Item description for Emmanuel McClue and the Mystery of the Shroud by Tony McCaffrey...

Emmanuel McClue's highly educated parents thought it was the ideal job. They had been hired by an anonymous benefactor to travel all over the world investigating miracles and spiritual mysteries. They were confident that they could use modern knowledge to unravel ancient secrets. But then they found out the job could be dangerous for themselves and their son. It would test their courage, as well as their skills.

Their adventures lead them to Argentina where Emmanuel befriends a mysterious boy, pursued by a sinister cult. The boy is unaware that he is the subject of a controversial experiment and a startling secret. When Emmanuel learns the truth, he is faced with the most difficult decision of his life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Emmanuel McClue and the Mystery of the Shroud?

Emmanuel McClue and the Mystery of the Shroud  Feb 11, 2002
"Emmanuel McClue and The Mystery of the Shroud" is a wonderful book. Mr. McCaffrey does an excellent job of presenting the world as seen through the eyes of an eleven year - and making it interesting to adults also. The book investigates the relationships between Theology and Science in ways children and adults will understand. And to top it all off, the book is a very enjoyable read! I hope that there will be another book with Emmanuel McClue and Speagle, his beagle!
Emmanuel McClue and the Mystery of the Shroud  Jan 15, 2002
As wonderful as children's religious books can be, none that I know of cover and explore as varied a range of religious topics as does "Emmanuel McClue and the Mystery of the Shroud." Emmanuel McClue takes the reader on an adventure into the roller coaster relationship between science and religion, and my students were able to identify with an adolescent boy being put in difficult circumstances, having to make tough choices when confronted with the truth. With my class reading Emmanuel McClue, family relationships, exorcisms and the on-going debates between science and religion were discussed with great enthusiasm. I only hope that Emmanuel will return, again and again, with many more mysteries.
Look out Harry Potter  Dec 9, 2001
Move over Harry, Emmanuel McClue is on the case! Finally a kids series that deals with spiritual questions in the real world. Tony McCaffery has done a great job of combining mystery, adventure and education into a fast moving story. It's refreshing to see a series that tackles the question of good and evil using modern metaphors. I'll be collecting the future books in the series for my neice and nephew, but only after I read them myself.
Good job, McClue and McCaffrey!  Nov 14, 2001
As a middle-age reader, I am impressed by the author's clever ability to weave an exciting spy story around a 12-year-old and his dealing with several real-life adult issues. Emmanuel's globe-trotting adventures with his canine buddy give him the opportunity to face both scientific and religious questions at a level appropriate for his age. The integration of intrigue with the search for life's answers will appeal to both middle-schoolers AND their parents. I'm looking forward to a sequel!
GREAT READ!!  Nov 6, 2001
Exciting, fast-moving story should be very appealing to children and adults.
12 - year old Emmanuel with his side kick Speagle travel around the world
investigating mysterious religious events. The author deals with timely
topics in a straightforward and truthful manner. Great book for middle
grade schoolers and young teens.
