Sex and Politics, Magic and Murder
In the tradition of Dan Brown and Umberto Eco, The Forbidden Book is an esoteric thriller full of sex, magic, and politics.
This gripping page-turner has something for every fan of occult fiction: a murder mystery set against the conflicts of Islam and the West with symbolism, alchemy, and magic fueling the action. The evocative setting of Venice and the Veneto dominates the plot, along with vivid scenes in Santiago de Compostela, Provence, Washington, and the Vatican.
The Forbidden Book delves deep into esoteric knowledge and practice, thanks to Guido Mina di Sospiro's extensive knowledge of Catholicism and Joscelyn Godwin's authoritative studies of the western esoteric tradition. Underlying the fast-paced action, the reader will find a profound treatment of moral and political dilemmas, the conflict of religions, and the frightening possibilities of the occult.

Joscelyn Godwin is a composer, musicologist and translator and is known for his work in ancient music, paganism and music in the occult. He graduated with bachelors and masters degrees from Cambridge University and has a PhD from Cornell University.

Guido Mina de Sospiro is an award-winning, internationally published novelist born in Argentina, raised in Italy, and educated in the United States. A graduate of the University of Southern California, he lives in the Washington, DC.
