A #1 BESTSELLER IN KINDLE HISTORICAL THRILLERS Ancient scrolls hold the key to the origins of Christianityabut some will stop at nothing to hide the truth A suspicious death in Istanbul leaves one ancient scroll and clues to finding another in the hands of Drew Korchula, a thirty-two-year-old American expat, a Turkish dwarf named Kadir, and Zafer, a Special Forces washout. Drew is desperate to turn everything over to the academic community, and in the process redeem himself in the eyes of his estranged wife, but Kadir and Zafer are only interested in what they can get for the scrolls on the black market. Not everyone wants to see the scrolls go public, however, and some will stop at nothing to protect the Church and believers around the world from the revelations embodied in the priceless manuscripts. An action-packed intellectual thriller unraveling the mystery of a theological cold case more than two thousand years old, The Christos Mosaic is a monumental work of biblical research wrapped in a story of love, faith, human frailty, friendship, and forgiveness. Author Vincent Czyz takes the reader through the backstreets of Istanbul, Antakya (ancient Antioch), and Cairo, to clandestine negotiations with wealthy antiquities smugglers andruthless soldiers of fortune, to dusty Egyptian monasteries, on a nautical skirmish off the coast of Alexandria, and finally to the ruins of Constantine's palace buried deep beneath the streets of present-day Istanbul.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Christos Mosaicis part Orhan Pamuk, part Elaine Pagels, and part Dan Brown. But it is mostly Vincent Czyz, an irrepressible fiction writer who has the good sense to realize that scholarship is the friend of great stories -- and the talent to put that friendship to good use. I must confess that I turned to the novel for fun, and it is fun from first page to last. What surprised me was how very much I learned about the past. A wonderful novel." -- James Goodman, Pulitzer Prize finalist & author of "But Where is the Lamb?"
"There are people who can writeripping yarns. And there are people who can write fine, risk-taking prose. Not that many can do both. In this exciting novel, Vincent Czyz pulls off that daring double-feat with style and verve. Don't miss it." -- Peter Blauner, author of "Slow Motion Riot" & "Slipping Into Darkness"
"Like Dan Brown's plot [The Da Vinci Code], there is violence, narrow escapes from danger, hidden clues, and exotic locations. Unlike The Da Vinci Code, there are no nearly pure characters ... From Istanbul to Cairo to a gunfight at sea ... Czyz creates an exciting thriller, more eloquently written than most, but one which challenges the traditional religious faith of not only the Catholic church, but all Christian sects." -- D R Meredith, author of "Murder by Impulse" & "Murder by Deception"
