The desert near Jerusalem. A renowned professor is murdered and a two-thousand-year-old parchment is stolen before its stunning references to not one but two messiahs can be fully translated.
Rome. Widespread panic erupts among the faithful when a charismatic American priest with long-hidden secrets is elected pope. Is he the antichrist or the second coming?
A political and religious standoff explodes. Archaeologist Jack Cane and Israeli police inspector Lela Raul must stay one step ahead of a vengeful assassin before they are permanently silenced and the real truth behind the scroll and its controversial revelations is forever lost to humanity.
"Dan Brown meets Tom Clancy—Glenn Meade sure knows how to get your pulse racing. I was gripped from page one. Whether The Second Messiah is fact or fiction is up for debate, but one things for sure—its one heck of a thriller. You know youre in safe hands with Glenn Meade—The Second Messiah is a rollercoaster of a thriller that lifts the lid on the inner workings of the Vatican and leaves you wondering just how much of the fiction is actually fact."
"A thrill a minute. A cross between Indiana Jones and Dan Brown. Thriller readers will love this book."
"Tell Dan Brown to move over! Its Glenn Meades turn."
"Reading similarly to both a Thoene novel and The Da Vinci Code, bestselling author Meades The Second Messiah will keep readers on the edge of their proverbial seats . . . The Second Messiah reads quickly and will hold the readers attention with its many plot twists. In the story, Meade also addresses the problem of suffering in an insightful comment from the pope. Fans of fiction tied to news headlines will enjoy this geopolitical thriller. Recommended for readers of Joel C. Rosenberg."
"This novel is a Da Vinci Code-type thriller, but its far more. The secret scrolls and chases are standard thriller fare, but deftly handled. Some of the characters are particularly captivating, especially the new Pope, a true follower of God whos tormented by his past and struggling with the future of the Church. This suspenseful book is well worth reading."
"Written in the mold of The Da Vinci Code—sans all the erroneous claims (thankfully)—bestselling author Glenn Meades latest geographical thriller, The Second Messiah, keeps readers on the edge of their proverbial seats with multiple plot twists."
"Meade knows how to entangle, and untangle, an exciting array of characters and plots guaranteed to keep the reader hooked . . . a talented storyteller, he sets the scene quickly before taking off on a rollicking ride that keeps the pages turning. Its a hard book to put down."
"Reads at a breathtaking, frantic pace from beginning to end. . . . A daring work of fiction that will have people talking."
Praise for Glenn Meade's other work:
"Meade's research is so extensive yet unobtrusive . . . that it is often easy to forget you're reading fiction and not history. This a completely riveting thriller in the tradition of the Day of the Jackal. A white knuckler!"
