Judas the Apostle by Van R. Mayhall Jr. is a Christian mystery. The goal was to be a thriller but I found the first half of the book slow. I almost gave up reading it.
The last part picked up in action. I found the Kolektor to be over the top evil. I was unable to find him realistic. I gave it three stars.
There is an actual Coptic version of The Gospel of Judas that is mentioned in the Afterward that I found intriguing. Also the ways the manuscripts are investigated was interesting.
I received a complimentary kindle copy from IUniverse and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.
