De Mers makes the disheartening choice to cross a seemingly serious work like, say, Lloyd C. Douglas's The Robe with Richard Condon's The Manchurian Candidate. Here, in Tennessee backcountry, a huge cloud and lightning transfigure the sky as perhaps a hundred fieldworkers and others witness the slowly floating descent of Jesus from heaven. Soon Jehsu, simply dressed, cures a sick horse, heals a lame man, walks out of a locked jail cell, fills an empty shrimp boat with an overflowing catch, and begins his second ministry with two shrimp fishermen and a streetcorner Bible thumper good.

My rating goes like this:

1. Awful tripe not worth reading.
2. I couldn't finish it, but you might like it.
3. Good. Finished the book. Probably won't reread, but I'm glad I read it once. I can easily see another giving this a four-star rating. If the book sounds interesting, then it's probably for you.
4. Excellent book. Might reread, but definitely recommend.
5. I already know I'm going to reread it. Perfect in every way that matters.

I'm going to keep this short because I'm a lazy wastrel. This book, foremost, is overwrought. I had to keep a thesaurus handy, although I could have gotten along fine just ignoring the words I didn't know. Being a writer, I wanted to learn.

Anyway, if you don't mind that particular niggle, then you've got strong characters, a strong, well-researched plot, and a lot of solid moments. I was interested in who this "Jesus" was the whole time, never quite sure if he was fake or not. The bad-guys were fun to watch, and genuinely menacing. The two lead characters, a priest and a reporter, were intelligent, brave and had good chemistry, if such a thing could be said of a written character.
The writing, although perhaps too lofty for its own good, exudes confidence and knowledge, which makes you feel like you're reading something intelligent and worthwhile.
Finally, although there are several POV switches, I was surprisingly not really bothered by them, and in fact there were a couple of POVs I quite liked. The third-person omniscient tended to read like third-person inner limited (stuck in one person's head) with some "head hopping," but it wasn't confusing whatsoever.

There are a couple of neutral points:
The wrap-up was fine, but left me feeling just slightly hollow. It seemed like there should have been, I dunno, something else there, but oftentimes I'll read something once and have this feeling, but then have no problem on the second reading, so it could easily be me.

So ultimately, if you read the premise, and you're alright with some at-times grandiloquent writing, then this is a solid offering. Keep in mind that it's a "thriller." That's an important point. Happy reading!

In Beaufort, Georgia, Jesus Christ apparently has returned to the earth performing local miracles such as the return from the dead of the daughter of famous evangelist Don Bagley. Through global communications of the modern world and Bagley's sponsorship, his fame grows rather quickly. However, as Jesus becomes a fixture on TV, he lambastes the modern Catholic Church for its corruption.

The Vatican decides not to check into whether this man is the real article or an incredible con artist. Instead, they hire a hit man to silence Jesus. At the same time as the Vatican puts in motion its assassination plot, Monsignor Harry Chifley engages disbelieving Wisconsin priest turned New York book store employee Brian Sheridan, an expert on the early days of the Church, to investigate this so-called Jesus. Writer Marie Olivier, who he met over a reflexology book in the store, accompanies him. As the two make inquiries into the contemporary Jesus, they are unaware of the threats from the Vatican and locally.

The underlying concept of THE RETURN is brilliantly designed so that the audience must keep reading to determine whether Jesus is walking the twenty-first century earth. However, on the other hand, the myriad of subplots from the hysterical reaction of the Vatican to the romance between Father Brian and Marie take away from the basic theme. Still Joe de Mers has written a powerful action-packed thriller that will receive either praise from religious conspiracy buffs or the Rusdie reaction.

As soon as I read the premise on the jacket, I had to read this... and I wasn't disappointed! Joe De Mers spins a compelling tale of modern religion's reaction to the second coming of Jesus Christ. The plot and twists throughout mimic modern day morality, or lack thereof, while presenting even an agnostic with a glimmer of hope for mankind. I found myself wanting the tale to be true, while admonishing those who would keep the future from happening. Anyone who wishes for a better world will find themselves drawn into this book head first. This is one of the better attempts at examining present day morality and beliefs and how it compares to what God had originally intended.
