The Cristos Parchment

(A book in the John Taft series)
A novel by

A parchment is uncovered in Venezuela that might hold the key to the enduring mystery as to the genealogical records of the man who became known as Jesus. The document seems to indicate that one of the candidates in the race for President of Venezuela has that distinguished lineage. As corrupt U.S. oil men seek to rig the election as repayment for naturalization of their drilling rigs, church leaders ponder the consequences of the revelation and the president of the United States become embroiled, an all-out race ensures to solve the puzzle.
Anti-terrorism agent John Taft is days away from retirement when he is asked to travel to Venezuela to investigate the state of affairs. As the discovery of the parchment created chaos and unrest, he is drawn farther into a mystery that may change the course of his life forever.

John Taft, Special Agent with the National Intelligence Agency, returns for his final mission for the United States anti-terrorism force. Taft, who was near death at the end of The Tesla Documents, has seen disturbing images while in a coma. Are they real or imagined? Is the world he serves a vastly different place from what he has always believed? Can he ignore his ever growing cynicism for the machine he served and perform this last mission? While Taft grapples with self-doubt and even self-delusion, he is thrust into the center of a major world event.
Can a private intelligence corporation rig an election in South America as repayment for actions against an American oil company using elements from a pot-boiler novel? Will the leaders of the major Christian religions be able to withstand contradictions to their beliefs? Has the actual heir to an ancient family finally decided to come forth-and if so-why now? As always, against incredible odds John Taft works to find the answers. At the end of his mission, he is surprised by what he finds and who has been steering the events-and Taft will need to make a life-altering decision.
Is there another way he can work for the good of his country?
Fast paced and large in scope, The Cristos Parchment takes John Taft in an entirely new direction.
