Review by SonicQuack
The Last Gospel, another cash-cow upon the crime/religion genre sets new benchmarks in implausibility. The third entry in the series, akin to Cussler's Dirk Pitt series, sees a team of adventurers embark on another standalone quest, this time of a religious nature. The narrative is simple with rather two-dimensional characters, up against a poorly executed plot and 'enemy'. There's the required sprinkling of fact, both in terms of modern science and religious history. Overall though, the number of discoveries that the plot includes is simply too inconceivable, and it feels like the story has been thrown together rather than skilfully composed.
