‘Advocate of the truth’ is a deeply moving story about friendship, love and compassion. At the same time it is a thrilling novel, showing the intense struggle between good and evil that hits home in today’s society. You cannot avoid reflecting on wisdom from the past and ethics for the future.
Thomas abandons his successful legal practice, seeking a new way of living inspired by the compassion of Francis of Assisi. When his best friend makes him vow to keep a groundbreaking technology away from mankind, he has no clue what awaits him. His life changes beyond control: he is plunged into a web of greed, fake news, aggressive populism and failing political leadership.
Thomas sets out to find the truth against a backdrop of intimidation and deceit. Nothing is what it seems. As he finds signs of a high-level conspiracy, a mysterious and deadly virus sweeps across the earth.
His tense search leads Thomas to the medieval city of Assisi, back alleys and dimly-lit churches in Rome, dark forces in Manhattan and a former French monastery overlooking the Mediterranean. Meanwhile, he has two women vying for his heart: a sensitive violinist who cared for his father in the final days of life, and an intriguing Parisian he meets by chance in Tuscany.
