“K.R.Richards returns with a fast paced story based on the mysteries and legends of the early church that have always grabbed our imaginations and just won’t let go. This time the hunt for the Shroud of Jesus has the Lords of Avalon traveling to Scotland to uncover the last resting place of one of Christianity’s most precious relics. Following the footsteps of the Knights Templar, the Lords must follow clues, rescue their ladies (as well as their comrades) and stay on step ahead of the killers chasing the power of the Shroud. Richards brings us characters we all love and mysteries we all want to solve in places we all want to visit. It’s a triple treat you just can’t resist.” – Amazon Five Star Verified Review
