Arthur Malory, a seemingly ordinary Englishman, has a burning interest in the Holy Grail, a passion inherited from his father. Thrust into a life-or-death quest to find the precious artifact, he will discover not only his own amazing heritage but the power that the Grail possesses--a power that informs the resurrection of Christ and explosively merges spiritual and scientific thought.

Great storyline, seems very realistic when history is thrown in and the story goes back and forth from modern day to decades earlier, using some known names. Another good book from Glenn Cooper

Fantastic, a real thrill, plenty of intrigue and mystery, just the way I like it. Dan Brown never fails to disappoint, the way he blends his stories with fact and fiction is brilliant. This story had an excellent twist at the end, I can see this as a movie.
