From the penthouses and ethnic hubbub of New York, to the grand casas and poverty of Mexico City, from the Vatican to the altars of the Virgin of Guadalupe, a thrilling battle ensues over the second infant whose genes may be divine. Culture, history and issues blend in this passionate, sizzling plot as THE SACRED IMPOSTOR* explores human smuggling and the reasons for it, the ancient healing art of curanderismo, Mexican politics, the Virgin of Guadalupe tradition, and unfolds the mystical story of how the world reacts to rumors of a second Jesus clone.

*Twice optioned for Hollywood film, nominated for awards, and translated into five languages, THE JESUS THIEF is the first thriller in this series. BOOKLIST dubbed it "great stuff" in a starred review. A pioneer cloning scientist, the late Dr. Robert H. Foote of Cornell, called it a "spellbinder." Next came THE SECRET MADONNA. The story continues in THE SACRED IMPOSTOR.

While there is enough back story for the novel to stand alone, reading it without having read the previous two titles in The Jesus Thief series (The Secret Madonna, 2008, etc.) is like showing up to the party late.
