John Cabot University is proud to announce that JCU English professor Carlos Dews’s new novel Blood of the Lamb, co-written with award-winning mystery writer S.J. Rozan, will be published in August of 2013.

The Summer 2013 catalog for Penguin/Blue Rider Books includes a two-page spread about the novel, which is the first of a series of books that Prof. Dews and Ms. Rozan will write for this publisher, using the pseudonym of Sam Cabot.

The Historian meets The Da Vinci Code in this exhilarating supernatural thriller set in Rome, where rival groups are searching for a document that holds a secret that could shatter the Catholic Church,” says the catalog.
