The Last EmberDownloadable Audiobook - 2009
A search for a priceless artifact stolen from the Second Temple in Jerusalem becomes a race against time, terrorism, politics, and the past. Jonathan Marcus is a promising young archeologist studying at the American Academy in Rome when a terrible accident results in a fellow students death and Jonathan expulsion. He abandons archeology for the law, becoming a skillful advocate for unscrupulous antiquities dealers. When Jonathans firm sends him to Rome to discredit the testimony of a prominent U.N. antiquities official, a chance reunion leads to a hunt for the legendary Tabernacle Menorah: solid gold, eight feet high, stolen 2,000 years ago and never recovered. As Jonathan and his friend scour Romes ancient sites for hints to its whereabouts, they quickly realize they are not alone and the precious menorah is a key to controlling history itself.
