ErA fire at the Turin cathedral and the discovery of a mutilated corpse are the latest in a disturbing series of events surrounding the mysterious cloth millions believe to be the authentic burial shroud of Jesus Christ Those who dare to investigate will be caught in the cross fire of an ancient conflict. Julia Navarro is well known journalist based in Madrid The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud is her first novel For fans of the novels of Dan Brown this is in much the same vein The novel opens with a fire and the death of a tongue less and fingerprint less man in the Turin Cathedral the repository of the famous Shroud of Turin The head of the Arts Crimes Division of the Italian police Marco Valoni suspects there is to a mere fire as two years earlier a thief also tongue less and fingerprint less was caught fleeing the cathedral He begins an extensive investigation with his agents that causes severe conseuencesThe novel although actually telling the story of the Shroud of Turin follows two tracks The first is a proposed history of the Shroud while the second follows the modern investigation and the furor that investigation stirs up As with many of these types of novels conspiracies abound In this case there are two major groups of conspirators The first is a sect of Christians from the Turkish city of Urfa This was a Christian community shortly after Jesus s death In fact the Shroud came there then known as Edessa to heal its king The history moves through the centuries as the Shroud is eventually taken to Constantinople and sold to the Knights Templar and moved to France This sect of Christians from Urfa has spent centuries trying to steal the Shroud back and return it to Urfa The second group is the Templars themselves They are still in the world although carefully hidden The Templars are trying to make sure that the Shroud does not return to Urfa Both groups are treated as though they are able to penetrate any resistance and often know what the other is doing the Templars so than the group from Urfa In fact the Templars are portrayed as almost god like in their power and wealthThe actual Shroud of Turin has been tested by scientific committees many times to determine authenticity In the late 1980s the Catholic Church allowed several small pieces of the Shroud to be taken for Carbon 14 testing This testing revealed that the Shroud dated from the 1300s Ms Navarro offers in her novel an explanation for this discrepancyWith chapters of history mixed with the convolutions and conspiracies of the modern investigation the novel is a fun and fast paced read that leads to an explosive climax And yet that climax doesn t explain it all I didn t find it uite as gripping as Dan Brown s books but it was still nevertheless uite good and hard to put down If one has an interest in the Shroud of Turin enjoys conspiracy thrillers or even religious thrillers one cannot go wrong with The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud I ll be curious to see what Navarro next novel The Bible of Clay is about

    Yet another Spanish romp is Julia Navarro's The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud Just when you thought you were safe from the Knights Templar here they return as heroic in fiction as they have been derided in history This is yet another silly historical thriller joining the Dan Brown wagon If it's not Dante whose books provide clues to modern crimes it's the bloody Templars and their rituals Surely there's enough history in Europe
