Recent release “Corpus Christi” from Page Publishing author Alexander Connolly imagines how the Universal Catholic Church will stop at nothing to conceal the discovery of the bones of Christ from the public eye while an equally determined former Irish Republican Volunteer and his first love will allow no barrier to stand in the way of the truth even while being pursued by the deadly ruthless Miles Dei.

Alexander Connolly, who was born in Northern Ireland in the waning years of the baby boom, and was himself a child of The Troubles, 1969–1998, has completed his new book “Corpus Christi”: an intriguing work that begins with a shocking discovery, and continues with a pulsating middle and finishes with an end that satisfies.

According to Connolly, "Corpus Christi was inspired by Tony Henry, a pious man, who in a conversation with my brother EJ and I over forty years ago in my hometown of Larne, Northern Ireland, gave me the idea for this novel. He did this when he was asked, “Could anything ever rock his faith?” and he said, “Only one thing, and that is, if they ever find the bones of Christ.”

The finished work is dedicated to the author’s wife, Eleanor, and their three children—James, Maire, and Anne—without whose endless encouragement, tireless effort, and selfless donation of their time to review the storyline as it evolved and the manuscript as it was completed, the seed would never have successfully germinated into the completed story it became. It is also in memory of the thousands of people who lost their lives during the thirty years of Northern Ireland’s Troubles and the millions of people who lost their lives for the faith during the two millennia since the birth of the savior."

Published by Page Publishing, Alexander Connolly's riveting tale draws on the direct experiences of the author; his wife, Eleanor; their three children—James, Maire, and Anne—as well as their wider families and all the friends and acquaintances they met along the way.

Weaving through of the beautiful Irish countryside, the great European cities of London, Belfast,
Dublin, Rome, and Geneva as well as some of the most breathtaking scenery in Europe, Corpus
Christi is a buckle-up ride from start to finish, moving seamlessly from the time of Christ through
the formative years of Northern Ireland’s Troubles to contemporary times.

Readers who wish to experience this thrilling work can purchase“Corpus Christi” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
