A sacred artifact.
A burned-out detective.
A trail of bodies from Brentwood to Boyle Heights…
The murder of a popular university professor unearths a mystery involving a 2,000-year-old religious relic stolen by the Nazis during World War II.
The object, secretly referred to as THE ANTIQUITY, is rumored to possess supernatural powers. LAPD homicide detective Jack Sheridan is skeptical… until his hunt for the killer leads him deep into a world of dark forces, shadowy characters and unexplainable incidents.
For Sheridan, the most startling coincidence is personal: this case is inextricably linked to a painful secret from his past. Forced to confront his demons, he soon uncovers an insidious conspiracy that threatens the future of humanity itself.
5-star Amazon reviews:
“I picked this book up on the recommendation of two friends and thoroughly enjoyed it. A shocking murder mystery, it roams across time in a genre-challenging roller coaster ride filled with clever clues around every bend. I found it a page-turner filled with interesting characters (even Los Angeles is as much character as setting).“
“The Antiquity is an extremely satisfying and well-written novel that you’ll have difficulty putting down.“
