Kurzbeschreibung

#1 Kindle Bestseller in BOTH Men's Adventure and War genres!

***Warning*** This books is an extremely controversial religious/historical thriller. Too controversial to be published in hardback. Please do NOT purchase this book if you were at all disturbed by DaVinci's revelations. However if you like your fiction to challenge historical events, read on...

"Carolyn McCray's 30 PIECES OF SILVER proves that Dan Brown's crown is up for grabs. Part minefield and all roller-coaster ride, here is a story as controversial as it is thriller. Hunker down for a long night because once you start this book you won't be putting it down."
James Rollins, NY Times bestseller of DEVIL COLONY

Other 5 out of 5 star reviews...
"In a single word? Brilliant!"
Kenneth Weinart

"Wow! I am so impressed when a (relatively) new author creates such a compelling, exciting and potentially controversial novel. The action is non-stop, the locations are intriguing and the characters are appealing. There is tension, romance, harrowing escape after harrowing escape all weaved within a story that captures your interest and keeps you guessing until the very end when you are floored by a surprise hook followed by an even more unexpected uppercut of an ending."

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Born in San Francisco, Carolyn McCray grew up in Napa Valley, California. A natural-born storyteller, she used to “direct” the other kids from her neighborhood in recorded readings of Nancy Drew mysteries. A lifelong animal lover whose first word was “rhinoceros,” she managed to fulfill her twin passions by growing up to become a veterinarian and a writer. She is the author of works as diverse as Pups in Tea Cups: Tales of “Littleness” Overcoming BIG Odds to 30 Pieces of Silver, an extremely controversial historical thriller.

Pretty much if Carolyn reads a genre, she writes a genre.

This is a good action thriller and conspiracy fiction with a religious/historical background story. I like the way the author has the historical story running separately to the main action thriller and contrasts back and forth. In addition, she has a different "twist" to the proto Christian alternative history story line and made it unique. It really was a page turner. For an Indi writer, she is just a good as a lot of the "main stream" writers in this genre that I read regularly. And no - it really is not a controversial book.

Yes, there are some errors in this story, but it does not distract from the story line. Some of the military action is not correct, but only an expert like me would notice it.

I recommend this book for those who love this genre or just want some escapist fiction to read on vacation or whatever.

What a waste of time. Word wide conspiracy, news from jesus christ, the U.S. of A. and their intelligent and widely read military, really tough ivy-league attractive female single super-scientists, shootings at the sorbonne and christian terrorists from the middle east. Sounds good to you? Then read it!

I can recommend this book for everyone who likes the Dan Brown books. I liked the plot and the way it was written. I wouldn't call it controversial though, except you are a very religious Christian.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must Read Thriller! 16. Januar 2011
Von mrneil98 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow! I am so impressed when a (relatively) new author creates such a compelling, exciting and potentially controversial novel. The action is non-stop, the locations are intriguing and the characters are appealing. There is tension, romance, harrowing escape after harrowing escape all weaved within a story that captures your interest and keeps you guessing until the very end when you are floored by a surprise hook followed by an even more unexpected uppercut of an ending.
From the opening explosion at the base of the Eiffel Tower uncovering a trove of skeletons to the final scenes throughout Italy, the story involves a search for the remains of Jesus. Rebecca Monroe is "saved" from the clutches of a snake by Sgt. Brandt and his special ops team deep in the Ecuadorian jungle and directed on a mission to aid her former professor/mentor/lover Dr. Lochum. This begins a rollercoaster ride that is intertwined with an equally interesting tale of Jesus and Judas and their travels and trials.
The characters are likeable and believable while not being stereotypical of the genre. Sgt. Brandt is a macho, military type but also a devout Catholic very knowledgeable in Bible history while Dr. Monroe is attractive, intelligent and handles herself well under pressure. The adversaries are a shady organization known as The Knot, with an intriguing pair Tok and Petir as emissaries. The pair are more than the sum of their parts as you will realize as you read the story.
There is a blossoming romance between Brandt and Monroe that is interrupted by Dr. Lochum. Although their attraction may be predictable there many detours along the way that keep the reader unsure of their fate, The secondary characters are developed in a way that makes them not only more important to the story but more interesting to the reader.
Thirty Pieces of Silver blends action, science, romance, history, and geography all into a fascinating thriller reminiscent of James Rollins, Steve Berry or Dan Brown. It has everything any reader would want and, perhaps the best thing is, there is already a follow-up on the way continuing the exploits of Monroe, Brandt, Lopez and the rest.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Thrilling, Brave, and Controversial 14. Juli 2011
Von Heather BookSavvyBabe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
30 Pieces of Silver is a very controversial religious thriller. The style is a bit similar to the DaVinci code in that the characters are on the search for controversial religious relics, and a secret society does not want the relics found. That's it for the similarities though. 30 Pieces of Silver is very much it's own story. The premise in 30 Pieces of Silver is forensic archeology natured, and definitely unique. The novel blends a touch of romance, action adventure, and dangerous situations together.

