Summary
Paris, 1923: a young American photographer, Muriel Ross, finds herself documenting antiques that US Senator Tom Bryan has travelled to France to acquire. At first revelling in the freedom Paris affords, events take a dangerous turn when Muriel intuits that Senator Bryan is on a mission far more momentous, and potentially deadly, than a mere shopping trip.

Asked to photograph an astonishing artefact – a piece of the True Cross on which, legend has it, Christ was crucified – Muriel is deeply moved. When rumours surface that a second fragment has been unearthed in Constantinople, she becomes enmeshed in a covert international alliance dedicated to authenticating this sacred relic . . . and protecting it from those who will stop at nothing to steal and discredit it.

‘Bunn . . . has mastered the art of weaving history and story together in a seamless fashion. Five stars.’
Dave Milbrandt, author of Chasing Deception

Press Reviews

Davis is a master storyteller and his ability to tell an ancient tale in a contemporary style regularly leaves readers wanting more.

- Dave Milbrandt, author, Chasing Deception

[Bunn] does something few Christian fiction writers do . . . his stories open readers to a bigger multicultural and multireligious world . . . he always seems to surprise and lead into places readers don’t expect.

- Publishers Weekly

In this fast-paced tale of good and evil, an expert storyteller plunges you into the shallow peace of post-World War 1 where secrets, promises, and lies mesh to protect or destroy a sliver of the wood that helped change the world.

- Ruth Logan Herne, award-winning novelist

(Of other titles by the author: Davis Bunn has created a thinking person’s Indiana Jones.

- Hy Smith,Senior Vice President, United International Pictures

The Fragment‘ by Davis Bunn is the perfect holiday read. An easy read, with a gripping storyline, and with spiritual truth woven through it. It’s refreshing to read a novel like this which has such spiritual truth at the heart of it. The Fragment’ reads like a more charming and less frantic Dan Brown novel, except here the input of Christianity is more obvious and certainly woven in as spiritual truth and not just for dramatic effect. A cleverly written novel, perfect for the beach, sitting by the pool, or just for lounging around on an autumn evening in front of the fire.
