Quatrième de couverture
Fresh from her successful hunt for the long-hidden scrolls written by Mary Magdalene, journalist Maureen Pascal receives a strange package in the mail, containing what looks to be an ancient document written in Latin and signed in code. Written by an extraordinary woman who history has overlooked - or covered up, it demands the return of the countess's 'most precious books and documents'. Soon, Maureen finds herself in a race across Italy and France, where new dangers await her and her lover Sinclair as they begin to uncover secrets and shine new light on the hidden corners of Christianity.
As Maureen learns more about Matilda, a warrior countess who was secretly married to a Pope who joined her, not only in her bed, but also in using the Lost Gospel of Jesus to form a radical new kind of church, she begins to see the eerie connections between herself and Matilda, connections she must unravel quickly if she is to stop the wrong people from finding The Book of Love and hiding it forever.
Combining expert research with dazzling plot twists, The Book of Love is sure to thrill readers as they follow Maureen's search for clues through the world's greatest art, architecture, and history, until a potentially fatal encounter reveals The Book of Love to her - and to us.
