The Mason’s Most Worshipful Grand Master is murdered in the Masonic Temple. His body laid out in the ritualistic Chamber of Reflection surrounded by centuries of secrets.

Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) Staff Sgt. Nicholas Myra digs through thousands of years of history, secrets, scandals, and symbols in a hunt for the killer. A search that leads them back to the Temple of Solomon and the first Masonic murder.

A spelling mistake in a stained-glass window at the Basilica of St. John the Baptist and a Masonic symbol that fits over the map of St. John’s lead to rumours of hidden tunnels under churches and to an unbelievable treasure hunt in the heart of the Ecclesiastical Circle. An area few know about.

This is the historical backdrop to Helen C. Escott’s engrossing and well-researched new novel, Operation Masonic – The Lost Cathedral- from Flanker Press. This gripping thriller is exceedingly clever and compellingly truthful.

Operation Masonic is a fiction, that is all true. There really is a spelling mistake in a

stained-glass window at the Basilica and an Ecclesiastic Circle in the center of St. John’s.

“The killer is always the one who is not getting what they want. Who must have what they can’t have.” (Staff Sgt. Myra)
