Peters hooks us with interlocking storylines of a high-level governmental murder, papal intrigue, a persecuted religious group, and ex-Jesuit Nicolas Branson's conflicted relationships with two women. The author slowly ratchets up the tension as Branson and Jessica Jones (a Cathar and religious expert in her own right) criss-cross the globe and banter their way into solving a Biblical mystery and saving the John-the-Baptist-worshiping Mandaeans from extinction.
The intrigue of he book lies in the juxtaposition of good and evil. And when Peters hurdles us into the mind-boggling denouement, we're left questioning everything we've ever been fed about our governmental and religious institutions.
A tantalizing mix of well-researched fact and fiction, KILLING JOHN THE BAPTIST is a provocative, taut, well-written thriller that leaves the reader reeling with questions and thirsty to know more. I highly recommend this book and hope for another adrenaline shot of Nicholas Branson in the near future.
Many will find the subject matter offensive, not embracing what the author has to say. I had to keep in mind that the novel was highly fictional as it was hard to handle as far as my faith, even with the redemption at the end.
From his past thrillers, I know Peters excels at research. I looked up many of the geographic references mentioned in the novel.
Lastly, I found that the book seemed to parallel some of the present day atmosphere in the U.S. political system.
