PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A New York tabloid journalist says she put six years research into a new novel that may ignite controversy like The DaVinci Code.

Linda Stasi says she got started on what has become The Sixth Station when on a tour of Turkey the guide showed her a house where the Virgin Mary lived after Jesus’ life.

That led her to the Veil of Veronica from the sixth station of the cross, and a startling revelation: That the Veil was actually part of Christ’s burial cloth along with the Shroud of Turin.

“It’s been tested. It had no dye, no paint, no nothing’ but it’s a face, as you can see on the website, thesixthstation.com, a transparent image of this man with a broken nose and some blood stains on his face. It’s the most remarkable thing you’ve ever seen in your life.”

She says she presents her findings in a novel, rather than a scholarly work, to reach more people. She says the relic, rather than being at the Vatican, is in an unassuming monastery, hiding in plain sight.
