Part Indiana Jones, part Da Vinci Code; the Cana mystery is a thrilling read, especially the scenes set in present day. The chapters that went back in time were important to the plot, though they weren't quite as exciting as the ones set today. The story kept me well entertained, though. The author seems to have done his homework and it shows. If you like historical thrillers I think you'd enjoy this. It also had a nice touch of romance with resourceful, intelligent characters.
