The Last Cato

The truth of the matter really is matiled I may well be categorized as one of those people who has grown tired of biblical mystery themed literature. Salina uncovers the connection between the brotherhood and Dante’s Divine Comedyand races across the globe to Christianity’s ancient capitals.

Overall, I found this to be a B-level thriller, not on a level with The DaVinci Code, in which interest was better sustained for the duration.

As other churches around the world reel from the theft of their fragments of the Cross, Ottavia and the others rush to join this hidden order so they can stop the pilfering and confront the enigmatic leader of the group, Cato.

The Swiss Guard remains manly and somewhat of a pointless spoke in their wheel.

I learned a lot about the early Christian Church through this book and so I liked the historical aspect. She specializes in ancient manuscripts and research, and therefore she’s stunned when her superiors need her expertise in a new assignment – identifying unusual tattoos on the corpse of a dead Ethiopian.

Either the translation is somewhat lacking or the author’s got a tin-ear for conversation. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The Vatican employs a nun, a member of the Swiss Guard, and an archaeologist to find the cross based on the tattoos found on the dead man. It ended like it should.
