This was an interesting book! Navarro creates an intriguing action-adventure surrounding the Shroud of Turin. Not on the level of a Matthew Reilly or James Rollins novel but still a captivating read! I enjoyed this one!

Boring mystery with some flair
'Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud, The' is a book written by Spanish journalist Julia Navarro following the path of sucess of 'DaVici Code, The' by Dan Brown.
As Dan Brown's celebrated novel, this book plunges into an ancient mystery concerning the Holy Shroud and its complicated ways along many centuries starting in tthe time in which Jesus Christ was still alive and living among us.
The book is much more accurate, in historical point of view, than the weird book of Mr. Brown. Nevertheless, is not a good book for a simple cause: the story is not engaging and the great number of parsonages made the book tiresome.
