***FINALIST IN THE 2016 READERS’ FAVORITE INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARD CONTEST***
***Named by IndieReader as THE BEST indie book of 2016 in an Action/Adventure category***
A long-lost artefact… Nina Monte has worked hard to achieve her dreams. At thirty-six she’s one of Italy’s youngest professors, and renowned for her knowledge of the ancient world. Old religious texts might make for lonely companions at night, but that’s nothing a bottle of fine wine can’t fix.
When a mysterious summons presents a career-making opportunity, Nina can’t resist. A relic has been found in a 15th Century galley and it’s the kind of discovery encountered once in a lifetime. But floating atop the depths of Lake Garda at the recovery site, Nina senses something is amiss.
A race to unveil the mystery… With local hotelier, Alessandro Pini at her side, she begins to unravel the truth surrounding the relic. She soon realizes that questions of the past pale in comparison to the dangers looming in the present.
A ruthless treasure hunter… The mystical object in Nina’s hands is no trinket; it has the power to change humanity’s perception of existence. MANY BELIEVE A GIFT LIKE THAT IS WORTHY DYING—OR KILLING—FOR.
