The Judas Cup
She screamed again, pure terror ripping through her. She turned, a kind of numbness hampering her movements, in an effort to gain the doorway and escape from the nightmare. She managed a few tottering steps, heard the beast’s panting, turned to see the enormous head, wide-open drooling mouth and those saucer-like eyes about to reach her…
Almost 2000 years ago, Judas Iscariot betrayed Christ for thirty pieces of silver. Over the centuries that silver has been melted down and wrought into satanic instruments, most recently a chalice, the Judas Cup. This unholy grail, which has been sought by many, fought over – even held in the Vatican vaults for a time – is once again up for grabs, and there’s a desperate race to find it. Jake Ransome, fledgling reporter, is investigating several mysterious deaths, all linked to an occult ritual gone terribly wrong, and a church that will soon disappear forever in a flooded valley. How is the beautiful but enigmatic heiress involved? Why is her multimillionaire mentor so intent on getting her back? As dramatic events unfold only Jake stands as her shield before such a powerful and ruthless man. For Sir Nicholas Brookes it’s a quest that can have only one ending. Already in a pact with the Vatican, he must now dance with the Devil…for the highest stakes of all.
“I thought The Judas Cup was a brilliant read… I was engrossed from the start and couldn’t put it down. I would highly recommend this book.” Aimee Rowe, via Amazon
