Vince Ramsey is a forensic expert and a Ritual Investigator in Israel. He is called in to investigate a mass murder in Masada. A dozen townspeople were viciously mauled to death. The location was also the site of a similar scene two thousand years previously. Did the death have a religious connection with the defunct gnostic Christian group, the Basilideans? How does the old amulet found by Vince at the scene relate to the current murders? Vince gets the help of a member of the Israeli Museum Collections Department, April Fulton. Together, they pursue clues leading to dark secrets and hidden history.
Realm of the Unknown is an exciting thrill ride through Europe and history at an equally fast pace. If you loved the DaVinci Code, you will also love this engrossing novel. 4 stars!
