The Bone Keepers
James LePore & Carlos Davis
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“There is much invention and entertaining suspense in the book, which will surely please lovers of this genre.”
— Italophile Book Reviews
It is Rome, 1943. The war in Europe is at a tipping point, but the direction in which it will tip is terrifyingly unclear. For either side, one dramatic initiative could change everything. It is under these conditions that the Nazis discover a secret that has been maintained for nearly two millennia – that the bones of Christ have been guarded in a cave in Italy by a small, secret group. If the bones can be uncovered, Hitler will be able to use them to topple Christianity and turn the war irreversibly in his favor.
The clues to the location of the bones or the people protecting them are scarce. MI-6 agent Ian Fleming and scholar J.R.R. Tolkien – working in tandem once again at the behest of the British government – must spearhead a hastily assembled team, including an alluring prostitute, to piece them together before the Nazis can turn humanity on its head.
The conclusion of the stunning trilogy that began with the national bestseller No Dawn For Men and continued with God's Formula, The Bone Keepers is literary entertainment of the first order.
About the Authors...
New York Times bestselling author William Landay said, "Jim LePore is a great discovery." Blogcritics called his first novel, A World I Never Made, “An outstanding first novel, and a wonderful thriller.” Of his most recent novel, The Fifth Man, Tome Tender said, "This is another great read from James LePore, who seems to have a knack for writing dark, gritty and gripping scenes with characters that can make your skin crawl and will have you looking over your shoulder." LePore’s brilliance is his ability to create complex, relatable characters and place them in tense situations where their very humanity comes into question. The result is stirring fiction that hits you in the gut and the heart at the same time.
