9780099498476: The Magdalene Cipher

This is a stunning international thriller of psychology and conspiracy, espionage and prophecy, history and suspense. After someone he has under surveillance is slaughtered - literally - CIA agent Jack Dunphy is ordered to leave London immediately and return to the US, where he is dumped into a tedious desk job that seems calculated to make him quit. Determined to learn why, Dunphy uses all his CIA tradecraft on the agency that has turned against him - and discovers the fragments of a story that seems too wild to be true, providing him with evidence of a conspiracy that goes back to the time of Christ, a conspiracy so vast and deep and old that the CIA itself is but a cover for it. Embroiled in a plot far more elaborate than he ever could have imagined, with players too powerful and consequences too deadly, Dunphy must uncover the shocking truth - or die trying...

About the Author:

Jim Hougan has won awards for his investigative journalism. He is the author of three nonfiction books: Decadence, a philosophical investigation of the 1960's counter-culture; Spooks, about American Intelligence community, and Secret Agenda, a revisionist look at the Watergate Affair. With his wife Carolyn, he has written six thrillers under the pseudonym John Case, including the international bestseller The Genesis Code and, most recently, The Murder Artist and Dance of Death. He and his wife live near Charlottesville, Virginia.

Review:

"'John Case's sure hand and deep understanding of the visceral terrors of the situation... a convincing thriller which grips the heart and gut with equal force' Guardian * 'Deep in Harlen Coben territory... Scary, compulsive stuff.' Independent on Sunday 'A sizzling thriller... well-written and extremely gripping' Daily Mail * 'Cracks along... more than enough murder, mayhem and scientific mystery to keep the reader entertained' Sunday Telegraph"
