Ient conflict forged by mortal sacrifice assassination and secret societies tied to the shadowy Knights TemplarSpanning centuries and continents from the storm rent skies over Calvary through the intrigue and treachery of Byzantium and the Crusades to the modern day citadels of Istanbul New York London Paris and Rome. 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 without having to dream up a fresh conspiracy Arturo Perez Reverte did very well in the genre see his The Flanders Panel eg but his successors are unimaginative This book is particularly bad The Shroud of Turin widely accepted to be a medieval fraud still commands considerable reverence among Catholics What is its history Well you won t learn it from this novel Instead Navarro posits yet another secret organisation based in Edessa modern day Urfa the first Christian city and trying desperately to get the shroud back A bunch of Templars are holding them off What you cry Templars Surely they died off after Philip the Fair butchered them in the 1300s Oh no They continued to lead clandestine but powerful lives in Scotland from where they guided mankind s history in the ensuing centuries The story When a part of the Turin cathedral is set ablaze and men with no fingerprints or tongues are found lying dead in the rubble the Arts Crime department of the Italian police is called to investigate Among the investigators is your usual brilliant and insanely beautiful woman who of course doesn t realise either her brilliance or her beauty She is shacked up with a plodding cop in her group much to everyone s surprise She traces the history of the Shroud meets sundry people who may or may not be Templars is particularly struck by the presence and charisma of one of them and decides that the plodding cop is not good enough for her any It says much for a historical novel when the most interesting in its story is really the most inconseuential portionThere is a conspiracy as ridiculous as you d like and despite the heroics of the Edessans they are clearly bumbling idiots who can locate their noses with less facility than they can recover the Shroud Bad juju I say

The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud is de la MOBI #242 the explosive international bestseller that mixes fact and fiction to tell the riveting story of one of the world’s most controversial relics the Holy Shroud of Turin and the desperate race to save it from those who will stop at nothing to possess its legendary. The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud by Julia Navarro is a novel woven around the history of the Shroud of Turin The protagonist is Marco Valoni Chief of the Italian Art Crimes DepartmentThe author is a Spanish journalist and this is her first novel The book starts off slow but does pick up the pace as it goes along I had the feeling Navarro tried to pack too much information and characters into the story Otherwise it was an exciting historical novel Navarro had two stories on going one in the current timeframe the other in ancient times I am not sure if some of the problems with the story had to do with the translation from Spanish to English I can not recommend this book But with a good rewrite to tighten up the story it might make a good thrillerI read this as a paperback It has 546 pages published in 2007 by Dell Publishing

    I thought about giving this book a two out of fairness but after forcing myself to finish it I simply can not bring myself to do that I don't know if this book was simply a victim of it being translated into English or if it simply was poorly written to begin with There were too many characters too many plots and nothing was fleshed out The story just sludged on for 371 pages and finally collapsed at the end wi

    One of the worst books I've ever read in my life I seriously wanted to throw this book to the bin Not only it is really bad written but the characters are flat and unlikeable and extremely annoying and the storyline is just blah Seems like a bad remake of The Da Vinci Code Couldn't care less about this stupid book How could I ever read this I still don't know

    Actuallythis is like 2 12 starsThis book is like a real bad experiment when you try to combine Da Vinci Code and the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Too many characters too many ridiculous side plots was the Sophia and Pietro deal necessary?? And for how smart Sophia was it certainly seemed it never showed up oh and I got sick of hearing about how pretty she was Same deal with Ana why on earth did she have to be
