Item description for The Dark Side of the Cross: What Happens When Shaky Faith Meets Growing Uncertainty and Danger? by James S. Parker...
A disturbingly successful string of thefts of ancient, religious artifacts from Catholic churches in the New England area has left police baffled. Then a priest gets a call from one of the thieves, offering the artifacts back for a considerable ransom. Acting as agents for the church, James MacBridan and the Hawthorne Group are called in by the archbishop to handle this most delicate situation. The thief and MacBridan meet, but they are not alone. Something else has been waiting for them, something dark and terrifying. The simple exchange ends violently, leaving MacBridan unconscious and the thief brutally murdered. Although many of the artifacts are recovered, MacBridan sets off to find the most important of the missing artifacts, the Cross of St. Patrick.MacBridan finds himself up against an enemy more ruthless, more deadly than he has ever faced before. The body count and the terror continue to rise the closer he gets, all in a place where no one is who they appear to be. In James Parker's The Dark Side of the Cross, MacBridan finds that in order to survive he will have to lean on a faith that he has long since cast aside.

Page Turner!! Feb 28, 2008
I actually stumbled upon this book by accident, and started reading it, with no big expectations. I was very pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. I have a feeling this one will gain a lot of momemtum in the coming months as word of mouth spreads. If you like fast paced mysteries that keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat, this is definitely a good one.
Great book! This would make a great movie! Feb 12, 2008
Ok, I admit, I had a hard time putting this book down until the very end!! The dark side of the cross is a gripping story of a small town that becomes a centrifuge for a series of thefts, betrayals and murders and a detective's race against time to catch the evil culprits.
