Description:New York: St. Martins Press, 1993. An ambitious detective story involving a found manuscript by Christ's 13th disciple, Matthias. Presages The Da Vinci Code, Matthew Pearl's The Dante Club, and real-world events (i.e., the translation of the Gospel According to Judas). INSCRIBED by Barnhardt to the writer Kaye Gibbons, urging her to "cut loose and give us an epic-length Gibbons for those of us who can't get enough." Barnhardt is a professor of creative writing at North Carolina State University, where Gibbons studied. A wonderful literary association. Fine in a flawless dust jacket.
