A reporter stumbles knee-deep into a major news story in Stasi’s riveting first novel. Alexandra Russo receives an assignment to cover the trial of Demiel ben Yusef, who has been accused of terrorist atrocities. Others believe he has been framed and that he is actually the resurrected Jesus Christ. As his followers clash with his opponents, Russo watches ben Yusef walk to the courtroom. Before he enters the building, though, he stops to give her a kiss. She’s suddenly in the headlines. Why out of the thousands in the crowd was she chosen? As she struggles for answers, Alexandra quickly learns that her life is in danger. Stasi does an amazing job of mixing science with religious paranoia in this compelling thriller. The question of ben Yusef’s divinity propels the narrative to an amazing conclusion, though there is a clear setting-up for a sequel. Dan Brown and Steve Berry fans have another controversial novel in which to lose themselves. --Jeff Ayers --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The trial of an accused terrorist who spoke only of peace was deeply familiar. Yet, don't think that this book is preachy! Not so! Sometimes, it is quite irreverant! But I would have put it down had it not been. But still, I came away in the end, feeling that I had taken a spiritual journey; Not, a religious one.
And the humor that Ms Stasi peppers her tale with is so hysterical at times that I found myself laughing out loud.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves an exciting, murder/conspiracy story. But I just as strongly recommend it to open minded seekers of whatever they consider the truth to be. I learned so much about the Middle East and religions that I didn't even know existed. I will read this again and again.
