Please give us a short introduction to what The Stolen Altarpiece is about.
Perhaps the best and most effective way to introduce the book is through its blurb. A compelling blurb creates interest and curiosity without giving too much away:
A long-forgotten amulet. A stolen painting. A dark threat reignited—one deadly geopolitical power-play.
Jack Rogan’s discovery of a hidden letter reaching out of the past unwittingly embarks the journalist into a dangerous quest to find a holy relic that has the power to fight evil.
As he follows a web of intriguing clues that take him on a dangerous journey to the Middle East, Rogan soon crosses swords with an old adversary, determined to destroy him and those he holds dear.
Soon, secrets buried in a famous stolen painting point to Russia and the threat of war in Ukraine. Joining forces with Tristan, a gifted psychic; Abbot Serapion, a Russian monk; and Sasha, the daughter of a Russian billionaire, Jack enters a dangerous geopolitical arena ruled by a deranged, corrupt man consumed by unbridled ambition and lust for power, who threatens to enslave a nation and destroy an entire country to satisfy his misguided vision of greatness.
Can Jack find a way to defeat the dark forces of evil and turn the tide of history before it’s too late, or will the horrors of war continue and consume a people who dared to stand against tyranny and dream of freedom?
THE STOLEN ALTARPIECE is the eighth standalone historical mystery thriller in the page-turning Jack Rogan Mysteries Series.
