The Blood Gospel - Rebecca Cantrell, James Rollins

Great story....not so great writing. My suspicions are that Rollins provided the story and Cantrell did 98% of the writing, so what could have been a great book merely was something to pass the time. What worked: a quest to find a book written by Christ himself, the antagonists being a sect around for two thousand years bent on world destruction. What did not work: stale, plodding writing that turned potentially good characters and plot lines into almost a textbook. I will read the next one, but with much trepidation.