30 Pieces of silver is a compelling, brave, controversial novel that will leave readers contemplating possibilities long after the story has been read.

This review is not an easy one to write, as the book is highly controversial, my thoughts are a bit mixed. As I said earlier, 30 Pieces of Silver is a religious thriller. The characters are all in search of a discovery that could drastically change modern Christianity. I myself was raised with a very conservative Christian upbringing, and, while still Christian, I am now more progressive and have a pretty open-mind (I loved DaVinci code and had no problem with the religious implications at all). However, the assertions in 30 Pieces of Silver are very shocking and so outrageous that my comfort level was tested and pushed. In the end, whether I just did not believe the assertions or they were just too much for me, my impressions of the book were affected.

I loved the thrilling action and the depth created between the characters and their motivations, but the controversial religious assertions were a bit too controversial for my personal tastes. Even so, I still find myself thinking over the book and the assertions, definitely a thought provoking story. I must commend the author for creating such a memorable, standout novel.

Who would like this book: Readers who enjoy controversial or religious thrillers will enjoy this novel. 30 Pieces of Silver is thought provoking and exciting, a good read.

Who would not like this book: Readers who hold and value traditional Christian beliefs, or conservative readers will most likely not enjoy this novel.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Don't Bother 17. April 2012
Von Avid Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This poorly written novel is riddled with annoying errors in grammar and syntax, missing words, and misused words that should have been caught by Word. At one point the author states that a woman is "sucking her child;" I presume the author meant "suckling." If there was an editor, he was remiss.

The plot is a riff on the Da Vinci Code, but there is no research that makes it the slightest bit historical. The author even places a disciple named Paul among the original twelve of Jesus' disciples prior to the crucifixion.
I can suspend belief and enjoy a good story, but this one was just stupid.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow, this novel was great! 16. Februar 2011
Von Christian Woman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really had a blast reading this novel! The romance was wonderful, not too over the top and the writing was superb! Don't let the fact that this is an Indie book scare you, please. It was well fleshed and better than a lot of A list authors whose work is at the big publishing houses.

I don't know how to classify this novel, it was mystery, thriller, romance, all interwoven and it was so good. If some novels feel like cotton candy, this was steak and potatoes!

I will say, however, if you are a die hard Christian (like I am) you have to keep reminding yourself this is FICTION. The writing was top notch and I look forward to the coming sequel, Havoc. Hopefully Ms. McCray won't be too long...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Proofread Much? 21. August 2012
Von John Q. Bookreader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Normally I don't take the time to review an item whether it is positive or negative. However, this item was begging to be negatively reviewed simply as a warning to others not to waste their time. The amount of grammatical and spelling errors in this book is embarrassing, you will notice several in almost every single chapter. The author clearly thinks she is clever as it shines through in her writing style but it is truly common and repetitive. She appears to find a word she likes and beats it to death while not being able to come up with other synonyms, "blanched" and "hissed" immediately come to mind. While the concept seems interesting it is so poorly executed that is loses all appeal. Proofreading would have helped this book as the author seems to forget what she previously wrote. At one point she spells it "Levi" then a few pages later she spells it "Levy" and towards the end she spells it "Carpuchin" and then again a few pages later "Capuchin." Truly embarrassing.
