Novelist pens a suspenseful detective story about a discovered sacred scroll written by Mary-Magdalene at the request of Jesus Christ
TORONTO, ONTARIO (rushprnews) May 2nd, 2007 â€“ In The Magdalene Code, author Edmund Kwaw explores the speculation and mystery surrounding Mary Magdalene, including her relationship with Jesus Christ and the primordial role she played as a true apostle in laying the foundation for modern Christianity.
Â The thriller is set in todayâ€™s Manhattan and reintroduces characters first met in Kwawâ€™s previously published novel, The Messenger.
In The Magdalene Code, Mary Magdalene writes and buries a sacred scroll containing the revelation of eternal life and the Return of Christ in a secret cave in Israelâ€™s Hebron Valley.Â Almost two thousand years later, the scroll falls into the unsuspecting hands of a professor and renowned paleographer, whose subsequent murder sets into motion a horrifying sequence of events with disastrous repercussions for whoever possesses the sacred text.
When an NYPD lieutenant comes onto the scene, he quickly finds himself entangled in a chilling web of international subterfuge, conspiracy, and terror, spun by extremist elements at the Vatican and a covert satanic cult.Â Each group seeks to possess the scroll for different reasons, and it is up to the lieutenant to keep the revered scroll from falling into the hands of either of the groups.
While The Magdalene Code is a work of fiction, author Edmund Kwaw draws from some remarkable theories that, if true, could potentially rock the core of Christianity.Â A controversial and well-researched thriller, The Magdalene Code explores not only fundamentally catholic dogmas but the darker side of human nature and supernatural phenomenon.
The Magdalene Code is available for sale online at Amazon.com, Borders.com, and through additional wholesale and retail channels worldwide.
