For centuries, a secret splinter sect of the Franciscans, the Gnostic Observatines, has guarded secrets that could transform the world. Now the safety of those secrets depends on one man--and a woman he barely knows.
Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Eric Van Lustbader's thriller novel The Testament. Braverman Shaw—"Bravo" to his friends—always knew his father had secrets. But not until Dexter Shaw dies does Bravo discover that his father belonged to the Order of Gnostic Observatines, a hidden sect long believed to be extinct. For centuries, the Order has guarded a lost Testament that could shake Christianity to its foundations. Dexter Shaw was the latest Keeper of the Testament—and Bravo is his chosen successor.
