The Jesus Spy

The Jesus Spy (novel) by Arthur JonesPaperback and Kindle eBook available from Amazon worldwide

Is Jesus the Nazarene preaching peace or revolution? Pontius Pilate wants Musan Deleig, his spymaster in Roman-occupied Judea, to find out. As Deleig tracks this challenging and captivating figure, he becomes enmeshed in a complex web of power struggles that threaten to destroy them both.

This compelling novel offers a vivid account of the Jesus story, with a rich cast of historical and fictional characters. Deleig’s Zoroastrian belief in a single God makes him an outsider in the pantheistic Roman Empire. So, he is a compassionate if impartial observer of Jesus’ preaching, trial and crucifixion. But the spymaster increasingly finds himself torn between his obligations to Rome and his moral duty as events conspire toward the inevitable outcome.
