Gray Basnight: Madness of the Q


Sam speaks truth to power

The Madness


The Quelle or Q document is a translated manuscript that purports to be the New Testament Gospels of Matthew and Luke. Their unveiling causes religious upheaval and a contagion of suicide.

This time mathematics professor Sam Teagarden is approached by the FBI who, in the prequel, made him the subject of their manhunt. Can he decode the Q and end the madness?

In trying to solve the puzzle he begins an international race from New York to Israel, and Rome to Berlin. It’s a lonely quest, yet he’s never quite alone.

Yes, Teagarden in on the run again, and I’m sure his knees aren’t much better. Fans of Dan Brown will appreciate this book.

  1. How interesting. I just read Daniel Silva’s latest book, The Order, in which a previously unknown Gospel of Pontius Pilate offers Silva’s Israeli intelligence officer Gabriel Allon the reason to visit Germany, Rome, and other places, in search of the roots of neo-Naziism. Must be the hive-mind at work in quasi-parallel!
