Journal Entry 1 by wingPlum-crazywing from Brighouse, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Saturday, May 09, 2009

This book has not been rated.

As an antique map dealer in a small English town, Harry Blake appreciates the quiet life. But when a local landowner asks him to value a 400 year old journal and twelve hours later he is brutally murdered, Harry's peace of mind is shattered.

What does the dusty journal contain that is a matter of life or death?

Why is someone prepared to pay Harry a fortune to steal it?

He turns to marine historian Zola Khan to uncover the mysteries. The trail of the journal leads him into a world of deadly Elizabethan conspiracies, and the thread of history takes him through a thousand years of religious intrigue back to the blood-soaked Crusades. And he finally learns that at stake are millions of dollars and a plan to trigger nothing less than war...

Thanks to the Da Vinci Code there seems to a be a glut of this genre...priceless artifacts appear/disappear & the chase is on the solve the mystery/recover the item before death, doom & the apocalypse hits! Some I've read have been poor imitations of the style, however this I'm glad to say was one of the much better ones!

When Harry Blake was asked to value a 400-year-old manuscript little did he expect that he would end up in Jamaica chasing an ancient Holy Relic & bargaining for his life
The mention of the relic is discovered in the journals of James Ogilvie & the story is divided between Harry's current day adventures in finding the relic & learning the 400 year-old-story of James Ogilvie & how he came by it. Both parts are entertaining & it all added up to an enjoyable read.
