Operation Masonic

The Lost Cathedral

The Freemasons' Most Worshipful Grand Master has been murdered. His body has been laid out in the ritualistic Chamber of Reflection at the Masonic Temple, surrounded by centuries of secrets. Royal Newfoundland Constabulary Insp. Nicholas Myra and Cst. Donna Whiffen dig through thousands of years of history, secrets, scandals, and symbols in a hunt for the killer. The search leads them back to the Temple of Solomon and the first Masonic murder.

Rumours abound of hidden tunnels under churches and buildings in the centre of old St. John’s which lead to an unbelievable treasure at the heart of an Ecclesiastic Circle—a treasure that many would kill for. This is the historical backdrop to Helen C. Escott’s engrossing and well-researched novel Operation Masonic. This thriller is exceedingly clever and compellingly truthful.

“The killer is always the one who is not getting what they want. Who must have what they can’t have,” Insp. Myra informs his team of investigators.

Operation Masonic is fiction . . . but steeped in truth.
As Escott's fans know, she can wield some gripping, gritty stuff.-- Joan Sullivan - The Telegram --
This is a tightly woven mystery/thriller with enough red herrings and mysterious goings on to make this a page turner in the truest sense. The addition of the mysterious Freemason society (“it’s not a secret society, it’s a society with secrets”) adds intrigue and a touch of history, as St. John’s Masonic Temple is a registered heritage structure, and one of the most significant brick buildings in North America. Escott has certainly done her research for Operation Masonic and the result is a crime thriller that any fan of the genre will appreciate.-- James Fisher, The Miramichi Reader --
Helen outdid herself this time. Masonic is literally Newfoundland's Da Vinci Code. You're in for a treat!-- Nick Cranford, Goodreads October 31, 2022 (5/5 rating) --
This is Ms. Escott's best in the "Operation" series. It reads like a good episode of "Vera" only with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary's Inspector Nick Myra conducting the investigation into the murder of a Masonic Grand Master in the old Masonic Temple. Good character development and good side stories round out the novel nicely. A few F-bombs, but otherwise a good page-turning mystery with historical touches.-- James Fisher, Goodreads September 4, 2022 (5/5 rating) --
