The Priests' Code
by B. B. Balthis

A Cotswold church and mysterious French village, Rennes-le-Château, combine with ancient documents, secret codes, the Cathars and the Knights Templar, to reveal a story that could shatter beliefs held for more than two thousand years.

Benoit Balthis, a French catholic priest and expert translator working in the Cotswolds, thinks his latest commission is just another interesting distraction. He is wrong. The parchments relating to the time of Christ, and the words written in an old diary, draw him into a world of secrets, lies, and murder.

Together with his historian cousin, Caro, Benoit sets out on a path of discovery that will take him home to France, and to the nearby hilltop village of Rennes-le-Château, already made famous by the discoveries of Abbé Bérenger Saunière, more than one hundred years ago. Here, the familiar surroundings reveal codes hidden in plain sight about Jesus, John the Baptist, Mary Magdalene, Martha of Bethany, and possibly the greatest conspiracy of all time.

'The Priests’ Code is an amazing achievement as an engaging, thought provoking, and altogether shocking portrayal of humanity’s desire to alter history for personal gain, power, and control. It follows in the footsteps of authors such as Dan Brown, Kate Mosse and the worldwide best-selling book Holy Blood, Holy Grail.

‘The words in this book will keep calling until the cry of mankind is heard over and above the voice of God.’

The story is continued in The Lithuanian, a thematic sequel that continues story arcs and characters from this book, whilst being open to new readers.
