In this second serving of The Judas Reflections, the immortal Judas Iscariot (known by his alias of Emmanuel Ortiz) is hot on the trail of two precious coins believed to be part of the bounty once paid to him for betraying Jesus Christ.
The coins are rumored to be in the possession of a Pyrenean mountain Shepherd, who’s beautiful, but disturbed daughter, Rachel is purported to be something even more rare than a Judas blood coin: a genuine stigmatic. It turns out to be a deadly combination for Emmanuel. With blood on his hands and a failed mission to retrieve what is rightfully his, finding his second coin becomes a race against time.
What once looked like a quick journey to hasten his soul’s redemption turns into a tense series of events. Traveling thousands of miles across the world’s grand open waters with fellow immortal, Juan Garcia de Moguer, the captivating Rachel, and a ruthless Dutch pirate/slave trader named Captain Dirk Chivers teaches Emmanuel an important lesson about himself.
