The Freemasons' Most Worshipful Grand Master has been murdered. His body has been laid out in the ritualistic Chamber of Reflection at the Masonic Temple, surrounded by centuries of secrets. Royal Newfoundland Constabulary Insp. Nicholas Myra and Cst. Donna Whiffen dig through thousands of years of history, secrets, scandals, and symbols in a hunt for the killer. The search leads them back to the Temple of Solomon and the first Masonic murder.
Rumours abound of hidden tunnels under churches and buildings in the centre of old St. John’s which lead to an unbelievable treasure at the heart of an Ecclesiastic Circle—a treasure that many would kill for. This is the historical backdrop to Helen C. Escott’s engrossing and well-researched novel Operation Masonic. This thriller is exceedingly clever and compellingly truthful.
“The killer is always the one who is not getting what they want. Who must have what they can’t have,” Insp. Myra informs his team of investigators.
Operation Masonic is fiction . . . but steeped in truth.
