We topped off a rainy Mothers' Day weekend by going to a book signing Sunday evening. I've written before about the writing team of Jefferson Bass (click here). They were at a bookstore in Knoxville, and since we already were in Oak Ridge for Mothers' Day, it was a small increment to go pick up their latest.
This one is set in France, where 2,000-year-old bones have been discovered beneath the Palace of the Popes in Avignon. The ossuary containing them indicated they were the bones of Jesus of Nazareth, which sets off a forensic investigation that leads to the Shroud of Turin. It all sounds like fun fiction (although with sound scientific underpinnings) and I look forward to starting it as soon as I finish re-reading Jim Wayne Miller's Brier Poems.
