When a missing ancient manuscript is discovered in Rome, Lang Reilly sets out on a dangerous quest to London, Prague, and Rome to find those who would rather kill him than have him reveal its frightening contents.
In the secret archives of the Vatican, an ancient Tibetan document has remained hidden to everyone but the highest authorities in the Catholic Church. Those authorities had long ago disposed of the Cathars, the religious sect who’d once attempted to spread the document’s heresies of reincarnation. Centuries later, a young boy’s bizarre flashbacks as an Auschwitz prisoner threaten to prove the document’s theory of reincarnation, shattering the faith of millions around the world. The Church will go to any lengths to protect the scrolls’ contents and stop the boy, Wynn-Three, from spreading its heresies. But someone else has beaten them to it with an agenda of their own: the boy’s flashbacks may help reveal a long-lost treasure, stashed by the Nazis for safekeeping. Kidnapping Wynn-Three, these criminals take him to the snowy slopes of Germany and Austria in hopes he will lead them to the loot. And ex-CIA agent Lang Reilly may be the only one who can track down his young neighbor, Wynn-Three.
With criminals hot on his trail, Reilly races across Europe to rescue the boy. But if he can’t pull the missing pieces together and uncover the missing document, Wynn-Three—and the Church’s reputation—may both be lost to history. A fast-paced, intriguing thriller, The Cathar Secret enraptures from the controversial beginning until the shocking conclusion.
