Past and present collide in this spellbinding tale by USA Today bestselling author Joanne Pence.
Over two hundred years ago, a covert expedition shadowing Lewis and Clark disappeared into the wilderness of Central Idaho. Now, seven anthropology students and their professor vanish in the same area. The key to finding them lies in an ancient secret, one involving alchemy, gold, and immortality...a secret that men throughout history have sought to unveil.
Michael Rempart is a brilliant archeologist whose colorful and controversial career has earned him admiring fans and implacable foes, but he is plagued by a troubling sense of the supernatural and a mysterious spiritual intuitiveness. Joining Rempart in this adventure are a CIA consultant on paranormal phenomena, a washed-up local sheriff, and a former scholar of Egyptology. All must overcome their personal demons as they attempt to save the students and, ultimately, the world.
From the Journal of Francis Masterson, 1806--
All hope is gone. Evil is victorious.
In the time I have remaining I will, herewith, impart a tale so filled with Dread and Terror that my heart overflows with immeasurable Sorrow to tell it. It began with the highest of Good Will and Promise and, on my part, great Excitement. I can only trust to Providence that one day this small account which I leave in a land of unimaginable desolation and Wildness, may be discovered, and that it will serve to warn others of the wickedness that may ensnare Good men.
Ours was to be a Secret Expedition...
When Michael unexpectedly receives a recent picture of a long-lost love, a woman he thought was dead, he gives up everything to search for her and to find answers to questions that have plagued him through the years. Instead, he uncovers more mysteries as he’s drawn deeper into the occult and the ancient power of alchemy.
Michael’s search takes him from St. Petersburg, Russia to an archeological dig site in Ukraine’s Carpathian Mountains—a desolate area where medieval knights once roamed, and where horrifying secrets are buried—and at the same time it creates a mystical connection to the riches and debauchery of the court of Nicholas and Alexandra and the “mad monk” Rasputin.
As Michael’s quest continues, he soon finds that while he hunts, he is also being hunted. Will he find all that he’s looking for before it’s too late?
Join the many fans of the Ancient Secrets novels. Each can be read as a stand-alone work. All are available as ebook, print, and large print editions as well as audiobooks.
Archeologist Michael Rempart finds himself pitted against ancient demons and modern conspirators when a dying priest gives him a powerful artifact--a pearl said to have granted Genghis Khan the power, eight centuries ago, to lead his Mongol warriors across the steppes to the gates of Vienna.
The artifact has set off centuries of war and destruction as it conjures demons to play upon men’s strongest ambitions and cruelest desires. Michael realizes the so-called pearl is a philosopher's stone, the prime agent of alchemy. As much as he would like to ignore the artifact, when he sees horrific deaths and experiences, first-hand, diabolical possession and affliction, he has no choice but to act.
The dark legends are true. To stop the artifact's evil Michael must follow a path along the Old Silk Road to a land that time forgot, and to somehow find a place that may no longer exist in the world as he knows it.
When some workmen dig up a skeleton, Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield finds herself investigating a death that took place years earlier. She never imagines that it will have major repercussions on the lives of people she now cares deeply about, or that it will put each of them in danger.
Despite the bitter memories resurrected, as a cop, Rebecca has no choice but to pursue the inquiry wherever it might lead. But that doesn't make it easier, especially when it's clear that the special man in her life, Richie Amalfi, wants her to stop.
Dangers abound, moving quickly from warnings to out-and-out attacks. The past is shrouded in mystery, but as the truth begins to emerge, it becomes apparent that one or more people are willing to kill to keep it buried. Yet, Rebecca refuses to abandon the case because the dead, although silent, do speak. And it's her job to listen.
This is a mystery you won't want to miss.
Join the growing number of Inspector Rebecca Mayfield fans, as the books proceed from One O’Clock Hustle, to Two O’Clock Heist, Three O’Clock Séance, and so on. Once you start them, you’ll find the hours just seem to fly by…
When Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield investigates the murder of a delivery man and the disappearance of his two children, she suddenly finds herself a target. Boyfriend Richie Amalfi is convinced someone with position and power in the city's government wants Rebecca out of her job ... or dead. But who? And why?
As Rebecca becomes increasingly embroiled in a murder investigation with surprising and far-reaching tentacles, Richie intervenes on his own to keep her safe. He must use every weapon he has, including people with dubious ties to well-placed politicians, to learn about the sinister, unseen forces against her, and what to do about them.
But when the very people he thinks are targeting Rebecca become targets themselves, the situation turns even more deadly.
Don't miss Seven O'Clock Target as Rebecca and Richie deal with one of the most personally dangerous cases in her career.
The best-selling Inspector Rebecca Mayfield series combines fast-paced mysteries with a touch of humor and a hint of romance. Starting with One O'Clock Hustle, you'll find the hours just seem to fly by.
Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield hopes to come to terms with her confused emotions over alluring but troubling boyfriend Richie Amalfi, but her plans quickly change when her neighbor is viciously attacked. And it seems one of Richie's former girlfriends holds the key to the situation. As the body count grows, Rebecca's investigation takes a deadly turn when she becomes the killer's target.
Rebecca and Richie find themselves on a danger-filled route from a cold and foggy Pacific Ocean beach to the chambers of City Hall to the back alleys of San Francisco's Chinatown. Between killers on-the-loose, plus new as well as old "friends" to deal with, Rebecca isn't sure which one of them might prove to be the biggest threat to her life … or to her heart.
Five O'Clock Twist is the fifth book in the best-selling Inspector Rebecca Mayfield series--fast-paced mysteries with a touch of humor and a hint (or more) of romance. If you start with One O'Clock Hustle, you'll find that the hours seem to fly by ...
Richie Amalfi, who Rebecca sees as a charmer with an indifference to the fine points of the law, seems to know a little too much (or maybe a lot too much) about the people who are not only trying to stop Rebecca's investigation, but to stop her permanently. This only makes her question, even more, exactly who Richie is. But for now, he's the only one helping her in the face of threats to her life.
Rebecca's interest in Richie grows as the situation takes a deadly turn. Through him, she looks beyond hard evidence to the secrets at the heart of the case, and in turn, to the secrets of her own heart. But through it all, Rebecca has to wonder if she'll end up as dead as a cold Russian winter.
Who's killing the city's "enticing bachelors" and why? Rebecca must answer those questions as she grapples with her own questions and feelings about Richie. Rebecca soon discovers that where there's smoke there's fire. As she gets closer to the bachelors to learn why they're in danger, she finds their happy surface images hide troubling conflagrations below. When she's forced to dive below the steamy surfaces to learn what's really going on, only Richie has the insider knowledge she needs to do it. And while she might sizzle over Richie, the more she learns about both him and the case, the more she realizes that she may have just moved from the frying pan into the fire--with equally deadly results.
A handsome medium, a tormented ghost, and the FBI lurking around because of their interest in Richie and some stolen ancient artifacts, show Rebecca that the dead don't always stay dead and buried. And her emotions can't be buried, no matter how hard she might try. But following both just might lead Rebecca straight to the Great Beyond ... permanently.
