"The Third Secret" by Steve Berry



Explosive in both its pace and its revelations, The Third Secret is a remarkable international thriller. Bestselling author Steve Berry tackles some of the most controversial ideas of our time in a breakneck journey through the history of the Church and the future of religion.
Fatima, Portugal, 1917: The Virgin Mary appears to three peasant children, sharing with them three secrets, two of which are soon revealed to the world. The third secret is sealed away in the Vatican, read only by popes, and not disclosed until the year 2000. When revealed, its quizzical tone and anticlimactic nature leave many faithful wondering if the Church has truly unveiled all of the Virgin Mary's words -- or if a message far more important has been left in the shadows.
Anybody else read this? I just finished it and liked it very much. Kinda like Da Vinci code in the sense that it uses factual events to lay the background and drive the story. I'm a devout Catholic and somewhat familiar with the Marian apparitions and that's what interested me in reading it. I think some characters were a wee bit too "evil" though for reasons which I won't spoil here. Highly recommended.
