After The Cross By Mike Lynch and Brandon Barr

I received this e-book for free from Author Mike Lynch for my honest review of this e-book.




Book Description

Colton Foster, once hailed as a renowned expert in Latin, Hebrew and Greek, had his reputation destroyed when a shadowy antiquities dealer outwitted him with master forgeries from Solomon s Temple. Years later, his career and self-respect still in pieces, a team discovers an 800-year old letter in Istanbul and his life takes a pivotal turn. The job of translating the letter, purportedly revealing the hidden cross of Jesus, is his for the taking, and with it a chance to redeem himself.
Mallory Windom is smart, beautiful, and skilled at getting what she wants. A linguistic prodigy with a dark history, she trusts no one, an important skill in the black market antiquities trade where she regularly sells her expert talents to the highest bidder.
As Colton and Mallory hunt for Christianity s most prized relic, mysterious forces seem bent on stopping them at every turn. They soon discover that the most important struggle of their lives is not around them, but from within, testing their beliefs, their ethics, and their growing love for one another

My Thoughts:

First I want to say how excited I am to review this book. Mike Lynch asked me if I would like to review his book and it is such an honor to be asked that. This is the first book by Mike Lynch I have read and I look forward to more of his books. After The Cross is an action packed story that is based on the idea that the Cross used for crucifixion of Jesus wasn't destroyed but was buried somewhere and kept hidden all this time. A letter is unearthed at a dig site that starts a race against the clock to find it. This Cross is being looked for by many people for many reasons including to destroy it before anyone can find it. In the beginning of the book, I had a hard to following some of the characters but as I continued to read it all made sense. This book was very hard to put down. This novel has a little bit of everything, suspense, history, romance. The characters are real people with many facets to them. I felt like I was there watching it all unfold. The descriptions of the places put you right there. The historical facts and places were very well researched and told with much authority. Throughout the story a strong Christian message is there. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys suspense/adventure Christian Fiction! You won't be disappointed!!
