What is included with this book?


Crown Of The Nazarene The Vatican is made aware that a thorny wreath is in Burgdorf, Switzerland. The Pope has the Archbishop in charge of the museum of Holy Antiquities in Vatican City go and check it out. Told him that if the wreath looks even close to the Crown Of Thorns that was placed on the head of Jesus Christ on his way to be crucified, he should purchase it. Supposedly, the real Crown had last been in the Cathedral at Notra Dame in France and had turned up missing since World War II. The wreath was not in Switzerland, never had been. The Archbishop was shown photos that had him believing that the wreath might be The Crown. He was told that it now was in Portland, Oregon.The Pope told him to go after it. When the Archbishop got there he found out that the wreath had been stolen from the man that had it. In reporting the crime to the city police the Bishop was made aware of a private investigator, Carmela Buenasuerte. The Bishop retained Carmela, her Portland street- beat cop husband, Shawn Patrick Sparrow, and two Special Security and Transport men, Gideon Nathan Blaze and Abraham Joseph Dooley...friends of Carmela and find the wreath. Their search took them to New York and from there to Sicily, Italy, Israel, France,Turkey...through Syria into the Syrian dessert on their way to Baghdad, Iraq. Everywhere they went they discovered that mysterious and unbelievable things had apparently happened to some of the persons that had come into contact with the wreath. To cross the dessert they threw in with a Bedouin camel caravan. Along the way they encountered bandits and eventually arrived in Baghdad where they found out that the thorny wreath they sought was in the hands of a young Christian Iraqi soldier on his way back home to Syria. Carmela and her companions followed. Then they went to Afghanistan where they were captured by Afghan Freedom Fighters who are considered to be terrorists by the Afghan Government that is in place currently. They get out of that predicament only to find out that the wreath has once more moved on. The wreath is with a very seriously wounded American service man who takes the wreath to Depoe Bay, Oregon. Some 3 hours Southwest of Portland. The search continues and so do the mysterious, unbelievable and wonderful occurrences. The Pope had decreed that no expense was to be spared. Carmela, Shawn, Gideon and Abraham would follow any and all leads to where ever that may take them. They were more than anxious to lay eyes on what they now fully believed to be THE CROWN. In the end THE CROWN, now in the Philippine Islands, floats out to sea. Carmela is sure that it will turn up some time some where.
