Caldwell’s The Fifth Gospel was
well-reviewed by Publishers Weekly,
which notes, “Caldwell follows
2004’s The Rule of Four (cowritten with Dustin Thomason) with
another superior religious thriller, notable for its existential and spiritual
profundity. An intelligent and deeply contemplative writing style, along with
more than a few bombshell plot twists, set this one above the pack, but it’s
the insightful character development that makes this redemptive story so
moving.” Join the best-selling author at

Paris in 1893, Sherlock Holmes and Henry James join forces in this outstanding
novel from Simmons, who has concocted something far from the usual pastiche,
with a historical figure standing in for Dr. Watson. Simmons knows the Holmes canon and
uses that expertise in the service of a highly original reimagining of the
beloved sleuth.” No deduction
