This review is of The Spider in the Laurel by Michael Pogach, published in 2015. I won a copy of this book via a Goodreads.com giveaway. I want to thank the author for sending it to me.

Plot : The Spider in the Laurel is the story of historian Rafael Ward’s adventure. Ward lives in the post-religious Citizen’s Republic of America. He is a professor who is recruited by the Relic Enforcement Command to help track down and destroy religious artifacts. However, the people and stories along the way cause him to doubt his allegiances.

Review : The Spider in the Laurel is Michael Pogach’s debut novel but you couldn’t necessarily tell this. The story has similarities to the themes of many Dan Brown books: religious adventure mystery thrillers, but it mixes in dystopia in a unique way. It’s not quite as polished as uber-author Dan Brown’s religious-thrillers but it didn’t come off as amateur either. The stories were mostly unfamiliar to me but well-researched and believable. The descriptions of  the European cities the main characters travel through were thorough and delighting. This book made me want to take a tour of some ancient churches in Italy and France.
