5. Finished "The Fifth Gospel" by Ian Caldwell

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. As a historical Catholic, now atheist, I wasn't sure if a lot of info about the gospels would be boring. It turned out to be a good murder mystery, regardless of the scholastic details. The info about the shroud of Turin and the 5th gospel was interesting. The interaction between the narrator and his five year old son felt real. The ending was moving and outstanding.
