New Genetic Thriller with a Twist

For fans of Dan Brown, John Grisham, and David Baldacci, Crown of Thorns is a fictional thriller which takes place in the field of genetics and human cloning.

A young student at Oxford University has an idea for his doctor’s thesis (Ph.D.), which fulfils not only the criteria for ‘originality’, but goes far beyond it. For if Jason Dyke is right, his idea will soon change the world and shift the delicate balance of power from one nation to another.

Jason’s idea is simple: In the genetics laboratory at Oxford University, he will clone Jesus Christ.

But when the CIA finds out about his plan, the President of America realises that if the UK succeeds, the balance of power will shift from the USA to Europe. And he realises that that only way to stop this happening is for America to create its very own clone of Jesus Christ.

The race is on...


Genetics is the future. In the coming years, or maybe even months, the single most important scientific development in the history of mankind will be the development of human cloning. This book is based upon a simple idea, which takes the inevitable science of human cloning, one step further.

Whoever reads this book will never forget it. And they will ask….one of two questions:-

1: Is it possible?

2: When will it happen?

FIVE STARS : Totally preposterous, but enthralling!, 28 Jan 2012

I just happened on this book while browsing through Amazon to find things to download to my Kindle. The premise of the book captured my interest so I duly downloaded it. And, I loved it! The story is utter nonsense, let's be honest - recreating Jesus Christ through cloning?! But, it is written in such an engaging manner that I found myself drawn in unwittingly. Mid-read, I actually broke my ankle and I found myself begging my family to bring my Kindle to the hospital so I could continue reading the book! I would recommend this highly to any one else, with the proviso that they suspend belief and read it for what it is - a truly interesting and captivating piece of fiction!

FIVE STARS: A Thumping Good 'Must' Read!!, 19 Jan 2012

Browsing the Kindle store for something to 'unwind' me, I chanced upon this excellent gem of a book. To my mind, the Author mirrors perfectly the Biblical events of Jesus' birth 2000 years ago and the subsequent 'Revelations' predicted for our time. The Characters are totally believable, able to deduce and thwart the plans of the Americans and British governments and to hide the true Messiah. A well thought out and researched book by the author, I was totally absorbed in it from start to finish. Believers & non believers alike will enjoy this thumping good read!!!


FIVE STARS: Another page turner from Ian C.P.Irvine

A gem. I finished it on the long-haul flight last night. Reads fast and easy. And I liked the surprise character developments towards the end. Perked up my interest and kept me going. An adventure that I really enjoyed.

FIVE STARS: A fantastic Christmas Read!, 21 Dec 2011



Wow. An incredible story. Hugely appropriate at Christmas time...I can see why the author launched it just before Christmas! Controversial, fascinating, makes your heart beat faster at some points, makes you wonder "Can this be true, can this happen? And if so...what will this mean?" And if it can happen, will the world fight over it, or try to prevent others from Cloning Jesus Christ? Really, really makes you think!
Since I'm the first to review it, let me just summarise the story...a young, brilliant graduate student at Christ Church College in Oxford University discovers a new way to repair and recreate old DNA found on prehistoric relics. He then discovers that the Crown of Thorns exists and realises that if Jesus's blood was actually spilt on the Crown of Thorns, then perhaps, just perhaps, they could use his new discoveries to clone Jesus Christ!

But....the CIA find out, and the US President decides he either can't allow it to happen, OR that the US must create their own clone...

Can there be two clones?

It's a great story, just read it, and this is one book that I will be talking with my friends about over Christmas...
