Synopsis

In 1244, at the infamous fortress of Montségur, Christian Inquisitors massacred the last vestige of a heresy known as Mithraism. In todays New York City, reporter Tess Drake discovers a mysterious altar in the apartment of a friend whose charred body was discovered in a nearby park. The altar depicts a man astride a bull, plunging a knife into its neck while a dog, a scorpion, and a snake drink the blood. The meaning of that altar propels Tess on a furious hunt for the truth about what happened to her friend, a labyrinth of intrigue and danger that leads to the highest levels of power as well as to the depths of a secret cave in Spain.

Always interested in historical and mythalogical documentaries I found the combination of these and action/thriller elements of this story very entertaining and unusual in it’s conception as a novel. The religious and political “good vs evil” which also involved global environmental issues I thought was interesting and unique and the blending together of all the above elements of the story was quite clever and well thought out. I look forward to reading other novels by David Morell.
