From the Back Cover

Historians have believed for eighteen hundred years that Helen, mother of Emperor Constantine, found the True Cross and Crown of Thorns in 323 A.D.

The experts are wrong.

Ancient manuscripts unearthed in a Warsaw museum might skew the beliefs on which many of the world's leading religions are founded. The discovery in Poland sparks a quest to find a supposedly  mythical, secret Gospel and ancient Koran text believed hidden in Spain centuries ago. Two young scholars follow a path forged by King John of Poland and later by Ponce de Leon to America. The records indicate that Ponce de Leon purportedly secreted the Crown of Thorns and other valuable treasure in the New World.

There are those that wish them dead before they succeed in their quest that could ultimately change two of the world major religions and eliminate the head of the Catholic Church.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Tom Haase had a thrilling experience when he jumped out of an airplane for the first time as an Army paratrooper. He went on to spend 28 years in the U.S. Army, and retired after a distinguished career. Afterward, he flew as a commercial pilot for a regional airline.

Now, instead of flying airplanes or jumping out of them, he writes complex, fast-paced adventure novels to thrill readers.

Tom lives in Savannah, Georgia with his wife, Kate.
