Ian Caldwell, The Fifth Gospel

Picked up Ian Caldwell's The Fifth Gospel the other day at an airport. It looked interesting, set almost totally in what the author insists on referring to as "the Vatican village." Two priests, brothers, one Greek Catholic like his father, the other Latin rite like his mother. Creepy; also heavy with dolore: the Greek Catholic's wife has abandoned him a few months after the birth of their son. And, surprisingly, about the Shroud. Just in these days when the Shroud is being exposed in Turin. About reversing the judgments about the authenticity, and so on.

I have picked up a few books about the Shroud, casual books. I always tend to check whether they mention the study of Danin on the flower images on the Shroud. One did. The others do not.
