A homeless woman is murdered in San Francisco and a death bed confession made by a man in Texas seem like two unrelated incidents but instead they are the spark that begins a deadly race to find a secret altar. Hidden in Siberia for centuries, the altar of Bones has been protected from those who desire the altar’s power.
Zoe Dmitroff has never heard of the altar until she receives a mysterious package that holds a long riddle describing the location of the altar. Knowledge is a dangerous thing especially when the hunters of the altar begin to pursue Zoe and the riddle. Zoe rushes to Paris to begin to unravel the riddle, and there she meets former Special Ops Ry O’Malley.
The hunters are always close behind, and she needs help to stay alive. Ry might be able to help her stay alive, but then Zoe doesn’t know if she can really trust him. With the sense of danger never far behind, The Altar of Bones by Philip Carter is a fun adventure filled with secrets and some surprising conspiracies.
