The Pendulum of God

By Jordi Diez

Thriller, Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook


Cècil Abidal, a financial controller of NGO's, receives the strange order to auction some antiquities found in an ancient Spanish church, in order to allocate the benefits to humanitarian projects in developing countries. During the auction, someone pays one million Euros for an old codex added at the last minute that may be false. Cècil is forced then to find the real million euros codex before he can be killed by the unknown buyer, as has happened with one of the intermediaries. This search leads him to Azul Benjelali, a gifted expert in ancient languages, who disappeared when she was close to discovering the secret location of a vastly important religious relic hidden for centuries. With the help of Mars, a mysterious woman, Cècil starts a race through history to keep himself alive and decipher the historical clues, assembling the pieces of a puzzle that began two-thousand years ago with the last Essene, and crossed history via the Romans, Templars, Almogavers' army, Napoleon's troops and the Nazis...
