Chase Baker is a true Renaissance Man. He's also a man who knows how to find trouble. A part-time resident of Florence, Italy, his resume reads like a modern day Da Vinci or Casanova. Writer, private investigator, tour guide, historian, treasure hunter, adventurer, and even archaeological sandhog, Chase is also a prolific lover. Unfortunately for him, his dangerous liaisons all too often make him the target of a jealous husband.
Now, at the direct request of the Florence police, he finds himself on the trail of an archaeologist by the name of Dr. Andre Manion who's gone missing from his teaching post at the American University. But having worked for the archaeologist several years ago as a sandhog on a secret but failed dig just outside the Great Pyramids in the Giza Plateau, Chase smells a renewed opportunity to uncover what just might be the most prized archaeological treasure in the world: The mortal remains of Jesus. But how will Chase Baker go about solving the mystery of finding both the archaeologist and the Jesus Remains?
With the help of Manion's beautiful ex-wife, Chase will manage to secure an up-close and personal examination of the Shroud of Turin, not only to view the famous image of the crucified Christ, but to unlock the relic's greatest secret, which is none other than a map, or a key, detailing the precise location of Jesus's body.

Private Investigator, Treasure Hunter, Adventurer..
This is an action pact fast pace read with a few killings and a lot of shooting.
Chase, the main lead, is an arrogant womanizer who likes to travel.
Overall, the story was ok, if anything it had too much going on for me.
Andrew B. Wehrlen did well with the narration.

"Just couldn't get into it."
I was given this book at no charge in exchange for listening and providing an unbiased opinion of it.
I tried to like the book more, but it reminded me of bits and pieces of other books I have already purchased and read or listened to.
I'm not saying it was a bad book, I'm just saying it never became a book I had to get back to, it, in a cliche, "Never grabbed me." I found it difficult to follow because of this. I knew I was obligated to finish it, but it was a struggle.
Maybe you will like it better. That's why we have different authors and genres to choose from.
Thank you for the opportunity to try a new author.
"I was really engrossing in the story right from "
the beginning to the end great book long but Great I received this book from the publisher, author and or narrator for a honest review via audio book. com
I received this book free from ebalst, and this is my unbiased opion. It is an ok story. the plot is Indiana Jones meets Dan Brown. The diolog is painfully predictable, full of cliches you know what the characters are going to say before the narrator speaks.
"Hooked me from the start"
Interesting and captivating story, this one hooked me right away. I'm not one for anything religious but the story was intriguing enough to interest me. A fun enjoyable mystery/adventure. Reminded me a lot of Dan Brown's books.
The narrator gave a great performance.

"adventure and suspense..hold on tight!!"
captivating Must read thriller about the search for the Bones Of Jesus Christ. there are secret messages written in the Shroud Worn by Jesus Christ leading to where His bones are really buried.. And those that will stop at nothing to make sure they are never found.. The first of the Chase Baker series, but defanatly not the last.. great narration believable characters, you will be hooked from the beginning to the last.. and thurst for more..
"Good Premise, disliked outcome"
Audio book provided for an honest review...Performance was good, well performed but story did not flow or resonate with me,maybe my faith caused too much of a Bias. Develop a story with some unknown element to prove that his has indeed risen, it can still be fiction if it is true.
"Twists and turns keep you riveted!"
I had never heard of the concept of Jesus' bones left on Earth.
Just as you thought they got away from the bad guys they were caught again.
No but his diction and cadence kept you spellbound.
When he was in the cemetery during the thunderstorm you felt the spiritual overshadowing of God.
