Product Description

As the Smithsonian's president examines a newly discovered account of Abraham Lincoln's assassination, an intruder steals in, kills him, and disappears into the night with the document.

Vinnie Archmont, an accomplished and stunningly beautiful artist, is implicated. She hires the brilliant but secretly guilt-burdened criminal law professor J.D. Blackstone.

Blackstone finds himself uncovering the Mystic Freemasons' most guarded secret. He reluctantly turns to his uncle, a Bible-quoting Anglican priest and occult-religions expert. Enemies like a sorcery-obsessed billionaire English lord, a powerful U.S. Senator, and a ruthless prosecutor force Blackstone to employ all his cunning. In the process, he is compelled to choose between spiritual counterfeit and Gospel truth, guilt and forgiveness...destruction and a new beginning.

Publisher's Description

Publishers Weekly called Craig Parshall's Trial by Ordeal "an enjoyable romp for legal thriller aficionados." Now Parshall takes his readers to the nation's capital, where a hitherto unknown document has turned up...and turned into murder.

As the Smithsonian's president examines a newly discovered account of Abraham Lincoln's assassination, an intruder steals in, kills him, and disappears into the night with the document.

Vinnie Archmont, an accomplished and stunningly beautiful artist, is implicated. She hires the brilliant but secretly guilt-burdened criminal law professor J.D. Blackstone.

Blackstone finds himself uncovering the Mystic Freemasons' most guarded secret. He reluctantly turns to his uncle, a Bible-quoting Anglican priest and occult-religions expert. Enemies like a sorcery-obsessed billionaire English lord, a powerful U.S. Senator, and a ruthless prosecutor force Blackstone to employ all his cunning.

In the process, he is compelled to choose between spiritual counterfeit and Gospel truth, guilt and forgiveness...destruction and a new beginning.

He speaks nationally on legal and Christian worldview issues and is a magazine columnist. He has coauthored five books with his wife, Janet, including the historical novels Crown of Fire and Captives and Kings.

ChristianBookPreviews

The Rose Conspiracy is another exciting legal thriller by Craig Parshall. We meet J.D. Blackstone, a top defense attorney, who is hired to defend Vinnie Archmont. She is accused of the murder of the administrator of the Smithsonian Institute, and of the theft of some pages from John Wilkes Booth’s diary. J.D.’s defense preparation leads him into a background search of freemasonry and immortality. Is there eternal life? J.D.’s uncle, Reverend Lamb, seems to think Jesus holds some of these answers and hopes J.D. will come to the same conclusion.

Will J.D. find the Lord? Will he realize that he can’t control everything? Will he get Vinnie exonerated? Will she “capture” him? Who really killed the Smithsonian administrator? Do the pages from Mr. Booth’s diary hold the secret to immortality?

Matthew 7:7-8 would make a good theme for this novel. We have a man without peace and an empty heart needing answers, but not sure he wants them. The gospel is presented in conversations within the story, making this novel a good way to witness quietly to a friend or loved one.

This is a long book, but you won’t dare put it down until you reach the end. Readers get a glimpse into the court system, some background on Freemasons, and a hint of romance. What more could readers ask? Both men and women of any age will enjoy The Rose Conspiracy. – Linda Demorest, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    A great read. Some very nice twists and turns. I have enjoyed all of Parshall's books and this one was no different.

    This was a good read. I found myself thinkin surely this couldn't exist. But then reminded myself that the reason this is a lost and dying world is because the world has exchanged the Truth for a lie. It showed me some things I did not know existed or at least as a Christian am sometimes blind to their existance.

    The Rose Conspiracy is the story of a lovely but eccentric artist (anymore, what artist isn't eccentric?) named Vinnie Archmont who is accused of murdering the president of the Smithsonian Institute and stealing pages of John Wilkes Booth's diary. She is defended by a brilliant but flawed attorney (and what brilliant character isnt flawed?) named JD Blackstone with the aid of his Christian uncle, an expert on occult religions. Yet in spite of the predictability and the stereotype of the beginning chapters, the story becomes riveting and the characters realistic.For Blackstone, part of the difficulties in finding out the truth about the secret of the Freemasons lie on his own guilt-filled past over the death of his wife and daughter and his negative outlook on faith. Adding to the difficulties are his formidable and powerful foes across the aisle and a mysterious English lord. There are Christian undertones woven into the story, making it a matter of course rather than standing out like the preachy sore thumb. The story is an interesting historical suspense and one can't wait what the next page holds. The book as a whole is also well-edited, which is a real plus for me; I've read books by better-known authors with dismal editing, making for a jarring reading experience. This book is a pleasant read. I recommend it.

    Craig Parshall has done it again, he is an amazing author...one who 'hooks' the reader at the beginning and doesn't let you go until the very final paragraph.
