (relatively) new author creates such a compelling, exciting and potentially controversial novel. The action is non-stop, the locations are intriguing and the characters are appealing. There is tension, romance, harrowing escape after harrowing escape all weaved within a story that captures your interest and keeps you guessing until the very end when you are floored by a surprise hook followed by an even more unexpected uppercut of an ending.
From the opening explosion at the base of the Eiffel Tower uncovering a trove of skeletons to the final scenes throughout Italy, the story involves a search for the remains of Jesus. Rebecca Monroe is "saved" from the clutches of a snake by Sgt. Brandt and his special ops team deep in the Ecuadorian jungle and directed on a mission to aid her former professor/mentor/lover Dr. Lochum. This begins a rollercoaster ride that is intertwined with an equally interesting tale of Jesus and Judas and their travels and trials.
The characters are likeable and believable while not being stereotypical of the genre. Sgt. Brandt is a macho, military type but also a devout Catholic very knowledgeable in Bible history while Dr. Monroe is attractive, intelligent and handles herself well under pressure. The adversaries are a shady organization known as The Knot, with an intriguing pair Tok and Petir as emissaries. The pair are more than the sum of their parts as you will realize as you read the story.
There is a blossoming romance between Brandt and Monroe that is interrupted by Dr. Lochum. Although their attraction may be predictable there many detours along the way that keep the reader unsure of their fate, The secondary characters are developed in a way that makes them not only more important to the story but more interesting to the reader.
Thirty Pieces of Silver blends action, science, romance, history, and geography all into a fascinating thriller reminiscent of James Rollins, Steve Berry or Dan Brown. It has everything any reader would want and, perhaps the best thing is, there is already a follow-up on the way continuing the exploits of Monroe, Brandt, Lopez and the rest.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wow, this novel was great! 16 février 2011

I really had a blast reading this novel! The romance was wonderful, not too over the top and the writing was superb! Don't let the fact that this is an Indie book scare you, please. It was well fleshed and better than a lot of A list authors whose work is at the big publishing houses.

I don't know how to classify this novel, it was mystery, thriller, romance, all interwoven and it was so good. If some novels feel like cotton candy, this was steak and potatoes!

I will say, however, if you are a die hard Christian (like I am) you have to keep reminding yourself this is FICTION. The writing was top notch and I look forward to the coming sequel, Havoc. Hopefully Ms. McCray won't be too long...

1.0 étoiles sur 5 What Hype....don't bother reading 14 mars 2012
Par Cecil Zee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The controversial part of this book is how it got published, I read the first part for free on my kindle and then was asked if I'd like to buy it. It was pretty interesting up to then, so I bought it. Boy, did it go down hill. The typos and words missing increased (who proofs this stuff). The plot was not developed and the action scenes were totally improbable.....they kept getting more and more rediculous as the book went on. The ending was bizare as nothing was developed to support the conclusion; little or no groundwork was laid for the conclusion. Plus, the DNA testing for a 'super gene' never went any where. I have this book on kindle....I will put it up for loan and you can keep it!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't Bother 17 avril 2012
Par Avid Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This poorly written novel is riddled with annoying errors in grammar and syntax, missing words, and misused words that should have been caught by Word. At one point the author states that a woman is "sucking her child;" I presume the author meant "suckling." If there was an editor, he was remiss.

The plot is a riff on the Da Vinci Code, but there is no research that makes it the slightest bit historical. The author even places a disciple named Paul among the original twelve of Jesus' disciples prior to the crucifixion.
I can suspend belief and enjoy a good story, but this one was just stupid.
