The Assignment

Jump Aboard This Spiritual-Conspiracy Thrill-ride

For two thousand years he has wandered the shadows of humanity's blood-stained history, secretly carrying out an ancient mission. Haunted by grief, longing for heaven yet denied it by the mystery and power
of the unforgettable mandate given him, he once again appears...

Near the ruins of Auschwitz, members of a covert monastic order unearth one of the world's most astonishing discoveries. Their find sets off a fierce international manhunt that soon embroils the CIA, the Israeli Mossad, Hamas terrorists, and renegade factions of the Vatican. The secret at the core of the global intrigue is the identity of this one extraordinary man who now walks twenty-first century Earth on a momentous assignment. An identity no one can believe, yet whose existence no one can deny.

Follow a disillusioned young priest, a terrified graduate student, and a spiritually fascinating man--from the shores of Normandy to the hills of Ireland, from the alleyways of Paris, Rome, and Jerusalem, to the halls of time itself--in a suspenseful thriller that combines the supernatural with unrelenting action, aching loss, and one life story that will sweep you to the very foot of Golgotha.
