The Fisherman’s Tomb by John O’Neill reveals how, in 1939, a team of workers beneath the Vatican unearthed an early Christian grave. This surprising discovery launched a secret quest that would last decades-a quest to discover the long-lost burial place of the Apostle Peter.

The Fisherman’s Tomb by John O’Neill also reveals the incredible, sometimes shocking, story of the 75-year search and its key players has never been fully told until now. From earliest times, Christian tradition held that Peter-a lowly fisherman from Galilee, whom Christ made leader of his Church-was executed in Rome by Emperor Nero and buried on Vatican Hill. But his tomb had been lost to history. Now, funded anonymously by a wealthy American, a small army of workers embarked on the dig of a lifetime. The Fisherman’s Tomb by John O’Neill is an intriguing read.
