Editorial Reviews


...well-written with solid characterization, a credible and compelling plot, and a good pace...I highly recommend this book. -- Kevin Aguanno, TCM Reviews

From the Publisher

In his provocative new novel, The Papyrus Document, author Michael Cole dares to explore a highly controversial theme: the Marium-Jesus Theory, which postulates Jesus survived the crucifixion, traveled to India, and lived to a ripe old age.

A visibly shaken Pakistani archeologist leaves a set of biblical passages and a safe-deposit key with Natalie Rowe, a forensics pathologist, and confides in her that he's stumbled upon an ancient document which will shed light on a major Christian premise.

When he is murdered, Natalie and Mushtaq, his son, work feverishly to decipher the code in the biblical passages in an effort to locate the safe-deposit box and the mysterious document contained therein. Their search leads them to a sacred Muslim shrine in the Indian-occupied portion of Kashmir. An astounding discovery provides evidence that Jesus' remains are interred in the shrine. Had Jesus survived the Crucifixion?

The dramatic climax will leave you reeling.

More About the Author

As a young boy, I was fascinated with the unknown, the mysterious, and also the unworldly. Ever since I can remember, I enjoyed reading books about archeology. To be the first to enter a crypt, or a tomb that no one had set foot in for three thousand years held a fascination for me. I always wondered what it would be like to encounter an intelligent being from another world. What secrets could he tell? What mysteries could he solve? Such is my imagination, such is my passion.

Since I've never had an opportunity to experience any of those things, I dreamt a lot. The most logical step was to write, but that took years in the making. I soon discovered that in order to hold a reader's interest, a book had to be more than just a good story. Finally, I managed to write on my own.

To date, all twelve of my novels contain quest plots. My characters are always searching for "something." They also manage to get themselves into a lot of trouble before they find what they're looking for. What they find isn't nearly as important as the change that occurs within them during the quest.

My grandparents were Russian. During the Bolshevik Revolution they fled to China, where my mother was born. I came to America from France at the age of twelve and immediately traded in my French-version of Lederhosen for a pair of jeans. After earning B.A. and M.A. degrees, I wore a number of different career hats, but none of them ever stirred my soul--until I took up writing.

I now live in Laguna Niguel, California, with my wife, Sharon.

Format: Paperback
Michael Cole has written a thought-provoking second novel which is a worthy read for anyone who likes action and adventure about some controversial theories and speculations about Christ's post crucifixion. The story is clear, focused and the characters are intriguing. Mr. Cole's ending is plausible. I would of preferred a more controversial ending. But perhaps the perceived reaction of the Middle East and Christian worlds weight heavily on the author's mind.

Not only is this book highly entertaining, it was also, for me at least, very educational. I never knew there was controversy regarding whether Christ died on the cross. Imagine the religious turmoil if it were proved he didn't die but lived a long life. Dr. Natalie Rowe, a mild-mannered (think Clark Kent) researcher at the Smithsonian is drawn into the mystery by an aged scholar and embarks on a rollercoaster ride from Washington DC to Kashmir. There are terrorists, there are explosions, there are shootouts, and of course there is love. What more could anyone ask for in novel entertainment.
