Judas of Rome Cover
Melissa Mason, a geneticist and member of the elite ASSASSINS team, with impunity from the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of the United States government, discovers billionaire Judas Nates' plans to clone Jesus Christ using the blood fibers from the Shroud of Turin.
But one thing is missing, the diary explaining how to control the genetic clock of genes in the human body. Melissa flies to Brazil to obtain the secret it contains and finds the weapon she needs to bring Judas down—his trust.
Judas’ sinister intentions to clone a human are revealed when several Bishops and the Commander of the Vatican’s Swiss Guard are murdered in exchange for blood soaked fibers stolen from the Shroud of Turin. With this valuable DNA, Judas imposes his plan on an innocent virgin who is made to carry the child.
What are the ramifications if Melissa fails to stop him? And why does her collaborator Cardinal Marinelli want Melissa to assassinate a miraculous twelve-year old child who reveals the beast numbered 666 in the Holy Bible's Book of Revelation? What secret does journalist Savannah Rand discover in the Bible Code that exposes Satan’s greatest conspiracy right inside the Vatican? What does the President of the United States have to have to gain if Judas Nates is assassinated?
Judas of Rome raises compelling questions such as: Why is the Church against cloning when Eve herself was cloned from Adam's rib in the Garden of Eden? Do cloned beings have souls? Can the Antichrist force the second coming of Jesus Christ through cloning? And, would you clone yourself to gain eternal life?
The book is available on Amazon.com, Createspace.com and Barnesandnoble.com.
