      Douglas Preston is one-half of the writing team that brought you “The Relic” and the mysterious Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast.

        Preston really explores the subject of science versus religion in “Blasphemy” and the way he does that is through suspenseful, page-turning writing. I stayed up way too late finishing this book, but it was worth it.
