Descripción de la editorial
The daughter of a murdered businessman joins forces with a New York City cop in a perilous hunt for history's most coveted treasure.
Claire Andrews loved her father dearly, but now he's dead, brutally slain after attempting to sell an irreplaceable, possibly priceless saltcellar encrusted with rare gems. Leaving the Midwest for New York City, she seeks the help of Detective Artie Modelstein of the NYPD's Frauds/Jewels Squad, hoping to recover the lost treasure and clear her father's sullied name. But there are others on the trail of the missing saltcellar, and their interests lie not in the precious stones but in a secret hidden within.
Suddenly Claire and Artie have unwittingly become marked targets in a deadly game that has wound through the centuries like a poisonous snake - following a trail of death and terror from the ancient world to Elizabethan England, through the flames of world war to the present day - as a hunt for stolen jewels becomes a mythic quest that could change their world forever.
Rich in action, color, and invention, an epic thriller that spans centuries, Richard Ben Sapir's Quest is a stunning tale of adventure, love, mystery, and revelation.
