A personal pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago thrusts Alan Merchant back into his former life as a military-political intelligence analyst, placing him front and center, leading a coalition of law enforcement and military special operations operators whose mission is to thwart a suspected assassination of the Pope Benedict XVI during Holy Week 2010 in front of the Cathedral. With incredible accuracy and impressive detail, this thriller will keep you in suspense until the very end.

I just now downloaded it to my Kindle. :) Now, is this book more akin to a Tom Clancy novel or a Dan Brown "Da Vinci Code"? :)

Thank you all.
I must give credit to Sil. Back in 2009 Sil was lamenting the growth in Camino books that appeared to cover the same templates: the Camino changed my life...the Camino didn’t change my life. I will walk and wonder again...I’ll never walk again. I found new spirituality on the Camino...I am changed, not changed, misunderstood by my family, friends , etc. Each is different, yet the same. Our rationale for walking the Way May change by the time you reach SDC. As, in my case, each of my Caminos was begun for one reason and completed for another.
I sent Sil a rough outline. She encouraged me to continue. Enjoy Alan as he begins his Camino as an act of penance that ends in a return to a world he had hoped to set aside.

Just tweeted the link and downloaded a copy for myself. Congratulations on writing and publishing a novel! Maybe you should send a copy to Emilio Estevez (or his agent). Tweet/Instagram the book link to him, too. Give opportunity an extra door to knock on. :)

Here's to the (future) movie version!

Coming from you it would carry more influence. After all, I am but your humble author.
