Fifty-one-year-old Jack Molay is a wealthy, retired engineer who w finds himself with plenty of time to read. Among his reading material are two highly controversial works of nfiction: Holy Blood, Holy Grail and The Tomb of God. Both books posit that Jesus did t die in the Holy Land, as the Bible says, but rather later in France--and that his body was buried there. Molay is surprised when he seemingly makes more sense of these books than the authors. He believes the books are correct; furthermore, he believes he can locate the final resting place of Jesus Christ. He organizes an expedition to southern France and, once there, uses his expertise as a mining engineer to locate a cave that contains two limestone ossuaries filled with bones. His friend and associate, Dr. Ron Campbell, determines that the hand bones show evidence of a crucifixion--but are the bones really the last remnants of Jesus Christ? Soon, Molay feels as if he and his team are in danger. The Vatican appears, as do other sinister forces planning to thwart their efforts. If Molay's suspicions are true, the implications for the entire Christian faith are dramatic. There are those who would do anything to keep Molay's discovery a secret; his curiosity could get him killed.
