Two men were childhood friends, until a devastating war separated them and each found his destiny—for good and evil Two childhood friends now have a distance between them, as a result of the ravages of war, a thirst for power, and a tragedy that neither of them can forget. Karl and Max remember each other as boys, but are now meeting face to face as men and must forget their friendship to work against one another. This sweeping, epic tale of love, brotherhood, betrayal, and the infallibility of men is perfect for fans of Ken Follett.
The year is 1953. As the Cold War divides the world, two childhood friends - now foes - carve out an existence. Karl, haunted by the past, teaches history in his home town of Hallstatt, while Max, driven by power and wealth, leads the Fratres, an extreme branch of the Catholic Church -with control of the Vatican his ultimate goal.
When Karl is called to Rome to expose the corruption that has infiltrated the Church, the two men are destined to meet again. The past must be put to rest. But at what cost?
From Moscow to CIA Headquarters to a Budapest prison, Sons of Cain is an epic tale of lust, power and corruption where deception is a way of life.
