Harvard Divinity School professor Karen King responds:

"[A] madcap, unforgettable book...for enthusiasts of ancient Christianity...and readers of idea-driven capers, whether by Daniel Silva or Janet Malcolm. It’s a barely believable tale, crazier than a tweed-sniffer in the faculty lounge."
     —NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW​

​"Mesmerizing....[Sabar] has our attention, and slowly, remorselessly, he pays out the rest of his devilish yarn...Savor the denouement—and don't leave at intermission."
     —WALL STREET JOURNAL
