The Peter White Mystery Series

Iscariot

JACKET NOTES:   in 33 AD Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. In 2005 AD those same silver doins still exert their malign influence over the weak and treacherous.

Raffaella, one of the Vatican's secret Guardian Angels, enlists Peter White to help her investigate a cult group who are apparently looking for the coins. Do they really believe thses ancient coins have supernatural power? Why are they searching the 12th century octagonal Castel dei Monte? Is the sudden arrival of an American TV evangelist just a coincidence? How exactly are the local mafia involved? What is the significance of the ranchy mermaid? Raffaella and Peter must race against the clock and answer these questions in order to stop impending disaster on the rapidly approaching saint's day of St. Michael.
