Synopsis: The Jesus Thief is the suspenseful story of a momentous undertaking-an attempt to clone Jesus of Nazareth. At its center is wealthy New York microbiologist Dr. Felix Rossi who burns with unspoken questions as he leads a scientific investigation of the Shroud of Turin. Do the linen threads contain the blood of Christ? Is the DNA still intact? With all the chills of high adventure, The Jesus Thief tells of lost family ties and a lost heritage, of a devout man's search for God, a powerful man's fear of God, and a poor woman's yearning to be special. In the swirl of events, an unexpected love story unfolds.

From the Inside Flap: "It never failed to move Felix, this image on the cloth, viewed with scorn or veneration by millions over centuries . . ."

So begins a virtual autopsy of the Shroud of Turin in J R Lankford's sweeping novel that mixes medical high tech with the author's obvious love of people, cultures, and religions.

The Jesus thief

is the story of a momentous undertaking--an attempt to clone Christ.

At its center is Dr. Felix Rossi, a wealthy microbiologist who burns with unspoken questions as he leads a scientific investigation of the Shroud. Do the threads contain the blood of Jesus? Is the DNA still intact?

Later at his Upper East Side New York home, he must avoid the scrutiny of a fiancée, a devoted sister, and a prying maid as he works. When a reporter suddenly appears, hidden allegiances form against him. He must find a modern Mary without delay.

The Jesus Thief takes the reader from society galas to Irish pubs, from Turin cathedrals to Harlem churches to Italy in Fascist and current times with all the suspense of a detective novel, the drama of a thriller, and the periodic chills of high adventure. It tells of lost family ties and a lost heritage, of a man's search for God and a poor woman's yearning to be special. It tells a touching and unexpected love story, born amid swirling events.

Brilliantly conceived, masterfully written, this soaring novel is a triumph. You will believe every word and haunt bookstores in hope of a sequel.
