Spear of Destiny
May 1942. Entrenched in the searing sands of Libya, a group of soldiers uncover a tomb. Buried in the ancient dust and they find a macabre crown of thorns and the devastatingly powerful Spear of Destiny. They've discovered the last resting place of Christ. Sixty years later. Gerald Usherwood and his old army pal Max Chippendale reunite with friends and family to trade stories and spread Christmas cheer. Dark shadows visit the old friends in the cold of a winter night and make them pay the ultimate price for the secrets they stole. Gerald's grandson, DCI Ethan Usherwood, is left to piece together the mystery behind the killings and to uncover the treasure they kept hidden for so many years.
