The Mar Saba Codex : A New Kind of Fiction for the New Century.
Paperback novel, 662 pages published by O-Books UK, 2011. This book is a fictional study of Catholicism’s claim to ultimate truth through the eyes of multiple characters both for and against such a claim. It is, in essence, an intellectual thriller whose cliff-hangers are ideas as well as situations.
“This is a new kind of fiction for the new century, one that engages both narrative and ideas at the same time. Well-written and well-crafted, Codex harks back to the intellectual fiction that characterised some of the most important novelists of the last century.”
