The Lost Testament by James Becker

17612581

I am really glad the author added extensive info in the Author’s Notes on some of the subject matters in the book. A lot of the scenarios are presented as fact and I actually made a few notes to myself to research quite a few of them, such as Propaganda Due/P2, Roberto Calvi and the death of Pope John Paul I.
I would also like to know where he got the statistics for the rise in atheism, falling numbers in Christian/Catholics ect. Just from a personal point of view it would be interesting to know whether there is a direct link to those numbers and events in the last few decades or to the actual lack of evidence.
The plot is good, although I did feel as if the actual revelation of the contents was drawn out longer than it should have been. There was far too much showing rather than telling. There is no need for each individual movement in a scene to be documented. Readers have enough imagination to fill in the obvious blanks. The writing needs to be more fluid and less staccato and report like.
I received a copy of this book via Netgalley.
