Présentation de l'éditeur

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 l'édition CD .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An action packed adventure of a controversial sublect 11 juillet 2015
Par Niles Jacobsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
"30 Pieces of Silver" is an action-packed thriller of a controversial nature. A real page turner, it incorporates history, geography, and religion in a book reminiscent of Dan Brown, Steve Berry, and James Rollins.

The story begins with a Christian suicide bomber at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. The bombing uncovers a cache of skeletons, and it is determined that one of them is the remains of John the Baptist. Written on the bones is a story in ancient Greek that will lead to more remains. The State Department's Anti-terrorism division sends Sergeant Vincent Brandt and his four man special ops team to the Ecuadorian jungle to extract genetic anthropologist Dr. Rebecca Monroe, who is participating in a ritual involving her being tied to a stake with a anaconda wrapped around her. She was trying to prove herself worthy in order to obtain DNA samples to test a hypothesis she had developed. Sergeant Brandt's team rescues her right before the end of the ritual, angering Dr. Monroe. She was resisting the extraction until sergeant Brandt mentioned the name of her ex-professor/lover, Dr. Archibald Lochum. Dr. Lochum is trying to find the remains of Jesus to prove his hypothesis that Jesus was not resurrected as the bible states. But a secret organization known as the Knot has been tasked with preserving the remains of thirty people who were buried with silver coins over their eyes. These thirty were supposedly in on a secret that was fabricated at the base of the cross, and the Knot was formed at the same time.

The remains found in Paris lead the team to Budapest, where more skeletons lead the team to Istanbul and finally to Rome. They were constantly harassed by the Knot, lead by the unique team of Tok and Petir. Sergeant Brandt suspects one of his team is a double agent, as the Knot seems to know his every move. Along with the action, a romance begins between sergeant Brandt and Rebecca, adding more difficulties to Brandt's mission. The climax takes place in Rome where the member of Brandt's team working for the Knot is revealed and Rebecca finds the secret the Knot had been trying to keep.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was full of action and plot twists, making it hard to put down. I do not agree with the secret revealed at the end, but the story was excellent and makes the reader think. If you enjoyed "The Da Vinci Code," you will enjoy "30 Pieces of Silver." As stated earlier, the book is highly controversial and speculates an alternate view of the main premise of Christianity. If you do not like alternate views of Christianity, then steer clear of this book.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Carolyn McCray is not Dan Brown 31 juillet 2013
Par St. James - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
When James Rolling implies in his review (quoted by Amazon) that Carolyn McCray is in league with Dan Brown he must mean that the plot and some of the characters of 30 Pieces of Silver are very similar to that of The Da Vinci Code. But that's it. You can steal Dan Brown's plots but it doesn't make you king. You can steal his characters too and it still doesn't make you king.

The trick with writing historical novels is research. You take known historical characters and fill in biographical gaps with fictional events that can pass as true for the normal reader. Same with landmarks and architecture. And the facts have to be correct. Carolyn McCray's characters are fictional so no problem there. That's more than can be said about architecture and landmarks which play a central part in the book. There she gets the facts frequently wrong as with historical facts. Many people use the internet to look at photos and check facts when reading historical fiction. I do. And here many facts are way off.

And how the fellowship of the professor bomb famous landmarks, blow up ancient buildings in the middle of central areas and shoot down airplanes over heavily guarded airports. It's all too much for me.

Sorry I can't rate you higher.

30 Pieces of Silver is an exciting and fast paced book. I had trouble putting it down so I that could find out what happened next. The writing is not superb but the story is interesting. I feel that the author needs a little more time to develop a more mature writing style. And, I think it's possible that that could happen. I haven't read any of the other books in the series yet to see if there is progression on that point.

But.....This is a controversial religious story. As a Christian, I believe what I read in the scriptures. The problem I have with this book, and many other books and movies, is that people don't seem to think that Jesus had any kind of knowledge of what his eternal purpose was. He knew exactly what he had to do and what was going to happen. As young as 12 years old he knew what his Father's business was, and what his role was to be. The idea that he and his friends felt that they had to manipulate the crucifixion and resurrection is ludicrous.

The concept that there would be writing all over the bones of any of these skeletons is strange to me. Thinking about either removing the flesh from the bones or waiting until it had rotted away is rather gross. Writing all over the dead person's bones seems like total disrespect and not in keeping with the traditions of the time.

I have to say that people who don't believe in Christianity, or are on the fence about religion in general would really like this book, if they can make it through the poor writing. Once I started the book I really wanted to get to the end, but when I did, I felt like I had wasted my time in reading it. Why do so many people feel that religion should be explained through science? Glad I didn't pay a lot of money for it and I won't be reading any of the rest of the books in the series.

I give it two stars instead of one because the story is interesting, but certainly not more because the writing is poor and, in the end, the author doesn't make the story believable.

If you're a fan of action, mystery, history, snarky comedy, and even a little love story thrown in, you'll love this book.

Seems to be thoroughly researched both historically and by location. Incredible detail without being boring of places in the world I'd like to visit.

Starts off running and never stops, this entire story takes place in less than a week! The characters are engaging and real. Not one of them is perfect, but you'll love them for their faults and strengths. Brandt is a perfect protagonist and Tok is a perfect foil. Neither is all good or all bad. Rebecca is a resourceful, intelligent woman who is dragged into a quest not of her choosing.

The religious theme you'll have to judge for yourself, but I found it fascinating. If you're a fan of Dan Brown, you won't be disappointed. I always thought there was more to the Judas story.

30 Pieces of Silver is a must read!!!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A book not to be missedd 12 octobre 2016
Par AA Westenberg - Publié sur Amazon.com

When I started to read this book I figured that it might be entertaining, but probably not as good as the da Vinci Code. Boy, was a wrong. This is a well written, fast paced book, with a credible plot. If you are not openminded enough to conceide that history of 2000 years ago might have been a bit different than the official story that was given to us, this book might not be for you. But for all of us, who don't mind a bit of conjecture on what happened all those hundreds of years ago, then this is a book not to be missed. Enjoy, I know that I did.
