Fans of intrigue rooted in religious tradition and history and steeped in the mysteries of sects,discoveries, and ancient texts will relish Brian Gallagher's Vatican Protocol, a novel based on real events.
Black operations groups,old wars between popes and Catholic hierarchies, heretics and philosophies challenged, and castles, labs, and dangerous discoveries all blend in a thriller centered on religious secrets.

Any who have enjoyed The DaVinci Code and Indiana Jones adventures will find  Vatican Protocol a hard-hitting novel of intrigue and adventure whose protagonist crosses continents in a quest to reveal an increasingly challenging truth.

Aliens, Nazis and the Vatican - what could be better for a story? Brian Gallagher has done a superb job combining history, mystery, religion, conspiracies, murder, intrigue and, of course, aliens in The Vatican Protocol. Once the action started, wow, it took off like a rocket. The plot was strong and compelling, full of action and adventure. 
The author is a great story teller and I found myself eagerly ready to turn the next page. Very nicely done.

Official Review OnlineBoolClub.org  of Vatican Protocol    4 stars out of 4

The story moves smoothly across multiple settings, including Wisconsin, Oregon, Germany, France, Amsterdam, and the Vatican. Each setting had a distinct feel and I felt like I was right there in each place. 
The tension builds in the second half and the storyline roars full steam ahead to a dazzling ending.
 I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys international thrillers with a historical angle. I look forward to reading future books by this debut author

Wartime Germany and Nazi secrets, castles, secret societies, and a Catholic Pope. How could these themes possibly tie together? We travel across continents, plunge into dangerous waters, and follow one man as he risks his life, and that of others, to uncover the mysteries of alien contact, advanced technology, conspiracies and frightening religious truths
Somewhat reminiscent of The Da Vinci Code, or at least as controversial, this book will challenge your beliefs as you plunge through this harrowing thriller. Loved the story and the idea. A must-read for all lovers of The Da Vinci Code and conspiracy theories!

Review: 4 stars

Brian Gallagher is a conspiracy theorist's dream come true. Brian Gallagher pens a tale of intrigue and suspense in The Vatican Protocol. This narrative creates an enticing maze, full of action and twists and turns, but from the very beginning reveals what lies at the maze's end.
I truly enjoyed the ending. The conclusion paints the picture held within the soul of every writer - what if my imaginings turn out to be real?
