The Coins of Judas

JACKET NOTES:  2000 YEARS AGO, 30 COINS BETRAYED JESUS 2 MILLENNIA LATER, 3 REAPPEAR. THEIR POSSESSORS HAVE THE POWER TO ACHIEVE ANYTHING THEY WANT. THE PRICE - A PACT WITH THE DEVIL.

Paul Stauffer is a brilliant, ambitious San Francisco criminal psychologist. Persuaded to lead a successful defence against a brutal rape and murder charge, why should he feel any guilt when the victim's sister then commits suicide? With such a high-profile victory, there can be no limit to his career, no hesitation over his lovers--but there may also be a very high price...

How can he resist the lure of ultimate power when he has the last Coin almost within his grasp? And especially when offered by a woman whom two millennia of men have been unable to resist? A.-Id can the inner circle of the Vatican stop the unleashing of the ultimate evil before Armageddon?
