Tim Wallace-Murphy, Writer, TV Personality and Lecturer commented: “A real page-turner, great plot, fast moving and a fun read!”
It all starts with a ring, inlaid with a seemingly insignificant black stone. Discovered on its own by the famous archaeologist Flinders Petrie, the stone had not been recognized for what it was, for up until the fall of Jerusalem in the 6th century BCE it had always been one of a pair. As a pair, these stones had been used for divination in Biblical times. Together they are known as the Urim and Thummim.
Determined to find the highly valued, lost stone and bring the separated pair together once again, a powerful secret order sends a team of intrepid researchers back in time to the era of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten, only to discover a much greater enigma.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE FORBIDDEN RELIC by Jeanne D’Août
Historical thriller novel
What if two young women of today, with no family ties to miss them, were sent off as covert time travelers to find out if the Crucifixion is fact or fiction? Would they survive? Would they come back? Would they change history? Would history change them?
THE FORBIDDEN RELIC is a just-published novel about finding the true Holy Grail by nom de plume JEANNE D’AOUT. Jeanne weaves impeccable historical research with fantasy/action/adventure, spanning two millenniums.
She raises some powerful thought processes.
Would we try to change history if we could, no matter the outcome?
Wormholes forming hypothetical shortcuts through time are part of the suspension of belief Jeanne asks her readers to accept, in order to explore the depths and consequences of human behavior.
Fascinated by unraveling mysteries at a young age, Jeanne D’Août settled in a mysterious part of southern France: where the Knights Templar of the Middle Ages may have hidden forbidden relics. Here, she got to know author Henry Lincoln, the man whose work inspired Dan Brown to write the Da Vinci Code. As a regional expert, she has happened upon some incredible clues that lead to her discoveries revealed in THE FORBIDDEN RELIC.
THE FORBIDDEN RELIC continues where the Da Vinci Code stops short.
ANDREW GOUGH, presenter of historical documentaries, Editor-in-Chief of The Heretic Magazine says: “The Forbidden Relic reveals more shocking truths than any book since The Da Vinci Code, including the identity of the real Indiana Jones. It would not surprise if it was adapted for the big screen soon."
PATRICK BERNAUW, a Belgian historical mystery writer, adds: “The Forbidden Relic is a historical mystery novel, reminding us of Dan Brown and his The Da Vinci Code. But what makes the book special, is the original and fascinating mix of historical mystery, true treasure hunt and science-fiction themes, such as time travel. And a superb blend of facts and (adventure) fiction."

on White Lie: The Quest for the Forbidden Relic:
"This story resonates with spirit and history,
seamlessly blending myth with reality into
a chilling and foreboding read."
There are secret underground compounds where highly specialised scientists, physicists and professors develop secret technology for unknown employers. In 2011, Professor William Fairfax succeeded in creating a stable wormhole, through which people could travel back in time. Unable to predict the miraculous events that were about to transpire, Dr Danielle Parker and Dr Gabby Standford excitedly travel back to the first century, where they discover the amazing story of Oshu, the real Jesus.
This incredible adventure back in time results in the terrifying abduction of time-traveller Danielle. For Danielle's freedom, the kidnapper demands one of the most intriguing historical artefacts known to the world. To find it, the team has to follow the old trail of the Knights Templar that leads them to Cathar Country in southern France.
The team is accompanied by a mysterious German relic hunter, whom had already been brought from the 1930s to the present: SS-Obersturmführer Otto Rahn. Though Rahn is assigned to assist the team in southern France, he carries with him a heavy, dark secret. In constant fear of being forced to return to 1939, he decides to follow his own agenda.
