The Marks of Cain is a work of fiction. However, it draws on many genuine historical, archaeological and scientific sources. In particular: The monastery of Sainte Marie de La Tourette stands in the forests and vineyards of central France. Designed by Le Corbusier, the building was constructed in the 1950s. Five years after completion the building was threatened with closure, as so many of the monks were suffering mental problems. For an hour David sat there, reading a book. Then his grandfather woke, and coughed, and stared. The dying patient gazed with a puzzled expression at the window, at the blue square of desert sky, as if seeing this last view for the first time.

About book: Maybe less. It was an exciting adventure story, but there was a rather virulent strain of anti-Catholicism throughout (though the author tried to exorcise it at the very end), and the ending left a lot to be desired, with at least one thing still up in the air. The author also used a lot of arcane terms, and I often had to check the 'net to find out what was spoken of. A glossary would have been nice. This is basically the story of two men. One is a journalist who is called out to a mysterious murder of an elderly woman. Her corpse shows signs of torture.
The Marks of Cain book. The Genesis Secret-already in its fourth hardcover printing and appearing on several bestseller lists-immediately established Tom Knox as a searing, brilliant new voice in commercial fiction. The Marks of Cain dares to raise the bar even higher and promises to be an even greater success.

I first found Tom Knox in an airport in the form of "The Genesis Secret". Since finishing that book, I had been eagerly awaiting Knox's second novel. I was no disappointed. Having taken a Creative Writing since reading "The Genesis Secret", I can say for sure that Knox has found the formula for a truly suspenseful, yet thoughtful thriller. I'm sorry to say I hated to see such a promising writer go the direction he did.
