An American policeman seeks retribution on the killer who murdered his brother in the brilliant Christian thriller The Survivor by John Zodrow. Bobby Powell was a priest granted the privilege to study in the Vatican library, and when he comes across a document that states Jesus survived the cross, he sets out to prove it wrong and meets a nasty end. When Burt Powell learns that his brother, Bobby, died in suspicious circumstances, he flies to Rome. As a policeman with a military background, Burt starts investigating Bobby's death. Upon his arrival, an assassin makes an attempt on his life, and Burt knows something is off. Everyone associated with Bobby's research dies by the assassin's hand, and Burt and Bobby's student, Lola, barely escape with their lives. With the killer dogging their steps, Burt and Lola travel through Italy, Turkey, and India, searching for clues to the explosive document and Bobby's murderer. With the assassin hot on their tail, can Burt and Lola survive? Will Burt avenge Bobby's death?

Blending mystery, suspense, and religion, The Survivor by John Zodrow is a sensational and unforgettable Christian thriller. Set in the mysterious countries of India and Turkey, the stimulating Vatican City, and the Kansas countryside, this exhilarating story takes the reader on a breathtaking adventure. Comparable to Dan Brown's thriller, The DaVinci Code, it is a captivating novel with a dramatic plot and a spellbinding storyline. The book's compelling protagonists, deadly adversaries, and picturesque settings create an enthralling story that is so intense I couldn't put it down until I reached the dramatic conclusion. This sensational tale contains action and suspense that promises to thrill everyone who loves exciting stories based on historical religious books and artifacts.
