Barry Friedman (Assignment: Bosnia), a retired orthopedic surgeon, brings his medical expertise to his third novel, The Shroud. When some perverse trickster steals the Shroud of Turin and returns it torn and blood-stained, Florentine Interpol detective Arturo Benavivo is soon criss-crossing Europe in an effort to crack the increasingly sanguinary case.
