Prior to becoming a Professor of Biology for 28 years at the City University of New York, Richard worked in the theatre on Broadway and, later, as a construction worker, often scaling forty stories to get the job done. Rachael, now a professor emeritus at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, held more than fifty jobs during her pre-writing career including driving a taxi, assistant to a self-made millionaire, emergency-room coordinator, and teaching sign language to a chimpanzee. Together they are the No. 1 bestselling authors of The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet book series, which has sold over eight million copies worldwide. The 13th Apostle is their first work of fiction and the natural result of their extensive life experiences.From Publishers Weekly:
The Hellers, a husband-and-wife team known for their health titles (The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet, etc.) make a thrilling fiction debut in this fast-paced, well-researched adventure, a foray into Da Vinci Code–style papal mystery. American cybersleuth Gil Pearson, a semifamous antihacker, gets tapped to help translate an ancient copper scroll that's meant to lead to a fabulous treasure. Accompanied by striking, strong Sabbie Karaim, a translator and former Israeli military operative, Gil travels to Israel, where he's introduced to the dangerous conspiracy that surrounds the scroll, and soon realizes the perilous position he's gotten himself into; apparently, the scroll contains not just a treasure map but the truth about the life and death of Jesus. As rival factions try to claim the scroll for their own agendas (to protect Christianity, to destroy Christianity, etc.), Gil and Sabbie head on a breakneck quest around the globe trying stay one step ahead of their pursuers while teasing out the secrets of the age-old document. A satisfying, well-structured entry into the still-hot subgenre, the Hellers have a definite crowd-pleaser on their hands—assuming it doesn't get buried in a saturated market. (Aug.)
