    "Person of Interest" by J. Warner Wallace (2021)
    Learn how to use an innovative and unique "fuse and fallout" investigative strategy that you can also use to examine other claims of history
    ...
    Detective J. Warner Wallace listened to a pastor talk about Jesus and wondered why anyone would think Jesus was a person of interest. Wallace was skeptical of the Bible, but he’d investigated several no-body homicide cases in which there was no crime scene, no physical evidence, and no victim's body.
    ...
    Join a cold-case detective as he uncovers the truth about Jesus using the same approach he employs to solve real murder cases
