by Tom Haase

We know what happened to the robe of Christ.

The experts were wrong.

An ancient manuscript discovered in Warsaw, Poland, reveals a secret Gospel and ancient Koran text lost in Spain centuries ago. And archeologist and former Army counterterrorist specialist Bridget Donavan is about to follow their trail to a shocking revelation that will shake the world to its very core.
