José Rodrigues dos Santos

O Último SegredoThe Last Secret

(The Last Secret)


“Fiction and reality blend beautifully in José Rodrigues dos Santos’ latest book, The Last Secret. Is this really a book? It’s perhaps better to call it a bestseller (…) His demolition of Christian theology in the first 300 pages will leave even the most fanatic Catholic doubting the Bible (…) He asks the big question: ‘How would Jesus look into the religion built around him?’ The answer is well established in The Last Secret. Under the guise of a crime story, the author uses his hero, Tomás Noronha, to investigate the Bible as if he was investigating a crime scene (…) The Last Secret really contains a last secret, which is revealed at the end of the novel. The book’s ending is filled with unexpected twists (…) The finale is absolutely perfect.”
