A frightened apostle in AD 33 – A tragic child in the 1950s – A slick, twenty-first century church leader…all linked by the secret of the Shroud of Turin, the purported burial cloth of Jesus…and by something more.

A corrupt, media-savvy clergyman, Wesley Bright, is out to destroy the Christian church of the God who has abandoned him. Likable, entertaining, his motives are well hidden. But as he seeks revenge, leading the church toward unknowing destruction, the mysterious Shroud of Turin stands in his way. Strange characters and clues emerge like shadows limned in mist as the most recent discoveries on the Shroud connect the pieces of a puzzle. When Wesley learns the ancient secret, he’s forced to confront a terrible choice-to keep the secret or expose it…and lose the power, wealth, and fame he’s won over the years.

At stake in this heart-throbbing tale is absolute truth.

Reviews & Endorsements:

“Looking for a religious thriller? Mandeville resident Pamela Binnings Ewen’s Walk Back the Cat (Broadman and Holman), may be just the ticket. Ewen has crafted her tale around the Shroud of Turin and the extensive investigations into its authenticity; her plot draws on an impressive range of information and insight from archaeology, physics, art and philosophy. All this hangs on the plot of an ambitious church leader, Archbishop Wesley Bright, who is shepherding the church toward destruction after his own childhood crisis of faith.

Walk Back the Cat is an impressive debut,though parts of the plot seem a bit unlikely. But her characters are well-drawn and interesting. And watch for the guy reading Confederacy of Dunces, a bit of down-home humor.” –New Orleans Times Picayune

“An engrossing suspense novel involving time shifts, mysterious characters, and the Shroud of Turin.” –

“It’s hard to read this book and not get involved. I found my face wet with tears as I read the last few chapters. Days later, I still find the characters fresh in my mind. This book has twists that aid in building the suspense. The characters are more than mere words, they seem to come alive on the pages. I felt that I knew them personally…This is Christian fiction at its best.” –

“This book will surprise and delight, and if you’re like me, will leaving you looking forward to her next book.”The Suspense

“A real page turner.” –Travel Host Magazine
