I enjoyed this book. The 'Spear Of Destiny' refers to the spear used to stab Jesus by a Roman soldier at the site of the 'Cross'. This story starts in World War 2 1942, when a group of British soldiers in the desert of Libya, scouting for German forces, discover a tomb. There are many holy relics in the tomb of which the 'Spear of Destiny' is one. I will not reveal too much detail, other than to say 'the Spear' leads to many deaths and murders as it travels to 2008. Here the last of the British ...more

Spear of Destiny has a big, bold storyline, part Da Vinci Code, part Indiana Jones, and it cracks along at a rapid pace, however it is let down by awful characterisation, and some dreadful segues.
Two examples are the outrageously convenient chance meeting with Ilona and how she immediately turns from shy country girl into Lara Croft, and a comical description of Ethan's escape from a burning, smoke filled, locked room, emerging half dead and then carrying on as if nothing had happened without a

When old soldier Gerald Usherwood is brutally murdered, it seems his grandson Ethan will be framed for the killing, as well as the rape and murder of Sarah, his niece. But Sarah has actually been abducted and Ethan must follow the tracks of the kidnappers across Europe and into Africa. Can he save Sarah and reveal the mystery of the ancient desert city that hides a truth about Christianity that has remained hidden for thousands of years? I like Easterman's books and this satisfies as a religious ...more
The Cats Mother
Bit of a Da Vinci Code rip-off, about a team of soldiers who find Christs tomb in the desert in WW2, retrieve the relics and keep it secret. Years later, the leader, now an old man, is murdered, and his grand-daughter kidnapped by some very evil neo-nazis, and it's up to his grand-son to save her and solve the mystery. It wasn't bad as a thriller but didn't feel original and the ending was a bit dumb.

I loved it!!!

It might be because it's been some time since I read a similar book, or due tot eh fact that the last couple of books I read were a bit disappointing. It was well written and fast paced enough for me never to get bored.Thinking back, there might be parts were the author could have elaborated more and made them even more epic but it's still awesome.

Although I liked the book, I found it to be something like a made for TV movie. The story was ok but the characters felt shallow. I was hoping and expecting more.
Easterman is a new author for me and one I want to read more of.
